Heagan carried a large parcel, done up in brown wrapping paper, under hu arm. Northcotl was still gray and formidable looking. He ga?.ed at them from behind his gold- rimmed glasses. hi$ eyes inscrutable. "1 understand that I'm to see something very fine this morning," he said. "Vou certainly are," replied Ede boldly, as Reagan unwrapped Lhe package. There was practically DO expression on Northcott's fa c e as he looked al every layout, read every word of every piece ol copy. When he finished he stared at Ede and Reagan so long that Ede grew apprehensive. To cover her nervousness she lit a cigaret and tried to make her eyes as inscrutable as Northcott's. At last Northcott spoke. "These," he said, pointing at the advertisements, "confirm an opinion that.I've had (or some time.' "Yes?" Ede was afraid that she babbled the word. "Which is," Northcott said dispassionately, "that Frey & Company is the best advertising agency in New York." With difficulty Ede restrained an impulse lo shout. She was conscious al Reagan'i big body relaxing in the chair beside her. "Does that mean, Mr. North—U," the liked, "that jrou like this campaign?" He looked straight at her. "I'll buy it." he said, "Just u U stands." OACK at th# agency they found a pale and haggard Jeffrey. Ede had expected him to remain at home and make good her spurious explanation to Reagan, lhat Jcfl had had a wretched attack of indigestion in the night. Now. however, here was Jeff, a fihost of himself, with dark circles under, his eyes and his fingers twitching. But if Reagan guessed the truth, he gave no sign. "It's in the bag, Jcfl," he said. "Thank goodness," Jefl sighed. "Sorry, though, that 1 couldn't pull my weight in the boat. You two must have done a swell selling job." "We didn't have lo," Reagan told him. "The stuff sold itself." Tiiats great," said Jett. "Bui i hope NorUicott doesn't change hij mind. He's funny like that, you know." U seemed almost like an abortive attempt to pour cold water over their little triumph. She looked at him irritably and decided, then, that he was more nervous and distraught than even the robust hangover he had acquired seemed to warrant. For the thousandth time she wondered what it was. that had .upset Jefl and Myron so terribly on the previous night. But she inquire again, and they settled down to a period of comparative peace both at home and at the agency. During it a phenomenon occurred. Jennifer not only joined the family al dinner one night—she remained home all eveaingv Ede Lifted her eyebrows, but said nothing. When the phenomenon persisted through successive nights, however, she remarked upon k. "You're getting "Wouldn't you like to know," Jenn said, and left the room. Ede smiled lo herself. She did <nov one thing positively. Tommy Melbourne was giving Jenn the ibscnt treatment, in a most comprehensive way. A few days later, she read in the social notes (hat Mr. Hamilton Grieve had rented Wendover House. Bermuda. Nothing could have delighted Ede more. And yet, for some reason: the news item seemed incomplete. She Uought mbout it, oB and on, tor half a day before the explanation came.

He jumped at the chance to remedy this situation. "Now then. Gilbert," she said, when she met him. "Let's go Into the workings of your flne Italian hand." "Eh?" He was elaborately careless. "Don't stall! 1 mean about Ham Grieve and your little hideaway in Bermuda, of course," "Oh, that?" Gil smiled. "Well, it s«ems Ham and 1 belong to the same club. 1 happened to meet him there the other day and 1 bought him a drink. Which isn't hard to do, incidentally. Well, we got lo talking about . . . about the Frey family. And I said lhat it was too bad, wasn't it?" "What was too bad!" His eyes were innocent. "Why, about Jenn. Thii business of her not coming into her money 'till she's 30 and having to depend on an allowance from you in the meantime." Ede stared at him. "Gil Sum- merlield! Did you lell him lhat?" "1 certainly did." "And he actually believed you?" Gil grinned with relish. "Why wouldn't he? He knows that I've always known you people pretty well."
