" And I claim, sweetheart," said Gregg, " that it takes an artist to be that."
" Oh, no, sweetheart! " said Celia. " Not whet. they have you for a husband ! "
The exchange of hosannahs was interrupted by the arrival of Forbes with the tray.
" Will you take yours straight or in a high-ball ? " Gregg inquired of his guest. " Personally I like good whisky straight. I mean mixing it with water spoils the flavor. A' mean whiskv like this, it seems like a crime to mix it with water."
" I'll have mine straight," said Bartlett, who would have preferred a high-ball.
While the drinks were being prepared, he observed his hostess more closely and thought how much more charming she would be if she had used finesse in improving on nature. Her cheeks, her mouth, her eyes, and lashes had been, he guessed, far above the average in beauty before she had begun experimenting with them. And her experiments had been clumsy.

woman to drink. I mean it makes them coarse."
" Well, there's no argument, sweetheart. As I say, I don't carc
