CHAPTER SEVENTEEN

I
REGINALD lay awake in his dressing-room, going over it in his mind. He had been perfectly right all through. Ormsby rva,r that sort of man; nobody could want his wife to be seen about with that sort of man; nobody could help being annoyed if his wife, without consulting him, had gone out at night with that sort of man. He had been perfectly right all through. (How nice to be perfectly right.)
Just consider a moment. Everybody in London knew Ormsby by sight. Well, not quite everybody, but everybody in the stalls at the first-night of a musical show. Nobody knew Sylvia. To the stalls she would just be an astoundingly beautiful young woman; unknown; not, therefore, in what was called Society; not before seen at a first-night; some new arrival to the stage, presumably then, which absorbed and discharged so many beautiful young women. Presumably then, also, of the musicalcomedy stage. With Ormsby ! At Veno's first-night ! What would they think?
Did it matter what they thought, since, thinking this, they could not possibly know Sylvia? Did he mind what people, strangers, said about him? 'Bindweed? Oh, that's that fellow Wellard. You've heard about Wellard, haven't you?' And then some idiotic lie, or disgusting scandal. How many such lies, such scandals, he had heard at the club about his acquaintances. Did one mind if people who didn't know you thought you were this, that or the other? No. But one's wife...
If it comes to that, thought Reginald suddenly, all that I know about Ormsby is just hearsay. I don't know
