CHAPTER FIFTEEN

Reginald explained, with that air of apology which somehow seemed natural to the situation.
`There's no rehearsal called for this morning, sir.'
`Oh!' (What had happened?) 'They have been rehearsing here, haven't they?'
`Yes, that's all right, sir, but there's been just a little trouble, as I understand it. Mr. Nixon's up with Mr. Venture now. Shall I tell him you're here, sir?'
`Oh, well, I don't suppose he wants -'
`No harm in letting him know, sir.' He picked up the telephone. So, a little later, Reginald was shaking hands with Mr. Augustus Venture, and was by him being introduced to Lattimer. (`You know Lattimer, of course?')
Though of no more than middle height Mr. Venture was probably the widest man in London. As he wore pale fawn waistcoats, and was fond of putting his thumbs under his braces, he seemed even wider than that. He had a reddish-brown suit, a red carnation in his button-hole, a high collar with a red bow tie, and a cigar in the middle of his round red baby face. Mr. Lattimer was black, and apparently in the Church. Even with this aid, thought Reginald ridiculously, Mr. Venture was much too wide to get into Heaven.
`I'm glad you've come, old man,' said Nixon again. `It concerns you in a sort of way.'
`And four heads are better than three,' murmured the clergyman sardonically.
Mr. Venture said something indistinctly through hi cigar, and nodded to Nixon.
`It's like this,' began Nixon.
Mr. Venture removed his cigar.
`See here,' said Mr. Venture, who had moments of t" wishing you to think he was an American. `See here, Mr. - Sorry. Didn't get your name.'
