CHAPTER EIGHT

there was much to know. She herself had many indecisions, particularly in the matter of dress. Before the evening is over, she will ask Sylvia to tell her frankly whether the apricot velvet suits her. Reginald felt that you couldn't help loving a woman like that. It was as if a man asked you earnestly what you thought of his sense of humour.
`You've signed the petition, of course?' said Hildersham.
`I'm not a very good signer. Which one's that?' `Bringing water down to Little Malling.'
`Oh, that? No, rather not,' said Reginald. `I should
hate it.'
Hildersham stared at him; looked round at the ladies confidently for support, but finding that they were occupied with each other, provided as best he could his own atmosphere of disapproval.
'Oh ! And why?'
`Once you've got water, you'll have bungalows and week-end cottages springing up everywhere. As it is -'
`As it is, in a dry season some of the cottagers have to go a mile for water. As it is, the sanitary conditions -' `No, no,' protested Reginald, `not just before dinner.' `Exactly,' said Hildersham, with an air of sitting down and looking at the jury. `You can't even bear to talk about it. They have to live with it.'
`Well, then, they've signed the petition, I suppose.' `Naturally.'
`Well, that's all right. They want the water and they've asked for it. I don't, and I haven't.'
`My dear fellow, isn't that rather an uncivic attitude to take?'
`It seems rather sensible to me.'
`I thought you prided yourself on being a democrat.'
