George du Maurier

Jones (a rising young British architect).— “Yes; it’s a charming old castle you’ve bought, Mrs. Prynne, and I heartily congratulate you on being its possessor!”

Fair California Widow (just settled in the old country).— “Thanks. And now you must find me a legend for it, Mr. Jones!”

Jones.— “I'm afraid I can’t manage that; but I could add a story, if that will do as well!”
