CHAPTER XVI

little tables crept closer towards him. Just when he reached the last room, all the furniture closed in on him, he struck out at a great vase and woke up. But to-day he and Peter steered a clean course through the obstructions and reached the terrace, where the butler left them.
They went down through the pine trees to the cricket field. " There's Denis," said Lady Hindley. " How very nice to see you again, and this is your friend, Lord Ockley. We're so glad you could come. Fred, this is Lord Ockley."
" Good afternoon," said Sir Frederick. He stretched a hand across the scoring book. " Amplehurst has won the toss. Will you go in first, Lord Ockley, and Denis sixth ?"
" Thanks, sir," said Peter. " But I'm not much of a bat."
" All right ; tenth," said Sir Frederick, and he wrote his name down in a neat, legible hand.
" How's your dear mother, Denis ?" said Lady Hindley. " She promised she would bring your father and Joan up to tea and a little tennis afterwards."
" They're all coming, I think," said Denis.
" That's right," said Lady Hindley. " That's excellent."
Denis and Peter sat down on a bench in front of the pavilion. The first two batsmen had gone in. On each side of them were coloured caps and blazers, and their owners looked sideways at Peter's double-breasted lounge coat and soft felt hat. Etonians without a colour had nothing to wear in the holidays to distinguish them. So they dressed as plain country gentlemen and looked down on the complicated caps and blazers of other schools. As soon as they left, they bought O.E. blazers, ties, scarves, braces, and cigarette cases.
Denis introduced Peter to Pat Bloomfield and Dick Lett, who lived in Barford.
" Going to make a lot of runs, Denis, this hols. ?" said Pat.
" I expect so. How's your tennis ?"
" I've got a new overhead service. It's pretty posh."
" We all know about your service. Eight serves a game, isn't it ? "
