They've a cricket week next month, when this boy Crowley comes of age, and we've both got to go down and play.
My son Crowley only just scraped into the eleven at Harrow, and HE'S going to play.
Raffles will tell you all about it, and Crowley shall write.
Nor was my annoyance lessened by a little meeting I witnessed between young Crowley and his father, who shrugged as he stopped and stooped to convey some information which made the young man look a little blank.
In the dining-room he and Crowley lit their cigarettes with the same match, and had their heads together all the time.
Crowley told me all about it after dinner, you see, and then I'd seen one of the men for myself this afternoon.
At that my man ceased struggling; but I was still holding him when Crowley turned up the gas.
