KIPPS ENTERS SOCIETY

don. You learn to swim in a tank before you go out into the sea. These people here are good enough to learn upon. They're stiff and rather silly, and dreadfully narrow, and not an idea in a dozen of them, but it really doesn't matter at all. You'll soon get Savoir Faire.'
He made to speak again, and found his powers of verbal expression lacking. Instead he blew a sigh.
`You'll get used to it all very soon,' said Helen helpfully....
As he sat meditating over that interview, and over the vistas of London that opened before him, on the little flat and teas and occasions, and the constant presence of Brudderkins and all the bright prospect of his new and better life, and how he would never see Ann any more, the housemaid entered with a little package, a small, square envelope for `Arthur Kipps, Esquire.'
`A young woman left this, Sir,' said the housemaid, a little severely.
`Eh?' said Kipps. `What young woman?' and then suddenly began to understand.
`She looked an ordinary young woman,' said the housemaid coldly.
`Ah!' said Kipps. `That's orlright.'
He waited till the door had closed behind the girl, staring at the envelope in his hand, and then, with a curious feeling of increasing tension, tore it open. As he did so, some quicker sense than sight or touch told him its contents. It was Ann's half-sixpence. And besides, not a word !
Then she must have heard him !
He was standing with the envelope in his hand when Coote became audible without.
Coote appeared in evening dress, a clean and radiant Coote, with large greenish-white gloves, and a particularly large white tie edged with black. 'For a third cousin,' he presently explained, 'Nace, isn't it?' He could see Kipps was pale and disturbed, and put this down to the approaching social trial. `You keep your nerve up, Kipps, my dear chap, and you'll be all right,' said Coote, with a big brotherly glove on Kipps' sleeve.
