CHAPTER XVI

and coasting easily down the dips, swinging round the tall hedged corners and putting the z 2 h.p. to bed in the Anglersmead outhouse. Peter, so Lord Periton had told him in confidence, was to have a two-seater car for his next birthday, and the fact that Peter took so little interest in Dick's machine made Denis suspect that the secret had become a strong suspicion. After all, thought Denis, motor bikes were an awful nuisance. Dick was always leading his machine home with a broken belt, and once he had turned up at a cricket match with his trousers greased and frayed like the chimneys of the first railway engines. But there was a fine independence about a motor bike. A car was an impersonal sort of structure, in which the driver sat as if in a drawing-room and held a lady-like wheel. But on a motor bike there was just the rider and the road and a lot of levers and wires, that very visibly governed his relations with it ; and quite often didn't.
Denis bicycled home by the side of his father.
" How many did you make, Denis ?" said Mr. Bailey.
" Nine ; I got bowled by a shooter. I say, Dick's bike is starting better this holidays, father. He went off like a rocket."
" Really ?" said Mr. Bailey. " Is that the same one as he had last year ? "
" Yes ; it's an Avis. Only 2 1/4 horse power and single speed, but he gets up Barford Hill easily. Dick got it for ,£35 in Easthampton."
" Did Mr. Lett give it to him ?"
" For his birthday. Of course you can get a second-hand Avis for less than that. I saw one in the paper the other day for £28, with lamps and speedometer. But I expect it's gone now."
" I suppose so," said his father.
" Dick told me you have to write at once," Denis remarked to the handlebars of his bicycle. But his father did not hear him.
The family went to church next morning. Mr. Bailey and Joan set off first on foot. Mrs. Bailey, Peter, and Denis
