That forenoon King shook hands with Archie, Teddy, Gratton, and the rest, made his formal bows to Gloria's girl friends, and felt relief when the inept banalities languished and he was free to draw apart. Gratton, with slender finger to his shadowy moustache, bore down upon him.

However, on his return he wrote to me from the Langham Hotel, and I went up to town to see him, and to make an appointment for his coming here. He, the girls, and came down last Saturday night, and stayed until Monday forenoon. I turned out a couple of postilions in the old red jacket of the old red royal Dover road, for our ride; and it was like a holiday ride in England fifty years ago.

He soon had that midshipman, who was wholly willing to serve Darrin in any capacity. "We're ready to have the fight this evening," proposed Midshipman Decker. "We're not," retorted Dan, with vigor. "Why not?" "This forenoon Pennington deliberately stepped on Darrin's shoulder, with such force as to lame it a good deal," replied Dan.

What he meant by "scrumptious" is best known to himself, but at that moment a large deer suddenly perhaps scrumptiously! appeared on the brow of a ridge not fifty yards in advance of him. They had been both walking towards each other all that forenoon.

Perhaps we shall see a storm yet from the eastward; and, having the whole sweep of the broad Atlantic between here and Ireland, I do not see why it should not be fully equal to a storm at sea. It has been raining more or less all the forenoon, and now, at twelve o'clock, blows, as Mr.
