I heard Starry choke with emotion as he said: "Polly! Oh, Polly---Are you OK?"
Polly smiled what I thought looked like a hopeless little smile and said in a low voice: "Hello, Starry--I--I..."
"That's quite enough, my dear." said Crawly smoothly. "These gentlemen were concerned about your health and welfare--and they can plainly see that you are quite all right---Isn't that correct, my dear Polly?"
