thing like a firm offer, and she had to be content with an occasional `let' to a`thoroughly satisfactory' tenant.
One may be allowed a glimpse of her in bed before she goes to Buxton. She is wearing her `boudoir cap' and the grey shawl, the one sent from Shetland by a grandson who had gone there to fish. `Let us hope,' said Mrs. Carstairs, as her maid unpacked the parcel in front of her, `that his taste in fish is better. I shall wear it when breakfasting, Parks, on the understanding that you do not express admiration for it. Nobody else is to see me in it.' Parks expressing immediate admiration of its warmth, Mrs. Carstairs added, `By the way, when is Mr. Harold's birthday? Tuesday? Strange!'
However, now she is in bed, breakfasting and opening her letters, while Parks stands by.
`A Mr. Wellard,' she is saying. `Apparently he has written a book called Bindweed. I must have read it; because I read every book which comes out, and I don't remember a word of it, so it can't have been a good one. Apart from writing a bad book, his references seem satisfactory.'
`I remember the gentleman coming,' says Parks. `He looked a very nice gentleman.'
Mrs. Carstairs raises her eyebrows, and says, 'You will be with me in Buxton.'
`Yes, madam,' says Parks meekly.

`She didn't come the first time, madam, and the second time was my afternoon out.'
`Ah! Go and look at yourself in the glass, Parks. No, the long one.'
