CHAPTER EIGHT

wanted her, I mean wanted to marry her, and Richard Penross, that was his name, came in just as one man was saying - well really, dear, he was betting, well, like they do in Shakespeare sometimes, that he would spend the night with her. Of course nobody knew about Richard and her-well, naturally, he wouldn't have said it if he had known, and then Richard came in - well, you can imagine !'
`Grace, how awful !'
`It's perfectly true, dear. My mother told me. After I was married, of course. The other man wasn't hurt, but he had to stay abroad. That was what was so unfair about duels, the wrong man got killed - I'm glad they've stopped them.'
Sylvia was still reading that tiny copper-plate writing :
`Agatha - Richard. Till death.'
`Grace, was it true?' she asked; in a whisper, lest the
world should hear.
`About being - that sort of woman?'
Sylvia nodded, but at the ring.
`Oh, no, dear!' said Grace, shocked at the suggestion. Then, after an interval for thought, `Well, of course, she was only a great-great-aunt. I mean, it was her brother who - and in those days, I suppose - Well, they're bad enough now from all accounts. Thank you, dear.' Sylvia had handed back the ring. `I'd never thought of that. Perhaps she was.'
`Did you give me -'
`I gave you yours. It's lovely.'
`Oh, yes.' Sylvia looked at it happily, turning it this way and that on her finger.
`It's very difficult, all that, isn't it?' Grace went on. `You're lucky, you haven't any daughters. Sylvia, did your mother tell you anything?'
