THE WALSHINGHAMS

placed the two before him, opened the latter with a sigh, and flattened it under his hand.

'Having thus acquired possession of an idea, the little ship should not be abruptly launched into deep waters,but should be first permitted to glide gently and smoothly into the shallows; that is to say, the conversation should not be commenced by broadly and roundly stating a fact, or didactically expressing an opinion, as the subject would be thus virtually or summarily disposed of, or perhaps be met with a "Really" or "Indeed" or some equally brief monosyllabic reply. If an opposite opinion were held by the person to whom the remark were addressed, he might not, if a stranger, care to express it in the form of a direct contradiction or actual dissent. To glide imperceptibly into conversation is the object to be attained '

§ 4
When Kipps made his call on the Walshinghams, it all happened so differently from the Manners and Rules prescription ('Paying Calls') that he was quite lost from the very outset. Instead of the footman or maidservant proper in these cases, Miss Walshingham opened the door to him herself. `I'm so glad you've come,' she said, with one of her rare smiles.
She stood aside for him to enter the rather narrow passage.

She closed the door and led the way to a little drawingroom, which impressed Kipps as being smaller and less emphatically coloured than that of the Cootes, and in which, at first, only a copper bowl of white poppies upon the brown tablecloth caught his particular attention
`You won't think it unconventional to come in, Mr. Kipps, will you?' she remarked. `Mother is out.' ,
`I don't mind,' he said, smiling amiably' `if you don't.'
She walked round the table and stood regarding him across it, with that same look between speculative curiosity
