CHAPTER XIX

The house smelt of venison. From the kitchen the strong odour crept along twisting passages and spread upwards to the boys' side. For the last ten days there had been venison for dinner. Hot haunch of venison with red currant jelly was better than tough mutton or shepherd's pie. "Good," said Wren, sniffing the air like a stag itself scenting the stalker. " Nothing like a haunch of venison." His words were prophetic. After a week of roast and cold and hashed and roast again, the atmosphere in the dining-room was quite incomparable. A few haunches still hung in the kitchen, with labels attached, " H. Wren, Esq.," and a highland postmark ; and the cook held her breath as she opened the oven. The man looked sideways out of the steam, and he rushed the dish to the dining-room. Miss Fuller talked loudly to her neighbours to drown adverse comments, and Mr. Wren seized his knife and fork expectantly.
The new library had settled down. Denis bought four records and a box of needles. Peter suggested that the Sketch should be added to the library papers, Punch, the Bystander, the Tatter, The Times, Daily Mail and Daily Mirror. Swinley asked if anyone objected to the library subscription being raised, and no one objected. The last library had been poor and destructive. Freeman had written his private letters on foolscap or plain paper and Taunton had kicked holes in the wicker armchairs in his spare time. All the house canes were either burnt or frayed at the end. A few days later a supply of new canes lay on the slab in the passage. Lower boys picked them up and made playful cuts at each other. A messenger returned and removed a second bundle he had left by mistake. They were stiff and knobbly,
