CHAPTER ELEVEN

Parks goes wonderingly.
`Think yourself pretty?'
Parks blushes and says, `No, madam.'
`You mean Yes, madam.'
`Yes, madam,' says Parks, looking quite pretty now in her confusion.
`But no brains.'
`No, madam.'
`And brains last longer.'
`Yes, madam.'
Parks having heard in the kitchen that the visitor was `a lovely one', wonders if all this about brains refers to Mrs. Wellard or to herself. Anyhow, who wants silly old brains?
`Would you have said that I was good-looking as a girl?'
`Oh yes, madam,' says Parks eagerly.
`Well; you would have been wrong. I had a complexion. Nowadays you can buy them, but in my day you had to grow them. Much more difficult. A complexion, and a figure; which really meant a figure in those days, and not just an absence. That and brains. Brains, Parks. Mrs. Wellard, poor dear, is just beautiful - but, my God, how beautiful. All right, now you can send up Stoker.'
After which she goes to Buxton, and we lose her.

`No, but we shan't feel so far away from Westaways.
