a little bit of wodehouse

blandings castle by p.g. wodehouse

a letter from the hon. freddie threepwood to his father, lord emsworth, blandings castle, shropshire

Dear Guv'nor,

Awfully sorry and all that, but couldn't hold out any longer. I've popped up to London in the two-seater and Aggie and I were spliced this morning. There looked like being a bit of a hitch at one time, but Aggie's guv'nor, who has come over from America, managed to wangle it all right by getting a special licence or something of that order. A most capable Johnny. He's coming to see you. He wants to have a good long talk with you about the whole binge. Lush him up hospitably and all that, would you mind, because he's a really sound egg, and you'll like him.

Well, cheerio!

Your affectionate son,


P.S.-you won't mind if i freeze on the two-seater for the nonce, what? It may come in useful for the honeymoon.

there is MUCH more where this came from. there is a whole series on jeeves and his master bertie wooster. those are my favorites, but any wodehouse will lift the down hearted in (i think i am safe in saying this) the first three sentances or so.

pip-ho, what?

hope you have an absolutely pip-tosh day.
