CHAPTER EIGHT

`I don't compare anybody's services with anybody else's. I don't even know whether Tyler provided something which the country wanted, he was of service to the country. And if the country is spending five millions a day on things which it wants, it is obvious that a good many people will be richer than they were before.'
`Well, I prefer the company of those who aren't. Unless they've definitely done something to deserve it.'
`Then have another drink, in case it's your last.' Reginald pushed the decanter towards him. `I am the supreme example of the war profiteer.'
`You? Rubbishl' said Hildersham, feeling a moment of uneasiness.
`On the contrary. I was existing miserably in a bank when war broke out. I had nothing but that to go back to afterwards. But a distant cousin, the son of a very rich woman, was killed in the last week of the war; his mother slowly died of it, and, dying, left her money to her only surviving relation, whom she had seen once when he was a child. Myself. Here I am. And, but for the war, here I should not be.'
Hildersham, greatly relieved, gave a suggestion of a laugh and said, `Oh, that 1' Curious how little one knew of other people. Somehow Wellard had given him the idea of a man accustomed to money. The slightest note of condescension crept into his voice.
`Seriously, though, I think it would be as well if Mrs. Wellard didn't call on Monks Cross. I understand that his is a pretty bad case. Please yourself, of course, but as you say you don't call much anyhow, perhaps it is just as well. How's the book?'
`Going strong.'
`Good.'

CHAPTER EIGHT

`Shall we -?'
`Right.'
They got up slowly.
`I met a fellow the other day who was talking about it. He was very much impressed when I told him you were a neighbour of ours.'
`Oh?' (What's the answer?) `Got another on the stocks?'
`No ... Let's go out, shall we? I think I saw them.' `Right ... Thanks ... Fifty thousand, didn't I see you'd sold?'
`About that.'
`That's considered pretty good, isn't it?' `I think so.'
`Yes, I told him you were a friend of ours and he was quite interested ... Ah, there they are.'
