For the same reason, Colonel Arthur couldn't go, since you'll want him to meet the Mattocks? Captain Con's underlip shone with a roguish thinness. 'Arthur must be here, said Mrs. Adister. 'I cannot bring myself to write it.

Jervaise did not once interrupt me, but I saw that he was listening with all his attention, studying my statement as he might have studied a complicated brief. And when I had done, he thrust out his ugly underlip with an effect of sneering incredulity that I found almost unendurably irritating. "Do you mean to say that you don't believe me?"
