Dimly, like the moving of an unborn child, the sense of beauty, that profitless thing, without which there is no profit in all the concerns of the world, began to trouble Keeling with a livelier indication of life than any that he had yet experienced from it. In some disconnected way it was connected with John鈥檚 education and Lord Inverbroom鈥檚 manner, and the denizens of the windows of the County Club as opposed to those who more numerously gathered in the windows of the Town Club next door. Propert, his salesman in the book department, had a cousinship to these men who made gargoyles and beautiful books, whereas Emmeline was only cousin to the pilasters in the Town Hall and the No. 1 drawing-room suite.

Keeling had never had a secretary who finished a heavy day鈥檚 work in so short a time. He owed her the extra half-hour鈥檚 leisure, which had led{86} to this appreciation of the gargoyles and buttresses of the Cathedral.
