CHAPTER XI

"Yes, sir," said the footman. He gathered up Denis's evening clothes and prepared to leave.
" Oh, I say, where's the bathroom ? " said Denis.
" The second door on the right, sir. Would you like me to run your bath now, sir ?"
" Oh, no hurry. What time does Peter ... I mean Lord Ockley, have his bath ? "
" His lordship is not yet awake. Perhaps you would care to have your bath first, sir?"
" Yes. Thanks very much. What time is breakfast ?"
" Breakfast is at nine-thirty, sir, but Lord Ockley does not get down as a rule before ten." The footman smiled.
" Thanks. Oh, I say . . . Right, thanks very much." Denis could think of no further questions. The footman closed the door, and he was alone again in his small room in the big house. He had an hour before breakfast. He needn't get up for a moment. He opened The First Hundred Thousand and read a few pages. He wondered if the footman had turned on the bath and expected him to have it at once. If he lay reading, perhaps a thin stream of water would creep out under the second door on the right and flood the passage. He sat up in bed and there was a knock on the door. The footman came in with his evening clothes, brushed and folded. " Your bath is ready, sir," he said, and retired.
Denis got up and put on his grey woollen dressing gown. Damn. He had forgotten to pack his bedroom slippers. If Lady Periton saw him walking about her house with bare feet. He slipped into his cold, patent leather shoes and looked for a towel. There were only slippery linen face towels in the room. He shuffled along to the bathroom. Several big, woolly towels were warming on the hot water pipes.
At Anglersmead, the bath stood out a foot from the walls and there was a space between it and the floor. At Anglersmead he used to lower himself into six inches of tepid water and soap himself quickly and jump out. " Bath ready, father," and leaving the cold running, he would hurry back
