He grinned; pushed open the gate; began to walk along the path.
The place was interesting and romantic. There were coppices and bushes on each side of the pathway. The grass was thick and uncut. Large, untended rhododendron bushes grew all about the place. It presented an air of dishevelled and romantic atmosphere.
Near the house the path widened to a clearing. Here the grass was kept in some sort of order and a magnolia tree showed some signs of being occasionally tended.
O'Day threw his cigarette away; mounted the few steps to the porch; pulled the old-fashioned bellhandle. He heard the bell clanging on a cracked note somewhere at the back of the house.
Soon he heard footsteps; then the door opened. A woman of about fifty, with greying hair, stood in the doorway. O'Day thought she looked like a family servant. Her face was round and pleasant.
He said: "Good afternoon. My name's O'DayTerence O'Day. I'd like to see Mrs. Deane if she's in. I've brought a message from Colonel Needham."
" Will you wait a moment, sir?" She went away. After a minute she came back. She said: "Mrs. Deane will see you, sir. Will you come this way?"
