CHAPTER XVIII

" Thanks, awfully, father." Denis took the envelope. His father's hands were quite moist.
" Come on ; your mother will be wondering whatever has happened to us." He led the way down to the drawingroom. Mrs. Bailey was sitting on the sofa, finishing a pair of socks for Denis. She glanced at the clock, when they came in. An hour later Denis went to bed.
The next morning he was on Barford platform, grand and worldly in a lounge suit and bowler hat and praying that his mother would not make a scene when the train started.

" Hullo, everyone. I've got a new story for you." Featherstone threw down his bag, shoved his hands in his pockets and caught sight of Robin coming up the stairs. " Another time," He winked and went off whistling.
" Hullo, everybody," said Robin. " I'm temporary captain of the house. Swinley's in sixth form and doesn't
