UNWINDING

Besides his spiders and his library, the vicarage is large enough to give shelter to Mrs. Thorneycroft and her three daughters, charming girls in spite of the atmosphere of mixed hockey and parish small talk in which they.live.
Last year my customary visit to Willeston coincided with Millicent's second birthday parry. By that I do not mean that Millicent, in clerical parlance, was standing upon the threshold of her second year, for she was fifteen, and very proud of the fact.
But it was her overflow party, when her grown-up friends were called in to eat of the fragments that remained.
The arrangement was excellent, for the guests on the first occasion, with girlish indiscretion, devoured everything that was indigestible, leaving to their elders on the following day a safe if uninteresting repast.
On this occasion the party consisted entirely of men. There was Dr. Philpots, an old-fashioned homoeopath; Mr. Greatorex, who farmed a couple of thousand acres Fenchurch way, and who drove tandem to the delight of all Fenchurch children; and Captain Dawson.
These three were old friends and had come to Millicent's second birthday parry for years in succession. It was this that made her two sisters object to the proposal to ask Mr. Cholmondley of Oldbarnhouse.
As Madge said, Mr. Cholmondley was a newcomer. He never came to church; their father and he had never met.
According to Laura, the upholder of propriety, who went with her mother to pay calls, he was a mere nobody, in spite of his aristocratic name. She, for one, thought him uneducated, but as it was not her birthday party, she forbore to interfere.
And so Millicent, actuated a little by pity for the lonely gentleman, and largely by obstinacy, invited Mr. Cholmondley.
At the last moment she almost hoped he would refuse, but to her own and every one else's surprise, he accepted, and his present won her heart at once.
The guests assembled late in the afternoon, and as the evening was warm we were on the lawn playing croquet until within
