Craven had been right in his supposition. about the world's governess.
Braybrooke. had gone away from the Club that evening firmly persuaded that his young friend had done
the almost unbelievable thing, had fallen in love with Adela. Sellingworth. He was really perturbed about it.
A tremulous sense of the fitness of things governed his whole life, presided as it were over all his.actions.
and even over most of his thoughts. He instinctively shrank from everything that was bizarre, from everything
that was, as he called it, "out of keeping.." He was responsible for the introduction of young.Craven.into Adela
Sellingworth's life.. It would be very unfortunate indeed, it would be almost disastrous, if the result of that
well-meant introduction were to be a preposterous. passion!
