Charles Kennaway

 

‘Bumped into Kennaway last night’

‘How’s he doing?’

‘Well, you know.... Anyway, thing is, one of his junior partners is our friend Barton’

‘I thought he was dead – drowned in a bottle, didn’t he?’

‘No, that was his father – this is the son. No longer one of ours, of course’

‘So he was the chappy who came a cropper in the Institution, then?’

‘Indeed’

‘Should we be worried?’

‘Wouldn’t have thought so’

‘I think you’ll find Marcus disagrees....’
