She carried herself with a regal air, and she looked her part splendidly from the crown of her Bond Street coiffured head to the tips of her satin shoes.
She glanced half-humorously at her daughter, whose eyes were busily ranging ahead among the crowds of cars and people.
" Not expecting to see Mr. Dain to-night, are you ?" she asked banteringly.

Her mother smiled, with the knowledge of the perfect understanding that existed between those two. They were great friends together, were Mercia and her mother, and such secrets as existed between them were just the little things of life that did not matter in the least.
