Excerpt from Stories Without Tears

Mr. Sandys Opened an exercise-book and observed that Smithson’s first sentence was dicit ut veniret. To a pedant this hardly seemed a satisfactory render ing of he says that he will come. But in times of mental perplexity, which were frequent with him, Smithson always gave up hope and went into the sub junctive. Wilfred Sandys decided suddenly that, after all, he would not correct those exercise-books that night; he had done enough for one day.

He took methodical steps for his own comfort. He put the coal (what there was of it) on the fire. He placed in position the easy chair, with three exercise books to take the place of a missing castor. He fetched from his bedroom a glass and water-bottle. Then he removed the lower front of the ex-piano and took out from the interior a bottle of Scotch whisky good’whisky, but, of course, a thing prohibited.
