A pretty girl in a blue dress came out of the house, and began to walk slowly across the terrace to where Elsa Keith sat with Marvin Rossiter in the shade of the big sycamore. Elsa and Marvin had become engaged some few days before, and were generally to be found at this time sitting together in some shaded spot in the grounds of the Keith's Long Island home. "What's troubling Betty, I wonder," said Elsa. "She looks worried." Marvin turned his head. "Is that your friend, Miss Silver?" "That's Betty. We were at college together. I want you to like Betty." "Then I will. When did she arrive?" "Last night. She's here for a month. What's the matter, Betty? This is Marvin. I want you to like Marvin."
