CHAPTER XI

The deity came in at half-past eight. Denis had been awake for some time, listening to the sounds of London. With half closed eyes he watched the deity move round the room. Yesterday he had been in livery and buttons. To-day he wore a plain suit of dark grey. Denis was not even sure it was the same deity. The bowels of the Periton house must be alive with them. The man was in no hurry. Calmly he folded shirt, tie, socks, and underwear and put them away. Now he was busy with his Eton clothes. He made no sound.
At first, Denis pretended to be asleep. But the silence was ridiculous. He must say something ; fraternise with the deity, to break the silence.
" What sort of a day is it ? " he said in a sleepy voice.
" A fine morning, sir, and going to be hot later on," said the man. He laid a spotted tie on the dressing-table. Denis wracked his brain for further conversation. What was topical besides Lord's ? Of horse racing he knew nothing. Politics ? A little heavy for the bedroom. The Royal Academy, whose illustrated catalogue he had seen ?
" Who is going to win to-day, if I may ask, sir ?" said the footman. He stooped to lay a shoe horn across his shoes. They shone with a lustre that would have infuriated old Hodge.
" We are, I think," said Denis. By Jove, the man was human. He knew about the match. He was a decent sort of cove after all.
" It all depends whether we can get their captain out a second time. He's a jolly sound bat."
" Yes, sir," said the footman.
" And if he gets set again they'll make a draw of it,"
