    Excerpt from The Scandalous Mr. Waldo

    Money, said my father in his most offensively police court manner, is the curse of your existence.

    I looked up from my plate. My distinguished parent was glaring at me over his pince-nez - he wears them at a ridiculous angle - and a frown puckered up his narrow, high forehead into vaguely geometrical figures. His long thin fingers nervously tapped the cloth, and his lips, having helped to formulate the remark, closed tight. At the moment he is reputed the greatest criminal lawyer at the bar. He has a habit of persistent hard work, 'and is without ideas upon the subject of moderation. His extraordinary activity, indeed, leaves me in a state of chronic amazement. He has been honoured by every Uni versity in the United Kingdom, and has refused two judgeships. For my particular benefit he has declined a baronetcy and accepted a knighthood. Although his income exceeds my own by some thousands, he prefers to remain a paying guest in my house. Putting prejudice aside, I am forced to admit that in spite of interminable sarcasms on his part and petty encounters between us, we remain upon friendly terms. The one disappointment in his life is myself, for I am the chief bone of contention between us. I suppose it is a little odd that father and son should be so antagonistically moulded, but so it is. Sir Henry Waldo spells sleuth-hound to the public.
