PART II - CHAPTER III
THE IRONY OF INSPIRED MOMENTS

`Oh, I don't know-only I feel as if I could talk straight off without arranging-like birds, without knowing what note is coming next.'
When I was going he said:
`Here, leave me that book-it'll keep me like this-I mean I'm not the same as I was yesterday, and that book 'll keep me like it. Perhaps it 's a bilious bout-I do sometimes have one, if something very extraordinary happens. When it's getting dark, then !'

Lettie had not arrived when I went home. I put the violets in a little vase on the table. I remembered he had wanted her to see the drawings-it was perhaps as well he had kept them.
She came about six o'clock-in the motor car with Marie. But the latter did not descend. I went out to assist with the parcels. Lettie had already begun to buy things; the wedding was fixed for July.
The room was soon over-covered with stuffs: table linen, underclothing, pieces of silken stuff and lace stuff, patterns for carpets and curtains, a whole gleaming glowing array. Lettie was very delighted. She could hardly wait to take off her hat, but went round cutting the string of her parcels, opening them, talking all the time to my mother.
`Look, little woman. I've got a ready-made underskirt-isn't it lovely? Listen!' and she ruffled it through her hands. 'Shan't I sound splendid! Frou-frou ! But it is a charming shade, isn't it, and not a bit bulky or clumsy anywhere?' She put the band of the skirt against her waist, and put forward her foot, and looked down, saying: `It's just the right length, isn't it, little woman?-and they said I was tall-it was a wonder. Don't you wish it were yours, little?-oh, you won't confess it. Yes, you like to be as fine as anybody-that 's why I bought you this piece of silk-isn't it sweet, though?-you needn't say there's too much lavender in it, there is not. Now!' She pleated it up and held it against my mother's chin. 'It suits you beautifully-doesn't it? Don't you like it, sweet? You don't seem to like it a bit, and I'm sure it suits youmakes you look ever so young. I wish you wouldn't be so old-fashioned in your notions. You do like it, don't you?'
