PART I - CHAPTER VII
LETTIE PULLS DOWN THE SMALL GOLD GRAPES

quietly, about nothing-blissful merely in the soimd of our voices, a murmured, soothing sound-a grateful, dispassionate love trio.
At last George rose, put down his book-looked at his father-and went out.
In the barn there was a sound of the pulper crunching the turnips. The crisp strips of turnip sprinkled quietly down on to a heap of gold which grew beneath the pulper. The smell of pulped turnips, keen and sweet, brings back to me the feeling of many winter nights, when frozen hoof-prints crunch in the yard, and Orion is in the south; when a friendship was at its mystical best.
'Pulping on Sunday!' I exclaimed.
`Father didn't do it yesterday; it 's his work; and I didn't notice it. You know-father often forgets-he doesn't like to have to work in the afternoon, now.'
The cattle stirred in their stalls ; the chains rattled round the posts ; a cow coughed noisily. When George had finished pulping, and it was quiet enough for talk, just as he was spreading the first layers of chop and turnip and meal-in ran Emily, with her hair in silken, twining confusion, her eyes glowing-to bid us go in to tea before the milking was begun. It was the custom to milk before tea on Sunday-but George abandoned it without demur-his father willed it so, and his father was master, not to be questioned on farm matters, however one disagreed.
The last day in October had been dreary enoubh ; the night could not come too early. We had tea by lamplight, merrily, with the father radiating comfort as the lamp shone yellow light. Sunday tea was imperfect without a visitor; with me, they always declared, it was perfect. I'.oved to hear them say so. I smiled, rejoicing quietly into my teacup when the father said:
It seems proper to have Cyril here at Sunday tea, t seems natural.'
He was most loath to break the delightful bond of the lamplit tea-table; he looked up with a half-appealing glance when George at last pushed back his chair and said he supposed he 'd better make a start.
`Ay, said the father in a mild, conciliatory tone, `I'll be out in a minute.'
