CHAPTER SIX

Mr. Reginald Wellard? He's just written such a delightful book. Every one's talking about it.'
The Colonel, who had been hoping, as soon as he saw Sylvia, to get her into a corner and tell her all about India, said `How do' unenthusiastically to Reginald.
`Well,' said Baxter, `what about getting a game started? You'll play, Colonel?'
The Colonel thought that some of the younger ones had better show their paces first.
One of the younger ones, on being suddenly accosted, said modestly that he was ready to play if wanted, but on the other hand, quite ready to sit out if he was not wanted. And he was afraid that he wasn't much good.
Everybody else said at once that he (or she) was absolutely hopeless. '
There are, of course, degrees of hopelessness. Nobody knew whether the other man's hopelessness was more or less hopeless than his own.
`I expect you're very good really,' said Betty to a tall young man in glasses, who had been particularly despairing of himself.
`I'm not really, Mrs. Baxter,' he protested. `At Eastbourne last year-'
Nobody waited to hear what had happened at Eastbourne last year. Anybody who could talk about Eastbourne at all like that was using a different language from theirs when he said he was hopeless. `Hopeless to expect to take a set off Tilden' was what he meant.
`Sylvia, darling,' said Betty, feeling that the time for action had come, `suppose you play with Mr. Palliser -Mrs. Wellard' - a stoutish young man bowed to Sylvia -`and Margery - Mr. Cobb, do you know Mrs. Arkwright?' - the tall young man from Eastbourne
