Written in 1963.

"His two battered suitcases came and he unpacked leisurely and then ordered from Room Service a bottle of the Taittinger Blanc de Blancs that he had made his traditional drink at Royale. When the bottle, in its frosted silver bucket, came, he drank a quarter of it rather fast and then went into the bathroom and had an ice-cold shower and washed his hair with Pinaud Elixir, that prince among shampoos, to get the dust of the roads out of it. Then he slipped on his dark-blue tropical worsted trousers, white sea-island cottone shirt, socks and black casual shoes (he abhorred shoe-laces), and went and sat by the window and looked out acorss the promenade to the sea and wondered where he would have dinner and what he would choose to eat."
