CHAPTER X

When everyone was down and Alec and Lady Bridget had arrived they wandered down to dinner. Lord Periton urged them on from the rear. Denis had seen Peter eyeing his new dinner jacket. He hoped it wasn't too dressy at the waist as Mr. Philbert had said in Denman & Goddard's. " We don't want you to look like a Harrovian, Sir." And then he saw Captain Williams. He was in tails and a white gardenia peeped from his buttonhole. He wore a white waistcoat with sharp points, crossed by a slender gold chain. The folds of his trousers lapped gently on his pointed shoes. There was a double row of braid on his trousers. Mr. Philbert had advised " one row to start with," but Denis decided to have another row added, when he got back to Eton, even if Captain Williams was a Harrovian.
" Will you sit next to me ?" said Lady Periton. " And, Alec, will you come here." Denis stood by his place till a footman thrust a chair violently into his legs. He sat down abruptly. "What was the final score?" said Captain Williams, leaning across the table. " I hadn't time to get a paper."
" Harrow 147. Eton 142 for seven," said Denis.
" Hum. Pretty close. Pretty close."
Denis had never dined before in a big house. At Anglersmead he had a knife, two spoons, and a fork. Here, a variety of different sized implements lay by his place. There was also a tumbler and two wine glasses. He glanced down the table. Everyone had three glasses.
" Marsala, sir ?" said the butler. Denis had no idea what he had said. " No thanks." He looked to see what he had missed. Captain Williams's glass had been filled with a dark brown liquid. He drank his soup busily.
" I hope you haven't seen the show we're going to ?" said Lady Periton. " Peter told me to get tickets for Honey Love."
" No. I've seen hardly anything lately," said Denis. " I'm looking forward to it tremendously."
" Honey Love ?" said Captain Williams. " Not again ? It's the fifth time."
