Inhaltsangabe: Birmingham. I so little expected him, at the same time, to recognise me that I stopped short of the carriage near which he stood I looked for a seat that wouldnt make us neighbours. I had met him at Newmarch only a place of a charm so special as to create rather a bond among its guests; but he had always, in the interval, so failed to know me that I could only hold him as stupid unless I held him as impertinent. He was stupid in fact, and in that character had no business at Newmarch; but he had also, no doubt, his system, which he applied without discernment I wondered, while I saw my things put into my corner, what Newmarch could see in him for it always had to see something before it made a sign. His good looks, which were striking, perhaps paid his way his six feet and more of stature, his low-growing, tight-curling hair, his big, bare, blooming face.

What I could directly clutch at was that if the exception did prove the rule in the one case it might equally prove it in the other. If on a rare occasion one of these couples might be divided, so, by as uncommon a chance, the other might be joined; the only difference being in the gravity of the violated law. For which pair was the betrayal greatest? It was not till dinner was nearly ended and the ladies were about to withdraw that I recovered lucidity to make out how much more machinery would have had to be put into motion consistently to prevent, than once in a way to minimise, the disconcerting accident. All accidents, I must add, were presently to lose themselves in the unexpectedness of my finding myself, before we left the dining-room, in easy talk with Gilbert Long
