CHAPTER THIRTEEN

I
A MR. FILSY NIxoN was to dramatize Bindweed. In fact, he was coming to see Reginald that morning.
`A play? What fun!' said Sylvia, when she was told at breakfast. `But couldn't you do it yourself, darling?'
Having wondered for some weeks whether he oughtn't to try to do it himself, Reginald was naturally annoyed at the suggestion.
`My dear Sylvia, it's a very technical job. Not a thing that anybody can do. There's a lot of craftsmanship and so on wanted. You've got to know the theatre from the inside.'

`Yes, I do see that, darling, but I'm sure you could.'
`Oh, Sylvia, what is the good of saying that?' he burst out; and then added, `Sorry, but-' and got up, cup in hand, as if he were bringing it to be refilled, and said, `Sorry,' and kissed the back of her neck while she refilled it.
`Thank you, darling,' said Sylvia. `Of course I know I don't understand much about these things, but I know it's all right what I'm really trying to say..'
`Go on, darling, say it,' urged a penitent Reginald.
'Well, I said: Isn't there craftsmanship or whatever it is in writing: a book, and you said Yes, and I suppose it didn't follow that because you - you - because I
