St. James's Square is not a very brilliantly lit neighbourhood. At ten o'clock at night it is even gloomy. Solemn old Victorian houses raise their sombre bulk in the night and seem to frown across the square. They are deceptive, these great houses, dull and ugly without, but perfectly appointed within. An air of quiet luxury pervades them, and the note they strike is exquisitely old English.
