Dr. Sidney Melhuish was, as nearly always at mealtimes, a little abstracted. The long day's work which had begun before nine that morning had ended but five minutes before he had entered his dining-room at a quarter to eight. He was tired, preoccupied with reminiscences of an unusually large number of unusually serious cases, a little worried by incipient earache—with him a chronic trouble in wintertime.

Excerpt
THE PERSON TO WHOM THAT LETTER had been begun sat just then at a table at the Ritz, smiling across the debris of dessert at—as no doubt she was perfectly aware—the prettiest and smartest young woman in a roomful of decorative femininity. Through the smoke of his cigarette he noted the fact with entire satisfaction, if without the least admixture of self-complacency. Pickles was thirty-five—more than half-way towards thirty-six. She looked . . . what? Not a day older than twenty, despite seven years of matrimony . . . and Simon Wyckham. Not a line, not a wrinkle In that delicious skin. No sign of tarnish in the gold of that imperious little head. No tiniest possible suspicion of that double chin which ... as he had known since her pigtail days—had always been the most dreaded of all possible evil chances that life might hold for her. And, best of all, no dulling of the keen tempered spirit that was 'Pickles.' Still the little witch of— Lord, how many years ago since he had first, fallen in love with her—in the very first vacation of his Harrow days. Still one eyebrow a little higher than the other when she smiled.
