CHAPTER SEVEN

`O' course. You and I are educated men, not like Raglan here.'
`When did you last read Pickwick?' asked Raglan.
`Same as I told you, when I was thirteen.'
`Good Heavens, and I thought you took him to bed with you every night.'
`I don't take a book to bed with me,' chuckled Ormsby.
Vulgar beast. Detestable beast. But somehow, likeable beast, thought Reginald.
`And you remember Mr. - What was his name?'
`Whiffers. He'd once had to eat salt butter. Remember that, Wellard? Funny thing, I like salt butter.'
`You remember Mr. Whiffers forty years afterwards?'
Ormsby produced another laugh from the salad, and leant confidentially over to Reginald.
`He doesn't understand, poor old Ambrose doesn't. He's the Greatest Living Expert on Literature, and he can tell you exactly when George Colman the Younger invented mustard, but he doesn't know why Dickens is a great man.' He turned back to Raglan. `That's why, old boy. Because I remember Mr. Whiffers. Forty years afterwards.'
`Rubbish. You remember him because he didn't like salt butter, and you do. If there'd been a man in Wellard's book that didn't like salad, you'd be talking about him when you were ninety-three.'
`Well, damn it, that's what I'm telling you. He's like Dickens.'
Absurd to blush when I'm forty-one, but I'm doing it, thought Reginald. To blush at praise from Ormsbyl
`Well now, let's get to business. How many copies have you sold?'
