CHAPTER EIGHTEEN

I
IN the spring they went back to Westaways, leaving Pumps Limited to the attention and necessary action of Nixon's agent.
`Of course he'll take his ten per cent on the book and everything, but you'll find it's worth it,' said Nixon. `Though perhaps Mrs. Wellard won't think so. I've got a wife and a mother and an unmarried sister, and the only thing they ever agree about is the iniquity of that ten per cent.'
`What I want to avoid is the exasperation of reminding myself every week that I've been a fool.'
`Oh, well, he'll do that for you.'
Reginald went off with a letter of introduction, his mind absurdly full of that unmarried sister. For some reason he was convinced that she had a great influence on Nixon's life. Older than he, strict with him when he was a child, disapproving of him when he was grown up; suspicious of the loose world into which he was now thrown. `It is she who has prevented him from being a"good fellow". That's his trouble, that's why he looks wistful sometimes. He knows everybody, everybody calls him Phil, but he has never really been at ease. I'm not a good fellow, but then I've never wanted to be; at least, never thought I could be. He did want to be and he can't, and it's all her fault.'
Funny, he thought, this sudden glimpse into Nixon's family life; and all because of Pump.
He had a more revealing glimpse on the first-night, when.Sylvia and he, having gone into Nixon's box after the Second Act, were introduced to Mother and Sister.
