MRS. ORMEROD

reluctant hospitality, and third-class railway fares. His wife is more or less crippled with rheumatoid arthritis, and her chief trouble is that she doubts if they are justified in having a joint income of five hundred a year with permission to live in a dilapidated house that is far too big for them and would give any one else the fidgets.
Two more helpless, lovable babes you never saw.

(He is constitutionally incapable of managing a car.) So the carrier drove me from the station in his Ford along twisting lanes. Whenever the road forked we took the worst turning, and by the time he had deposited me at the foot of the hollow in which Viner's Croft is tucked away I was thinking of your impassable seas of mud.
The door was opened by an unpleasant-looking little boy. He gazed at me through his spectacles with half-open mouth -I could have boxed his ears-and then saying that he would
