Adrian paid some attention at last. "Roy Maxwell! Is he here?" he asked.
"Mm. Camping," said Gabrielle. "We told him that we knew Dicky Fountain frightfully well, he was thrilled to meet us. He's very Scotch, I can hardly make out what he's saying, you can practise your Scotch on him."
"Hoots, awa' mon, and dinna haver," said Adrian.
Susan observed to no one in particular that she had never in her life heard any living creature say Hoots, but the Gascoignes didn't seem to care.
