Virtcria's mother, Sophie's only child, had been difficult and altogether unsatisfactory. For • one thing—Sophie had to admit it— her daughter's babyhood had conflicted with the years of her Greatest successes; she had been (ravel- ing.a good half of the lime. Then, too,' Mary van Eyck hod been plain and one of. those women wilh • a talent for obscurity. She could scarcely have married anyone [ more obscure lhan Ihc colorless teacher, Frank Jenkins, wilh whom ; she had run away at a moment • when Sophie WPS having enough • trouble as it was with Basil Vasi. lov threatening to kill himself over her. Victoria's girlhood, on the other v hand, had coincided with Sophie'b 'happy retirement as Mrs. Max Bernheim, a period when both psssion and fame had ceased to claim her and she could devote love anrl attention to the child Even to herself Sophie had to admit that Vicky was picturesque where Mary had bc»n namby '. pamby. Vicky was exquisite am tlie darling of her grandmother'; i car 1. Nevertheless, Sophie had lot yd entered into an adult vc- alionship with the givl. Not only vns Vicky very young, she was juito without the spark of artistic 'enius which would have necesai- aled some recognition other than hat of an indulgent grandparent a sweet orphaned child more han TiQ years her junior. * c * FT was nearly 10 o'clock the next morning before Vicky knocked at the door of her grandmother'. 1 ; jctlroom, Sophie, with her hair n two long while braids that loll ivcr the shoulders of a purple ntin robe, was lying cm the chaise ongue under the windows. Vicky •'nine in apologizing /or being late. Sophie patlotl the chaise beside icr. "Ccme nnd sit down, darling, expect you were out late." "Yes, I was, rather„ 1 went for moonlight sail with some people ! met nt the Kcd Cross." This was rue enough; Vicky had. been se\v- ng for war orphans nt the lied Cross in the villcige and had, made Ihc acquaintance of n lew summer .jcople. "I'm sure they're very nice, clear," Sophie said vaguely. "Yes, Granny." "I want to tell you, my rtenr, .hot our little family i;; very short- .y to be increased by one. You rinvc probably heard oft on of otifrcy Mansbridge, the actor. I have—known him fov many years. Ho was the greatest leading man I ever had. You remember his picture hnng in the salon at Antibes. as Romeo." Vicky remained silent. "You do remember, tlon*t you darling?" r "Ycs, Granny," Victoria continued to sit for so long in an attitude her grandmother considered apathelic Hi a Sophie grew worried. "IXirrm child! We must all seem so terribly old lo you! I forget sometimes. .This summer will be clul for you, won't it, with none o Coiling ready to return homo, ihc colorful Noah said, "The city is fine nnd n)t that, but there arc loo many people with cly'teftlion's distemper." Tttijl's his word for a our own Jriomts near you? You \ ;iust ]>olLevo that 1 need you. We I iced you. 1 ' ' ' ^ "OC course, Gvandmolhov," said r icky dutifully. "And I can al- / vays make ntnv friends." - • -* "Have you made a conquest here Trendy?" Sophie inquired curious- y. "Or is it none o£ my grand- ' nothcrly business?" £ "Of course it's your business!" > ficky paused for a fraction, of a ] ninulc. "lie HVP-S next door," she aid. "Or rather, his family docs. Te's hern on two weeks' leave." "Then we must liave him over fieri, my clear." "The funny thing Is ho doesn't vant ID come much until his inoth- r has called on you, and all that." "How refreshing!" said Sophie. "His name is Bagot. Sailer lagot the Third." ,^ : r _ .{ 'T'O Victoria 1 :; intense' astonishment, Mad,ime van Eyck sat t upright at mention of Sally's HC and gripped her grand- lauglilcr's arms. "Vicky! Bngol, did you say?" "Yes," said Vicky. "His family comes from. Huston, bxit they've living here in the summer lor ayes." Sophie leaned bade again, sink- ng slowly into the satin cushions. l l used to know n Bagot once, 1 ' she murmured. "Oh, a long, long ,ime ago—•" "H call y, Granny?" Victoria iuckcd her legs under her and curled up on the chaise like a youny animal. "Well, it your I3agot was your sort of generation might even have been Sally's ?r and father. That would have been the original Snllcr Bagot, wouldn't it? My Salty is Sailer Bngot the Third." •• "No," Sophie said musingly, "the Bnfiot I knew wasn't called Sailer- There arc lots oE them around this part of ihc \vorld, yni know. Strange—1 hadn't thought of that name in many, many years." ] t was true .she had not, and yet, i£ the name of Calais could he graven on the heart oC Mary of England, Ihc name Bngot could certainly he found in n comparable position on that organ ot Sophie van Eyck.
