CHAPTER SEVEN

`Bindweed,' explained Reginald.
`Bindweed, of course.'
Is there any one more natf than a business man? Never will he lose his ingenuous belief in patter and tricks which would notdeceive a child. I suppose, thought Reginald, business men are so stupid that, even when they are successful, they do not know what has brought them success, and dare not give up any of their stale properties lest, so doing, they discard the magic talisman. For how many years has Mr. Pump waited thus to be prompted by the author? Bindweed; of course!
`Well, Mr. Wellard, you will be glad to hear that Bindweed has been doing very nicely, very nicely indeed.' He caressed his benevolent beard. `It has been a bad season, of course, for publishers, but we have been fortunate. Not a wholly undeserved fortune, Mr. Wellard, if I may say so. We have been building up for many years, and now we are reaping the harvest.' He referred, or pretended to refer, to a slip of paper at his elbow. 'Bindweed, A Maid though Married and The Surprising Honeymoon have been our most notable successes, although The Life Class has run them close. In fact, really our only disappointment has been An Island Bride. It has done well, of course, but not quite what I expected.'
`Oh, yes.' No good leaving it at that. `Er - just how many copies of Bindweed have you sold?'
'Bindweed? I haven't got the actual figures here. You will have a full statement, of course, when the time comes, and I think you will be surprised to find how many we have soid. It isn't always easy to get a new book before the public. I could get you the figures, of course, if you care to wait, but-'
Reginald, or, at least, a voice from his chair, hastened to say that it didn't really matter.
