CHAPTER XVIII

" I think we'd better go up to the study to give the servants a chance to clear away, eh, Denis ?"
" Right, father." He followed him up the stairs. Mr. Bailey slammed the door and rubbed his hands. " There's only a few things I want to say. By the way, there's nothing you want to ask me, is there ? "
" No, father," said Denis in surprise.
" I just thought there might be. Never mind ; we'll come back to that later. Now about next half, I hope you will work as hard as you can and get this scholarship. I have asked Mr. Wren what your chances are, and he tells me that, if you set your mind on it, there is no reason why you should not succeed. What do you think yourself, Denis ?"
