Painful scene at Drones Membership
On the similar time, Drones Membership had a quite painful scene. Psmith, who returned to the protection of the constructing, had left for the washroom, where he studied his hair when the rain was a bit unclear when he had examined his trait for a second within the mirror, and brushed his garments extraordinarily cautiously. Then he went to his hat room. The employees looked at him as he entered the air, whose mind was not completely at relaxation.
"Walderwick was here a moment ago, sir," stated the nurse.
"Yes?" Stated Psmith, slightly . “Energinen, the wolf soul, Comrade Walderwick. Always somewhere. Now here, now… ”
“ He asked his umbrella, ”continued his follower with coldness.
”Really? Asking about his umbrella? "
" He made a great surprise about it. "
" And quite right, "stated Psmith with approval. "A good man loves his umbrella."
"Of course I had to tell him you had taken it, sir."
"I wouldn't have it otherwise," with Psmith's consent. “I like this ambition. There have to be no reservation, no you and your companion between Walderwick. Let all be open and above the board. "
" He looked great, sir. He went out to find you. "
" I'm always glad that I talked with a companion Walderwickin, "stated PSmith. "Always."
He left the cloakroom and made a corridor the place he needed Porter to get him in the cockpit. This one who had graduated in entrance of the membership landed in the steps and was coming to him after a coarse cry and behind the front door was a pale indignant younger man who referred to as loudly:  & # 39; Hey! Smith! Dash it! ”
Psmith climbed into the cockpit and appeared enthusiastically at the newcomer.
"Ah, Comrade Walderwick!" He stated. "What are we in our minds?"
"Where's the umbrella?" “The cloakroom waiter says you took the umbrella. I imply, the joke is a joke, however it was damaged by a superb umbrella. "
" It was indeed, "Psmith cordially agreed. “It may be interesting to know that I chose it as the only possible competitor. I'm afraid that this club is getting very confused, Comrade Walderwick. With your pure pleasure, you would hardly believe some of the
umbrellas I checked in the referent room. ”
” The place is it? "
? Flip left once you go in from the primary entrance and… ”
” My Umbrella! Where's the Umbrella? "
" Ah, there, said Psmith, and there were a few men sorry for the bis, "you have got me. I gave it to a younger young road. Where he’s in the mean time, I couldn't say. ”
The younger lady rattled slightly.
“Did you give the umbrella to the girl?”
”A really unfastened method to describe her. You're not speaking about her so flippantly should you had seen her, Comrade Walderwick, she was fantastic! I’m an abnormal, uninteresting, austere man, above the softer emotions, but I confess truthfully that he combined a chord in me, which is usually confused. He impressed my previous heart, Comrade Walderwick. There isn’t a different word.
"But, think about it! …"
Psmith reached for an extended arm and put his hand on another shoulder.
"Be brave, Comrade Walderwick," he stated. “Point this thing as a man! I'm sorry that I had been an excellent tool to remove from you umbrellas, but because you understand easily, I had no choice. It was raining. He was there, desperately swirling under this tent. He wanted to be somewhere else, but the humidity waited for his hat. What could I do? What could anyone do worthy of their name, but go down to the cloakroom and squeeze the best visible umbrella and take it to her? Yours was easily the best. There was no comparison. I gave it to him, and he has left it, happy again. This explanation, "said Psmith," I will certainly reduce the natural angle. You've lost your umbrella, Comrade Walderwick, but for what reason! Why, Comrade Walderwick! You now have the right to invest in Sir Philip Sidney and Sir Walter Ralegh. The latter is perhaps mainly historical in parallel. He spread his cloak to keep the queen from wetting her feet. You – a proxy server – you got an umbrella to save the girl's hat. Posterity is proud of you, Comrade Walderwick. I'm surprised, if you do not go down in legend and song. The children of the future will cluster on the grandfather's knees, saying, "Tell us how great Walderwick lost his umbrella, Grandpapa!" that I have to do this little debate – one which I heartily enjoyed. Drive, ”he stated, leaning towards the window. “I want to go to Ada Clarkson's International Employment Office at Shaftesbury Avenue.”
The cab moved away. Hon. After one passionate look, Hugo Walderwick realized he was getting moist and went again to the club.
After receiving the named tackle, Psmith paid for his cab and, when installed alongside the stairs, gently flushed the Inquiries glass.
“Dear Miss Clarkson,” she began with an excellent voice as quickly because the window was shot, “if you can save me a few minutes of your valuable time…”
”Miss Clarkson is involved. 19659003] Psmith critically examined him via his monocle.
& # 39; d not Miss Clarkson? & # 39;
The inquiries stated he was not.
"Then," stated PSmith, "has been a misunderstanding," he added cordially, "I am the culprit. Maybe I could see her anon? You'll find me in the waiting state when it's needed. "
She went to the ready room, and when she had taken a magazine from the table, she landed to read the story of The Women & # 39; s Petri in January 1919; She was absorbed here when Eve got here out of the office.
Psmith Seeks Employment
Psmith rose politely when he got here.
"Dear Miss Clarkson," he stated, "if you can save me your precious time …"
"Good gracious!" Stated Eve. "How special!"
"Single chance," agreed Psmith.
"You have never given me time to thank you for the umbrella," stated Eve fallacious. “You need to assume me terribly impolite. But you took my life.
"Dear Miss Clarkson, Don't Do…"
"Why do you call me that?"
"Are you not Miss Clarkson?" 19659003] "Of course I'm not."
"Then," stated Psmith, "I have to start my exploration again. These continuous checks are trying to be eager. Maybe you're a young bride who has come to her first chef?"
"No. I'm not married."  "Good."
Eve discovered her embarrassed gratitude a bit embarrassing. "We would be alone." "He glanced at the dripping window." However it was raining exhausting, wasn't it? "
" Like Dickens, "Psmith agreed.
" Then you would be well with you, or do I like it tonight? "
" Thank you a lot. I'll ship it again tonight for those who give me the identify and handle. ”
Psmith waved his hand out of time.
”No, no. If it's useful to you, I hope you take a look at it as a presence. ”
” A present? ”
“ Gift, ”defined Psmith.
”However I really can't go to simply accept costly umbrellas from individuals. Where will I ship it? “
” When you demand, you’ll be able to send it to Hon. Hugo Walderwick, Drones Club, Dover Road. But it isn’t actually needed. ”
” I don't overlook. Thanks very much, Mr Walderwick. ”
” Why do you call me that? ”
“ Well, you said… ”
” Ah, I see. Small thoughts. No, I'm not Mr Walderwick. And I ought to be hated. He's a very C3 intelligence. Comrade Walderwick is just the man to whom the umbrella belongs. ”
Eve's eyes opened vast.
"Are you saying you gave me someone else's umbrella?"
"I was unfortunately left unchecked this morning this morning."
"I've never heard of such a thing!" 19659003] “Only sensible socialism. Other individuals are completely satisfied to talk about redistributing property. I'll go out and do it. "
" But he gained't be terribly indignant when he knows it's gone? ”
” He has clarified. And it was time to see his joy. I defined the circumstances, and he was ecstatic to serve you. ”
The door was opened again, and this time it was Miss Clarkson personally. He had discovered an Inquiries assertion concerning the speech tube and unsatisfactory, and he had come to research himself for why the office machines have been closed.
