PART III - CHAPTER IV
DOMESTIC LIFE AT THE 'RAM'

Teenie, the sullen, black-browed servant-girl, came in carrying the other baby, and Meg called from the scullery to ask her if the child were asleep. Meg was evidently yin a bustle and a flurry, a most uncomfortable state.
`No,' replied Teenie, `he's not for sleep this day.'
'Mend the fire and see to the oven, and then put him his frock on,' replied Meg, testily. Teenie set the blackhaired baby in the second cradle. Immediately he began to cry, or rather to shout his remonstrance. George went across to him and picked up a white furry rabbit, which he held before the child:
'Here, look at bun-bun ! Have your nice rabbit ! Hark at it squeaking!'
The baby listened for a moment, then, deciding that this was only a put-off, began to cry again. George threw down the rabbit and took the baby, swearing inwardly. He dandled the child on his knee.

But the baby knew quite well what was the father's feeling towards him, and he continued to cry.
`Hurry up, Teenie!' said George as the maid rattled the coal on the fire. Emily was walking about hushing her charge, and smiling at me, so that I had a peculiar pleasure in gathering for myself the honey of endearment which she shed on the lips of the baby. George handed over his child to the maid, and said to me with patient sarcasm:
'Will you come in the garden?'
I rose and followed him, across the sunny flagged yard, along the path between the bushes. He lit his pipe and sauntered along as a man on his own estate does, feeling as if he were untrammelled by laws or conventions.
'You know,' he said, `she 's a damn rotten manager.'
I laughed, and remarked how full of plums the trees were.
`Yes!' he replied heedlessly-'you know she ought to have sent the girl out with the kids this afternoon, and have got dressed directly. But no, she must sit gossiping with Emily all the time they were asleep, and then as soon as they wake up she begins to make cake-' '
