CHAPTER XVI

At last they reached the bend. The car from the village garage, which Mr. Bailey had sent to meet them, turned the corner, and the river and the glittering marshes lay before them.
" Is that the sea over there ?" said Peter.
" No, that's only the river. It's high tide now. You've got to be careful when it's low-springs particularly," he said, thinking of the last day of the Easter holidays:
" That's old Fergus on the quay. Splendid old bird, when he's in a good temper. That's our post office and sockshop and fourteen other things together."
" It's a good view," said Peter.
" I suppose it is," said Denis. The car bounded over the last hundred yards of rough gravel road and lurched between the gate posts. He felt as if he were discovering his home for the first time and he longed to show Peter everything at once. He wondered if his father and mother would be waiting. A last turn and there they were by the porch. Mrs. Bailey had heard the car when still a mile away. " I think I'll go into Barford and meet them," she had said after breakfast ; but Mr. Bailey had discouraged her. " It may be late and Handsome will only charge you both ways if you do, my dear." So Mrs. Bailey had foregone the thrill of waiting for the engine's whistle at Barford level crossing and had listened for the car instead. Now she played with her fingers and tried to smile calmly. She shook hands with Peter and gave Denis a kiss.
" Very glad to see you, Lord Ockley," said Mr. Bailey. " Not much of a journey, I'm afraid. How are you, Denis ?"
" Jolly well, thanks, father. Hullo, Joan." He gave her a peck on the cheek and they trooped indoors.
