CHAPTER SEVEN

Reginald laughed and said that he hadn't the faintest idea.
`You'd better keep an eye on Pump,' said Raglan.
`Now how on earth do I keep an eye on Pump? I live in the country, and come to London about once in three weeks.'
`Pump's a churchwarden,' said Ormsby, `which means that if there's a legal way of swindling you, he won't ask Mother if he may.'
`Does that only apply to churchwardens?'
`It's a good general rule to apply to any man, but churchwardens bring a holy zeal to the business which leaves nothing on the plate. "Whoever thy hand findeth to do, do him with all thy might" is their motto.' `Cheer up, Wellard,' smiled Raglan. `You do get a royalty, I suppose?'
`Oh, yes. Ten per cent.' `That all? Right through?' `I think so.'
`Oh, well, you'll get that. Pump isn't going to prison for ten per cent.'
`We'll keep an eye on him for you,' said Ormsby, getting to work with his tooth-pick. `People are going to buy your book - Raglan and I are seeing to that - and you may as well get the boodle as any blasted unhygienic Pump. Want it?'
Raglan shivered a little. Even after eighteen months. Reginald smiled, and said that he supposed every man wanted money, more or less. '
`He does, my boy. Money and women. And one means the other. Give him those two, and let him sock some other man in the eye now and then, and he's perfectly happy.'
Raglan was watching Reginald, and saw him stiffen.
