So it seemed that whenever my coming marriage was discussed, my recently acquired fortune always seemed to come under consideration.
I couldn't help enjoying my interview with Lady Bodrean.
After the will had been read I presented myself to her. She regarded me as though I were quite distasteful, which I suppose I was.
"So," she said, "you have come to hand in your notice."
"Certainly I have, Lady Bodrean."
"I expected it would not be long before you did. So I am to be inconvenienced."
I replied: "Well, if I was so useful to you, a fact which you very carefully concealed, I would be willing to stay for a week or so until you have replaced me."
you have come to hand in your notice??
