Excerpt

she hasn't left her room; crying her eyes out, because I won't consent to her marrying a penniless young officer! But I will not squander my money. I made it all myself, by my own industry, and I refuse to keep young fellows in idleness."

"I don't give you any trouble, father."

"You are the best, Maggie, but you encourage your sister Sally. I hear that you, too, were seen walking with young Meason."

"It is not true, I assure you, father. I met him as I was going to the post-office. I said, 'How do you do?' and I passed on."

The author has a long introduction in which he says this is the worst book he ever wrote. I haven't read all his other books, so I can't judge whether he's right, but he ought to know. All I can say is that I didn't enjoy this one.

The story is a fairly disdainful look at a squabbling family of "Cits" — a money-grubbing father, three flirtatious daughters and a nebbishy son — plus a handsome fool, the nephew and heir to a peer, who was the son's schoolmate. Pretty much everybody in the novel is a fool, and none of them improve with time.
