CHAPTER Fl 4 6.
WHY SHOULD DICKY BE AN
CERED BY A POSTCARD?
Dicky grinned reluctantly at me
when he had f inlshel his break
fast. His sense of humor could
not miss the divergence between
"the bountiful meal he had just
discussed . and his previous, pro
tests that he could Dot eat a
"I guess I can do as well with
these few monthf ula as some peo
' pie could with a full meal." he
quoted. "Bat I'll radio the fourth
dimension that you're some cook,
old girl!" !
-.- He v was so obviously sincere
that, womanlike, I feit my heart
soften toward him despite the
doubts of bis loyalty to me en
gendered by the book Inscription
and the mystery of his accident.
Ironically, I commented- to my
self that if the surest road to a
man's heart is through his stom
ach, one of the most certain ways
of disarming: a woman's anger is
to flatter her about her ability to
prepare good food. But the
knowledge made my' response to
his flattery no less cordial.
i'MercI, monsieur!" I swept him
a deep obeisance, "it is the .great
r- pleasure and, privilege I have to
. cater to the distinguished and dis
criminating a patron!"
ri He raised his hands high above
.- his head in moch surrender.
"Don't shoot any more!" he
.implored. "I'll come down. But
take my advice, my dear. Never
try the writing game. They pay
by the word, not by the syllable,
and you'd starve to death!"
Even though I knew that the
words were the idlest pleasantry,
I could not help wincing at the re-
i membrance of less good-natured
strictures which Dicky had utter.
i d concerning my undoubted pre
dilection for unusual words. It is
a result of my love for the study
of words and their-origins, and I
realize as well as my keenest
critic that it sometimes makes me
appear pedantic when I have
" neither the right nor the inclina
tion to be so considered. But I
let no hint of my chagrin escape
' me. ;

that of some other woman. I came
to the decision that Dicky had no

That my decision was strength

had not yet received positive
proof that Dicky was to blame for

against the brilliant army officer
had never died but was smoldering !

emotions, ready at any instant to j
break into flames.

fully. Ought I not to write to '
Hugh Grantland and askhim to
discontinue the cards which for i
years he had sent whenever he

Did I ow.e such a sacrifice to
