CHAPTER XVI

whose significance had struck him, when Lord Periton pointed to the closet door of Halkin Square and remarked, " That's the geography in there." Denis had wanted to laugh at its pompous absurdity till he realised it was the proper way of addressing the lavatory. To-day he had felt proud of his father for his easy allusion to the geography of the place.
Peter put away his toothbrush and admired himself in the mirror. " I say, your people are great sports, Denis." He undid the neck of his pyjamas and threw himself on the bed. " Your father is not half the ogre you make out."
