CHAPTER XVI

" Have some more tart, Lord Ockley," said Mrs. Bailey. " You must be hungry if you got up so early."
" Do you mind if I do?" said Peter. "It's awfully good." He handed up his plate and Mrs. Bailey made a quick mental rearrangement of the evening meal.
After lunch, Mrs. Bailey suggested a short nap. The excitement of getting up early and the journey home had subsided and they were both tired and sleepy. Denis showed Peter his room and fell asleep on his own bed. When he next opened his eyes it was tea time. His mother and father were alone in the drawing-room. Joan had gone out to a tennis party. The two hours' sleep in his bedroom had put a gap between Anglersmead and his life of the last fortnight. Tidworth and Eton were already far away. Eager to begin the holidays, he suggested that they should all go down to the quay and inspect the Cormorant.
" You'll find it at its moorings," said Mr. Bailey. " The centreboard is done and I have had it scraped and varnished, though you will have to take down the sails and oars yourselves."
" Thanks, awfully, father. Will you come down, too? We might all go for a short row. The tide will be too low for sailing."
Mr. Bailey hesitated. " No, I have got some writing to do. Another time. Perhaps your mother would come if you asked her."
" I don't think I will to-day," said Mrs. Bailey. " You take Lord Ockley out yourself. I've got the whole holidays for a sail." She smiled at Peter.
" Oh, come on, mum," said Denis.
" Yes, do come too," said Peter.
" All right then, if you really want me to. I'll just go and put on my hat and some thin shoes. You go on."
" No, we'll wait for you," said Denis. He ran through to the outhouse to collect the oars, singing to himself. The holidays had started well.
