CHAPTER XVII

" I hope he didn't think you couldn't afford to pay your share ? "
" Good heavens, no. It was a damned good rag. Don't tell father, mum, but I had two glasses of port. You're right ; it's not such bad stuff." Better not add that he had a whisky and soda and another port after dinner.
" I'm sure that was forbidden, wasn't it? And you told your father you had never tasted strong drink."
" You won't tell, will you, mum? "
" It depends."
" And then we mobbed some Magnafieldians on the way back, and old Featherstone was laid out. I socked one fellow in the face and would have laid him out, if a motor lorry hadn't come along."
" Good heavens," said Mrs. Bailey. " And what happened then ? "
" We had to get poor old Feathers back to camp ; and . . ."
" And what? "
" We got him back in the end. It was some evening." Mrs. Bailey took up her knitting and worked for a few minutes.
" I am sorry we couldn't manage your visit to the Peritons in Scotland. It was very nice of them to ask you and you know I should have liked you to have gone, if we had the money. But there it is."
" That's all right, mum."
" Your father and I put our heads together ; but we couldn't see how it could be done. But there is plenty of time. Perhaps they will ask you again next year."
" I don't mind, mum, a bit."
" And we don't see much of you, as it is, do we ?"
" Six weeks, mum."
" And most of that you will be out in the Cormorant or running round the place on your bicycle. So we must make the most of you while we can." Mrs. Bailey gave a little laugh. Denis squeezed her hand. " I don't want to go up to Scotland, mum. I'm just as happy here."
