  The two men,sole occupants of the somewhat shabby cottage parlour,lingered over their port,not so much with the air of wine lovers,but rather as human beings and intimates,perfectly content with their surroundings and company.Outside,the wind was howling over the marshes,and occasional bursts of rain came streaming against the window panes.Inside at any rate was comfort,triumphing over varying conditions.The cloth upon the plain deal table was of fine linen,the decanter and glasses were beautifully cut;there were walnuts and,in a far Corner,cigars of a well-known brand and cigarettes from a famous tobacconist.Beyond that little oasis,however,were all the evidences of a hired abode.A hole in the closely drawn curtains was fastened together by a safety pin.The horsehair easy-chairs bore disfiguring antimacassars,the photographs which adorned the walls were grotesque but typical of village ideals,the carpet was threadbare,the closed door secured by a latch instead of the usual knob.One side of the room was littered with golf clubs,a huge game bag and several boxes of cartridges.Two shotguns lay upon the remains of a sofa.It scarcely needed the costume of Miles Furley,the host,to demonstrate the fact that this was the temporary abode of a visitor to the Blakeney marshes in search of sport.
