CHAPTER X

" Would you like to see what is coming? " said Lady Periton. She pushed the menu towards him. " Selle d'agneau," read Denis. That was something to do with lamb. But he had only a small knife and fork left. He had given himself away this time. Perhaps no one would notice if he used them. Or he might refuse the selle d'agneau and sit idle while everyone ate. The footman took away his plate, swooped down again and put a clean plate before him. On it were a large knife and fork. Denis breathed. Then he saw it was his footman ; the deity, who had tied his tie. He must have spotted that he had used the wrong knife and fork and brought fresh ones to his aid. But Lady Bridget seemed to have done the same, and Lord Periton, and Peter. It was all right after all, and the small knife and fork were for the savoury. He tasted the claret. It was rough and sour after the white wine.
" Would you like some lemonade ?" said Lady Periton.
" Thanks, if you don't mind, I think I would." He saw that Peter was also drinking lemonade. He drank two glasses, and it was cool and not too sweet.
Dinner went more smoothly after that. And then came dessert. Denis had never seen so much fruit on a table. Dishes of peaches, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, figs, and grapes were handed round. Lord Periton and Peter added a specimen from each dish to their collection. Denis took a peach, because the peach dish was handed first.
" Do have some grapes, won't you ?" said Lady Periton. A pair of scissors lay on the dish. He snapped them at a promising branch and two single grapes fell on the table. Another snap and the scissors skidded on the stalk. The dish quivered slightly in the footman's hand. No wonder the man was getting impatient. Lady Periton was peeling a nectarine. Denis seized a small bunch with one hand and twisted with the other. A few grapes fell. A bedraggled stalk with three bloomless grapes came away at last. The footman set down the dish in the centre of the table. A muscle ached in his arm.
There was no time for gossip after dinner. They bundled
