Family Roundabout

A novel by

Helen was listening to Mrs. Willoughby's account of a new scheme for taking down the worst of Bellington's slums and building model workmen's flats in their place. It appeared that Mrs. Willoughby was on the committee, and, knowing that, you felt that the scheme would very soon be put into action, that she would give no one any peace till the flats were erected. Helen listened with interest and approval. She liked the atmosphere of driving energy that the Willouglibys carried about with them, an atmosphere noticeably absent in her own family. Her own family would have been interested in the scheme in a detached, impersonal kind of way, but they would probably have considered the slum picturesque, found bits of interesting architecture all over it and regretted its disappearance. In any case, it would never have occurred to them to do anything about it themselves.
