Saint's Progress

Pierson, feeling that he was in their way, tried to hide himself behind his paper; when he looked again, the soldier had taken off his tunic and cap and was leaning out of the window. The woman, on the seat's edge, sniffing and wiping her face, met his glance with resentful eyes, then, getting up, she pulled the man's sleeve.
`Sit dahn; don't 'ang out o' there.'
The soldier flung himself back on the seat and looked at Pierson.
`The wife an' me's 'ad a bit of a row,' he said companionably. `Gits on me nerves; I'm not used to it. She was in a raid, and 'er nerves are all gone funny; ain't they, old girl? Makes me feel me 'ead. I've been wounded there, you know; can't stand much now. I might do somethin' if she was to go on like this for long.'
Pierson looked at the woman, but her eyes still met his resentfully. The soldier held out a packet of cigarettes. `Take one 1' he said. Pierson took one and, feeling that the soldier wanted him to speak, murmured: `We all have these troubles with those we're fond of; the fonder we are of people, the more we feel them, don't we? I had one with my daughter last night.'
`Ah!' said the soldier; `that's right. The wife and me'll make it up. 'Ere, come orf it, old girl.'
From behind his paper he soon became conscious of the sounds of reconciliation-reproaches because someone had been offered a drink, kisses mixed with mild slappings, and abuse. When they got out at Bristol the soldier shook his hand warmly, but the woman still gave him her resentful stare, and he thought dreamily: `The warl How it affects everyone!' His carriage was invaded by a swarm of soldiers, and the rest of the journey was passed in making himself small. When at last he reached home, Gratian met him in the hall.
`Just the same. The doctor says we shall know in a few
