As for the captains, Hay and Devers hadn't been on speaking terms for two years.
"Thanks," said Devers, pulling gratefully at the steaming tin.
The officer could not understand how it was that in broad daylight Major Warren when searching had failed to see Devers's trail.
It ill accorded with what they wrote him from the front as Devers's story.
Devers had a storm-door, another instance of his individuality, as even the colonel's quarters were not so embellished.
Another thing had Devers done, and done most diplomatically.
Devers burst in with interrupting words, and was instantly coolly checked.
Captain Devers left his line to Mr. Hastings and did not appear at stables at all.
In fact, I told Mr. Devers that if he didn't let me come down here, I'd quit and come, anyway.
Sick-call was sounding as they passed the barracks, and Captain Devers met them on the walk.
