“Well, then,' said Peter, 'I guess we'll just have to find a cab.'

Peter said this in the manner of a cowboy telling the womenfolk that, because of the avalanche, they were going to have to take the pass through Indian country. In fact, as Holly and Peter both knew, nothing could have been easier than finding a free cab, for at this hour they flowed steadily down the avenue. But if Peter were to regain some face by wrangling one, the fiction had to be kept up that this would be a challenging task.

Will you try?' Holly asked

Sure,' said Peter. He stepped off the curb, raised his hand, and a taxi pulled up in front of them about five seconds later.

Thank goodness!' Holly said.”
