CHAPTER XVI

Lord Ockley says they can't get raspberries to grow either. How about loganberries ? They thrive here. I can never understand why."
" It's very curious, sir," said Peter.
" Do loganberries grow with you? " said Mr. Bailey.
" Fairly well, sir," said Peter.
" Do you hear that, Mary? Lord Ockley says that loganberries do well with them. I must tell the gardener that."
" Would you like to wash before lunch ?" said Mrs. Bailey. " My husband will show you." Mr. Bailey frowned slightly and led the way to the lavatory. " Yes, it must be the sea air that stops them growing," he said.
During lunch Mr. Bailey asked questions about camp. He himself had a fount of amusing stories, but he was a good listener and never tired of adding to his wide knowledge.
" What do you think, Lord Ockley, is the real reason why Eton and Magnafields are such bad neighbours ?"
" I'm not certain, sir," said Peter. " They think we are superior because we didn't ask for a return match at cricket, I believe."
" They're cads, anyhow," said Denis.
" How do you mean? " said Mr. Bailey, ignoring Denis.
" They asked us for a match, sir, and we got them out for about 13, and so next year we didn't ask them back."
" Quite right," said Denis. " They're not gentlemen."
" Aren't they, really ? " said Joan.
" Now then, Denis," said his mother, " you mustn't say things like that."
" Well, they're not, mother."
" I see ; and they think Eton insulted them ?" said Mr. Bailey.
" I suppose so, sir."
" Yes, I see. It's very unfortunate."
" We let their tents down on the last night of camp, didn't we, Peter ? " said Denis.
Peter laughed impartially.
" Tell us more about that," said Joan, who felt there was a good story lurking in the background.
