Synopsis
1HAD always detested the young man. I told my wife that I detested the young man. I pointed out that he was all the things I most dislikedórich, idle, precious, pseudo-artistic, ignorant, unlearned, a hanger-on to a student set younger than himself, a philanderer with women, no friend to his own sex. I pointed out further that a single addition to our compact little group would destroy all its balance, and that the addition of a young man such as Alaistair Crompton would ruin the whole friendly and sober spirit of our reading-party. Leslie agreed to all this. "But don't you think," she said "that mixing with just such a party might improve Alaistair? Steady him, I mean. When he sees us all getting through our reading programme and yet having an awfully good time as well, it might ginger him up a bit. Don't you think so?" "No, I don't," I answered, setting teeth and will firmly. It was time a stand was made, I decided. "I detest the young man, and I don't want him to join the party." But somehow, by the end of the evening, I had climbed down, and written to Alaistair Crompton, at Beaulieu, Horley-in-Arden, inviting him to join my modern history reading-party in Merioneth, starting by the 1.15 p.m. train from Lissingham on August 3rd. I apologized for giving him only three days' notice, and indicated that the fare would be wholesome and simple, and the accommodation in an old farmhouse on the Welsh hillside. I had little hope that this would deter him. There were too many desirable young women in the party.
