There is something in the indifferent content of her voice that jars upon Belinda's mood. The dogs have taken their cue from Miss Churchill — Punch has got inside the fender as if it were winter ; the cat lies lazily stretched just outside the parrot's cage ; and Polly, exasperated by her air of calm security, is walking. stealthily, head downwards,...
