I'm reading A Bachelor Establishment.


From page 56:

Perhaps Charles was right to think about settling down, and if that was truly what he wanted, Lord Ryde would do everything in his power to help him achieve his wish.

And what of himself? Would he continue his travels alone? The prospect held no appeal. He had a suspicion that what were enjoyable adventures when shared with a good friend would be in no way as enjoyable without him, but was the alternative any better? To settle at Ryde House with its cold, dark memories? To hear the name of Bascombe every day? To preside over decay and ruin?
