John Segundus did not play billiards and he had never been to a coffee house like the one he was in now. He did, however, have new clothes, which he was glad of on this evening. Mrs Lennox had told him that they wouldn’t be the extravagance he thought, that if he was to be spending part of the winter in London he would need nice garments, and she was right. Segundus wondered if she had somehow anticipated that he would wind up in the company of an army officer and a Minster, playing badly at the game he had been invited to but at least not looking shabby next to them. His hosts for the evening had been teaching him the basics of the game for half an hour now.
