- The mile between Greyfriars and the theatre at Courtfield was a mile too far for Bunter where walking was concerned. He had wangled a free ticket from Smithy but the main attraction was the promised 'spread' in the bun shop afterwards. He soon gave way to temptation of a quiet rest. But he soon moved with an unprecedented speed, not to Courtfield, but into the comparative safety of the wood, and - unbelievably for Bunter - up a tree: someone was after him, or so he thought. But what he saw convinced him that it was advisable to stay there for a long time.
- This was the first of a remarkable serie of events which to Bunter were alarming, though his plea for a bodyguard was received with no more sympathy and no less derision than was any other of the Bunter fantasies until the fattest figure in Greyfriars School disappeared.
