Saint's Progress

know? We can get her away from London, and later on, we must manage somehow. If he does hear, we must make him feel that Nollie was "doing her bit".'
Gratian withdrew her hand. `Don't!' she said in a muffled voice.
George Laird turned and looked at her. He was greatly upset himself, realizing perhaps more deeply than his young wife the violence of this disaster; he was quite capable, too, of feeling how deeply she was stirred and hurt; but, a born pragmatist, confronting life always in the experimental spirit, he was impatient of the `How awfull' attitude. And this streak of her father's ascetic traditionalism in Gratian always roused in him a wish to break it up. If she had not been his wife he would have admitted at once that he might just as well try and alter the boneformation of her head, as break down such a fundamental trait of character, but, being his wife, he naturally considered alteration as possible as putting a new staircase in a house, or throwing two rooms into one. And, taking her in his arms, he said: `I know; but it'll all come right, if we put a good face on it. Shall I talk to Nollie?'
Gratian assented, from the desire to be able to say to her father: `George is seeing her!' and so stay the need for a discussion. But the whole thing seemed to her more and more a calamity which nothing could lessen or smooth away.
George Laird had plenty of cool courage, invaluable in men who have to inflict as well as to alleviate pain, but he did not like his mission `a little bit' as he would have said; and he proposed a walk because he dreaded a scene. Noel accepted for the same reason. She liked George, and with the disinterested detachment of a sister-in-law, and the shrewdness of extreme youth, knew him perhaps better than did his wife. She was sure, at all events, of being neither condemned nor sympathized with.
