CHAPTER XVI

Bailey in the stern held the tiller and looked away at the green spear beds.
" I think I'm better on the Thames," said Peter. " I prefer the bank holiday style."
" Don't worry about your legs," said Denis. " Quick erks with the arms." The bow surged forward with short rushes, and Jack Hood, the poacher, paddling up along the flats, laughed to himself.
" Good evening, Master Denis," he bawled across the river. " Glad to see you back again." " Good evening, Jack," said Denis. " How's the fishing? "
The poacher shook a fist and paddled on.
" You're quite a character on the river," said Peter.
" They all know Denis," said Mrs. Bailey. "Jack Hood asked me last week when he was coming home."
" Old money grubber," said Denis. " But he won't get any more now I've got the centreboard."
" He's very fond of you, really," said his mother. " So is Fergus."
" We don't think," said Denis. " Come on, Peter, let's give her ten in racing style. Are you ready ?"
The postman, returning from his daily row to Fanny Castle, hung on his oars and watched the Cormorant. " So master Denis is back," he said to himself. " The river will be livelier now."
The Baileys had supper at seven-thirty ; but in honour of the guest the meal had been promoted to dinner and the time advanced to seven-forty-five. Mr. Bailey wore his dinner jacket, though he told the boys not to change. Joan looked very grown up in a frock of apple green with more than a trace of powder on her face.
After the soup, Denis got up to change the plates. But Annie came into the room. His mother seemed to be talking with unusual animation, while the parlourmaid clattered the plates one on the other and bore them off to the pantry. In came Annie with a plate of fish, and Denis saw the menu written in round and flowing script :
