A safe escort would be provided for us, and we would be on British soil within a few hours after our meeting.

My real friends were, and still are, completely in the dark as to my movements, so skilfully was the trick managed.

I had seated myself again at the table. I put my hand to my forehead. "Don't make it hard, Hugh," I heard her say, gently. "Believe me, it is best. I know. There won't be any talk about it, right away, at any rate. People will think it natural that I should wish to go abroad for the summer. And later well, the point of view about such affairs has changed. They are better understood."
