Now, this may be true or it may not, but anyway some people say it is, so perhaps it is, and it’s this. An unmarried man, well it could be a widower I suppose, it’s so hard to tell these days, or perhaps divorced, although I don’t think that’s what dear Jane had in mind. Well, as I was saying, this man, well not any special man, just a man, except he has to be rich, yes, that’s it, rich, well-off, you know, comfortable, it depends what you mean by rich, I suppose, anyway, what was I saying? Ah yes, this man is sure to be looking for a wife. Well, when I say sure, that’s what dear Jane says, and she must know, mustn’t she? And when she says wife, I don’t suppose she means somebody else’s wife, do you?
