'Come and have some lunch with me, then, and afterwards we'll go to the City Road and talk things over on the spot.'
The vivacious young man was not quite so genial as of wont, but he evidently strove to show that the renewal of their relations as employer and clerk would make no difference in the friendly intercourse which had since been established; the invitation to lunch evidently had this purpose.

'I should take it, to be sure.'
