'Mr Finsbury,' said the drawing-master, 'I have tried to reason
this matter out, and, with your permission, I should like to lay
before you the results.'
'Fire away,' said Michael; 'but please, Pitman, remember it's
Sunday, and let's have no bad language.'
'There are three views open to us,' began Pitman. 'First this may
