He stood there idly playing with the chain that was clipped to his coat. He glanced round, observing those walking by him, and as had become his habit since he acquired the watch, slowly pulled on the chain until the pocket watch hit his hand. He clicked open the smart cover, and noted the time. Not long now, he mused. And he felt his heart increase as the thought of it became clearer.
Thanks for the bow tie (which are impossible to get hold of here) which was exactly what I wanted. Your service has impressed me a lot; to the degree that this is the first return "well done" mail I've ever written. The tie is great quality and arrived on Wednesday morning, having been ordered on Sunday afternoon, by normal post, which was very impressive. You will definitely receive further business from me and probably our postman who, being interested in any package coming from the UK, was fascinated and amazed that it is possible to tie your own bow tie. He now wants lessons.
