CHAPTER XVIII

think we are being hard on you at times, but we are trying to do our best for you: We want you to grow into a healthy, normal Englishman, which brings me back to where I was before." The clock on the mantelpiece struck nine in thin, effeminate strokes, and Denis compared it with his wristwatch.
" You are certain you have nothing on your mind, Denis ? "
" Nothing. I promise you."
Mr. Bailey seemed still dissatisfied. " You have been so very restless lately. I see you so often doing nothing. You should read more. When I was your age, I had read the whole of Dickens and Scott and Thackeray and most of Shakespeare."
" So has Robin," said Denis.
" Of course, Mr. Wren talked to you about the subject, when you were confirmed, and he reminded you about the sort of dangers and difficulties you might have to face."
" Oh, that, you mean."
" And I sincerely trust you realise the difficulties." Mr. Bailey filled his pipe. He pressed down stray ends of tobacco and patted the palm of his hand. Then he lit a match.
" When I was young, I was told next to nothing about the facts of life. I consider it only right you should know all there is to be known." He lit another match. Denis shifted his weight and said, " Yes, thanks, father ; I think I know."
" I am glad to think that you don't worry much about women, anyhow," said Mr. Bailey, as if he suspected his son of every other worry in the world. " So I won't say any more on the subject. Whenever you have a problem you don't understand, bring it to me. I shall be waiting to help you. If you lead a clean life, where women are concerned, you will never have cause to regret it." He lit another match and picked up an envelope. " And here is a small present to take back with you. Think carefully and spend it on something you really want. I am sorry I cannot make it more. You must remember that other boys have richer parents." He laughed a little.
