She said: "Not mad, Chuck. Just erribly disappointed. You sec, she knew you from your snugglcbunny lays. And it's hard for her to sec you grow up lo be the village vagrant."

Has she been maligning him?" ''Not so much today," Alice said. "But, another time she made me understand pretty definitely that she didn't think very much of him."
