CHAPTER THE FOURTH
The Bicycle Manufacturer

§ 1
So Kipps embarked upon his engagement, steeled himself to the high enterprise of marrying above his breeding. The next morning found him dressing with a certain quiet severity of movement, and it seemed to his landlady's housemaid that he was unusually dignified at breakfast. He meditated profoundly over his kipper and his kidney and bacon. He was going to New Romney to tell the old people what had happened and where he stood. And the love of Helen had also given him courage to do what Buggins had once suggested to him as a thing he would do were he in Kipps' place, and that was to hire a motor-car for the afternoon. He had an early cold lunch, and then, with an air of quiet resolution, assumed a cap and coat he had purchased to this end, and, thus equiped, strolled round, blowing slightly, to the motor shop. The transaction was unexpectedly easy, and within the hour, Kipps, spectacled and wrapped about, was tootling through Dymchurch.
They came to a stop smartly and neatly outside the little toy-shop. `Make that thing 'oot a bit, will you?' said Kipps. `Yes. That's it.' 'Whup,' said the motor-car. `4Vhurrup.' Both his aunt and uncle came out on the pavernent. `Why, it's Artie!' cried his aunt; and Kipps had a moment of triumph.
He descended to hand-claspings, removed wraps and spectacles, and the motor-driver retired to take `an hour off.' Old Kipps surveyed the machinery and disconcerted Kipps for a moment by asking him, in a knowing tone, what they asked him for a thing like that. The two men stood inspecting the machine and impressing the neighhours for a time, and then they strolled through the shop into the little parlour for a drink.
`They ain't settled,' old Kipps had said at the neighbours. `They ain't got no further than experiments. There's a bit of take-in about each. You take my advice
