Ravelstein was still un able to walk and had only the partial use of his arms and of his hands. He could smoke, he could dial numbers on the telephone--otherwise he was, in the French expression he preferred, _hors d'usage__. As soon as Nikki arrived, Rosamund and I left and waited outside. After a time Nikki came out with tears on his face. He very seldom discussed Ravelstein with me or other friends. He accepted us because we had been vetted by Abe. We were the people Abe talked to about matters he, Nikki, was not interested in.

I was unwilling to take her notions of good conduct into account. She said afterward that she could never forgive him for blundering into her room. Why did he rush in without warning, before she was dressed?
