"Herbert! How are we going to get married?"
"How soon can you get some of your aunt's money?"
"I've got enough by me to go on with."
"How much do you call enough?"
"Oh, about ninety pounds."
"You sly little thing! Who'd have thought you were stuffed with money like this? It's not so long ago since I pointed out a big hole in your glove, and you said you had to wear old gloves, because you couldn't afford to buy yourself a pair of new ones."
"I dare say; that was a hint to you."
"Was it? then it was thrown away, because if I possessed the price of a pair of gloves it was as much as I did have; though in the sweet by and by I'm going to be a millionaire."
"You haven't said how we're going to get married."
"I'm going to get the licence the other end, and we're going to be married to-morrow."
