THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS

last six months than I expected, but I'm not going to run the risk of seeing that thing again. I shall go up to town this afternoon. Get Morton to put my things together, and join me with the car at Brighton on the day after to-morrow. And bring the proofs of those two papers with you. We'll run over them together.'
`How long are you going to be away?'
`I can't say for certain, but be prepared to stay for some time. We've stuck to work pretty closely through the summer, and I for one need a holiday. I'll engage the rooms at Brighton. You 'll find it best to break the journey at Hitchin. I'll wire to you there at the "Crown" to tell you the Brighton address.'
The house he chose at Brighton was in a terrace. He had been there before. It was kept by his old college gyp, a man of discreet silence, who was admirably partnered by an excellent cook. The rooms were on the first floor. The two bedrooms were at the back, and opened out of each other. `Mr. Saunders can have the smaller one, though it is the only one with a fire-place,' he said. `I'll stick to the larger of the two, since it 's got a bath-room adjoining.

`Rotten. Swimming with mud, and a beastly cold wind against us all day. And this is July. Dear Old England!'
`Yes,' said Eustace, `I think we might do worse than leave Old England for a few months.'
They turned in soon after twelve.
`You oughtn't to feel cold, Saunders,' said Eustace, `when you can afford to sport a great fur-lined coat like this. You do yourself very well, all things considered. Look at those gloves, for instance. Who could possibly feel cold when wearing them?'
`They are far too clumsy, though, for driving. Try them on and see'; and he tossed them through the door on to Eustace's
