DROMENON

outline of what the West front might have been intended to be, then here was the northwest gable.
" Now, follow the design, right, carefully." And, to make me comply, I felt a thumb and finger press gently against the base of my skull, with just that point of pressure which the dentist's headrest applies.
The surprise at being so handled and the queer association with dental submission, I think, accounted for my yielding. I own I am not fond of being touched by strangers. There may, too, have been something in the contact that prevented what would otherwise have been my normal reaction. Whatever the reason, I did not shrug myself free and so found, under this delicate but compelling guidance, my head being gently swung up and down, while my neck was swiveled so that my eye might follow the etched design.
When I reached the end of the top of the design, my eye was led, in the same way, down its right side, across the base, up the left side, and then, once again, but on a lower tier of lines, across the front. My compulsory director had ceased to talk, of that I was aware faintly, but only faintly, because I was much more aware of something positive but, in spite of that, far harder to define, even to myself. The nearest I can get to it is to say that I was becoming giddy. And yet the word giddiness is very far from le mot juste for my state of mind. For, firstly, I felt uncommonly firm-the very opposite of vertigo. I felt the vibrant firmness of sure momentum which one feels in a yacht, when it goes cleanly over onto a full tack and has plenty of "way," or the firmness one experiences in large high-powered cars
