size in all directions. We all worked hard to straighten out the creases with John Bottle's travelling iron, while Benskin rubbed hard at the lapels to remove the grease.
`I must have been a dirty little devil at table,' he reflected.

By lowering the braces as far as he dared the trousers could be made to cover the upper part of his ankles; the braces themselves, which were red and yellow, only remained invisible behind the lapels of the coat when he remembered not to breathe too deeply. The sleeves came as far as the mid-forearm, and the top buttons of the trousers had to be reinforced with safety-pins. But it was the shirt that presented an apparently insoluble difficulty. It was tight, and the buttonholes were worn : even the shallowest of respirations caused the studs to pop out and expose a broad strip of hairy, pink, sweaty chest.

Even strips of sticking-plaster inside the stiff front were not strong enough to withstand the pressure of his inhalations. For half an hour we worked hard at the infuriating gap while the shirt-front became limp under our fingers.
For God's sake!' Benskin exclaimed angrily. `Isn't there anything we can do about it? Look at the time ! If I'm not there in twenty minutes I've had it. Surely one of you fellows has got a stiff shirt to lend me?'
