CHAPTER THIRTEEN

`Not yet.' And he added a little resentfully, `I've been pretty busy lately, Wilmer.!
'Of course. Well, you read it. There's a dam good play there. All the time I was reading it, I was saying "Phil could get a dam good play out of this".' He gave his pleasantly deprecating laugh and said, `Nearly had a shot at it myself, but of course you'd do it a million times better. Just your line.'
`Who's the author?'
`What's that fellow's name? You know. I've got it here somewhere, I think.' His eyes wandered vaguely round his dressing-table, and went back to the mirror, and he gave another touch to his cheek-bones as he said, `Oh, no, I took it home. But you get hold of the book, and then get hold of the fellow and fix it up, and then I'll -' He held out his hand and said suddenly, `I'm on in two minutes. Bindweed. Don't forget. A hell of a play there, and you're the one man in England to do it. So long, Phil, old man.'
So now Reginald sat in his room at Haywaxd's Grove, and waited for Mr. Filby Nixon to call upon him. How wise of them to have come up to London. One couldn't sit in one's office at Westaways and expect famous dramatists to come down in search of one. But in London how easy all this was; how natural. Business in the morning fixing up dramatic rights, or something; a picturegallery, perhaps, in the afternoon, nodding to Coral Bell and other friends; dinner and a play; and then supper at the Oxmsbys or somewhere. How full life was in London. Never a moment to oneself.
Sylvia seemed to be busy too. Having people to lunch ... and going out to lunch ... and going out to tea.
`Mr. Filby Nixon.'
