CHAPTER XXII

" Yes, only got back this afternoon. Do you mind if I sit on it? "
" By all means, sir. Nice little machine that. Only had her in yesterday. The man wants to sell it quickly ; but the engine is O.K."
" What does he want for it ?" said Denis.
" 40 pounds, I believe ; but he might take an offer. It's just been decarbonised."
" Tyres ? ",
" O.K."
" Spare tools ? "
" Everything O.K. It's a bargain." Denis braced his knees against the rubber pads on the petrol tank and worked the gas and air levers. " I shouldn't be surprised if I had her," he remarked.
" Yes, she's a nice little bus," said Handsome. Denis got off reluctantly. " I'll come in again and see you," he said. He looked back once more. Yes, it had decent broad footrests, not like Dick's short bars, that were always getting bent up or down. He got on his bicycle and rode back to supper.
The next morning was cold and bright. Denis jumped up and looked out of the window. Neap tides were running and the tops of the rushes, unwashed by the sea, were white with frost. The river flowed black and deep-looking among the reed-beds. There would be snipe in the marshes, thought Denis, if the frost held. He had a quick bath and turned on the cold. " Bath ready, father."
" Right, thanks," came the reply. He put on his old tweed knickerbockers and coat and went downstairs. Mrs. Bailey was in the dining-room, standing by the window. He went up and kissed her.
" There's a letter for you on your plate," she said. Denis opened it.

" DEAR DENIS,-Peter tells me that I ought to write a proper letter to invite you to stay with us in London on the 7th of January. We are very much looking forward
