MISS CORNELIUS

to good purpose in the evenings. And he was on top of his form as well. Monday morning brought a long letter from his wife.
Dear Old Alfred [she wrote], I'm quite sure you did the right thing in getting away. The clouds-metaphorical-are blowing over. You'll hardly believe me when I tell you what I've done. I've bearded the lion and taken the bull by the horns. In other words, I've seen and spoken with Miss Cornelius. Now don't call me rash or foolish, until you hear how it all came about. Somehow I didn't feel like going to church this morning-the new half-warmed fish curate was preaching-and went for a walk instead down by the river. I saw Miss Cornelius in the distance, sitting on a seat, and looking lonely and withered, and to cut a long story short, I went up to her and told her how sorry I was that all this should have happened. At first I could see that she did not quite know what to make of me, but she soon began, if not to blossom out, at least to burgeon, and was really very kind. She admitted that she was inexcusably rude to you, and thought you would understand that the provocation was great. She says that she is entirely innocent of any attempt at deceit, and if she did throw the pen, that she knew nothing about it. She still believes that the manifestations are the work of some Poltergeist-I don't know if that's the way you spell it-and the utmost she will admit is that there is an element of infection about these things and that, unknown to herself, she may have got infected. I gather that the Parkes were very nice about it all, and that, as her house was practically finished apart from the outside painting, they mutually agreed-is that a right use of the word mutual, you old pedant?-that she should go back there. And there she is: and that's that.

There was a postcript too:
Don't come back until Wednesday, and get all the golf and exercise you can. In fact, you can't very well come back before then, because I have decided to spring-clean the study. It ought to have been done at Easter. I'll take care of your papers.

`Molly at her best,' thought Saxon, with affectionate pride, `clearing up her husband's messes without his leave and making no fuss about it.'
When, after enjoying his days of grace to the full, he returned home on the Wednesday, the events of the previous week appeared strangely remote. It seemed indeed that, whatever
