CHAPTER TWO

to the Prince of Wales as, hat in hand, he conducted his Royal Highness past the bookstall. `There, sir; turning over the pages of his book Bindweed.'
`Wellard!' roared a porter to the deaf old lady whose parrot he was carrying. `Author of Bindweed! That's 'im there. 'Aving a read of it.'
`So that's what he looks like!' shrieked one surprised schoolgirl to another. `So that's Wellard!'
And, suddenly again, the whole station shouted `Wellard!' together, and every finger pointed at him...
Or didn't it?
Nervously, eyes on ground, Reginald switched round his head. Nervously he took his eyes up his neighbour from her feet to her knees (ugly knees), from her knees to her waist, from her waist to her neck, to her eyes... The eyes took no notice of him. They were reading a copy of the Sketch, suspended above him. Other eyes were equally indifferent. Nobody was looking at him. Nobody was talking about him. Nobody had heard of him. He was on a desert island, with his book Bindweed which nobody but himself had read, nor would read ever.
But that was equally absurd. Mr. Pump had announced a Third Large Impression. Was Mr. Pump a liar? Impossible.
The bookstall clerk spared him a moment.
`Reading very well, that book, sir,' he says, slapping down elevenpence at somebody on his right.
`Really?' says Reginald, trying to hide his excitement.
`Sclling well, eh?'
'Quite a demand for it ... And four's six,' he adds, slapping down fourpence on his left.
`Ah!' says Reginald.
Now then, he says to himself, if I turn it down after.
