[David has just been told of the death of Beth and the twins. Howarth has tried to console him but has now let him go for a walk on his own on the moors, for which Algy Herries is reprimanding Howarth.]
Algy Herries: This is dreadful. What would *you* do in his place?
Howarth: I find it hard to imagine myself in his place.
Algy Herries: Yes you do. You do - that's just the trouble.
Howarth: But if I were, I should probably do what is usually called "something silly".
Algy Herries: And knowing that, you let him go?
Howarth: Damn it, man, I don't choose to defend myself! PJ's his own man. What I said to him is entirely between him and me. I don't think I convinced him - I hardly convinced myself. You may see human life as a sacred trust. I see it rather as something to be got through, with as little self-contempt and misery as possible - pretty insupportable at the best of times.
