THE pleasant summer breeze, wafting the perfume of June roses, ruffled Joan Maye's curls, as she lay in the deck-chair placidly reading. A sudden growl from the wire-haired terrier beside her made her drop her book to her lap and turn her head to see the cause. A frown of annoyance puckered her pleasant face as she saw the little figure of a man who, dressed as a butler, was trundling a tea-trolley across the trim lawn towards her. The trolley came to a stop and the ingratiating voice of the butler caused the frown on Joan's forehead to deepen.
"Leave the trolley, please, Sneyd," she said. "I'll help myself."
"Very good, Miss," replied the man, and turning, he walked slowly back towards the house.
Joan Maye stared after him curiously, annoyed with herself at being so foolish as to dislike the man. But somehow Charles Sneyd aroused in her an instinctive feeling of distrust. Yet he was in great favour with her two uncles, who praised him as a model butler.
