THE FINISHED PRODUCT

ago he was a corporal. Now, in the twilight of his life he is a Guardsman; a wicked old Guardsman, still huge, still terrible and still riotous. It is odd to hear the somehow youthful flamboyance of his language tumbling out of that ancient, sunken mouth. And there he sits, invariably to the left of Geordie; both drinking acidulous weak beer. With them, always, sits a little tubby tailor. Rumour has it that this tailor owns thirty houses, and is a man of landed property. Everybody applies to this tailor on questions of real estate. Tradition has grown up about him. If he died with nothing in the bank, the Guards would feel that they had been cheated.
He has a greyhound.
He calls it a greyhound. It is a long dog. He calls it Bartholomew. Between Bartholomew and the enigmatic little man there is a dark understanding. The tailor, though a warrior, I mean an old soldier, is a man of peace : yet one kind of talk with him is fighting talk-talk against the dog Bartholomew. If you cast any aspersion upon the heredity of that dog you have Tubby, the tailor, to contend with. It is a greyhound, a greyhound of greyhounds, compared with which Mick the Miller is as stationary as a bedstead and a mere thing on four legs.
If you give him half a chance he will not fail to tell you the legend of the dog Bartholomew.
" Listen," he says, "look. Just look. Look at that back. Look at that chest. That dog is all lungs. So help me God, if he took a deep breath he'd raise up into the air, so help me God, like a balloon. So help me God. And this dog, this here mortal dog, Bartholomew
