Bertie Changes His Mind by P. G. Wodehouse It has happened so frequently in the past few years that young fellows starting in my profession have come to me for a word of advice, that Ive found it convenient now to condense my system into a brief formula. Resource and Tactthat is my motto. Tact, of course, has always been with me a sine qua non: while as for resource, I think I may say that I have usually contrived to show a certain modicum of what I might call finesse in handling those little ...

Spring Fever P.G. Wodehouse BOOK ONE 1 Spring had come to New York, the eight-fifteen train from Great Neck had come to the Pennsylvania terminus, and G. Ellery Cobbold, that stout economic royalist, had come to his downtown office, all set to prise another wad of currency out of the common people. It was a lovely morning, breathing of bock beer and the birth of a new baseball season, and the sap was running strongly in Mr. Cobbolds veins. He looked like a cartoon of Capital in a labor paper, ...

Petticoat Influence P G Wodehouse My brother Bob sometimes says that if he dies young or gets white hair at the age of thirty it will be all my fault. He says that I was bad at fifteen, worse at sixteen, while present day, as they put it in the biographies of celebrities, I am simply awful. This is very ungrateful of him, because I have always done my best to make him a credit to the family. He is just beginning his second year at Oxford, so, naturally, he wants repressing. Ever since I put my ...

Love Me, Love My Dog P G Wodehouse After five minutes of silent and intense thought, John Barton gave out the statement that the moonlight on the terrace was pretty. Aline Ellison said, Yes, very pretty. But, I say, by Jove, said the voice behind them, you should see some of the moonlight effects on the Mediterranean, Barton. You really should. They would appeal to you. There is nothing like them, is there, Miss Ellison Homicidal feelings surged up within Johns bosom. This was the fourth time ...

Ladies And Gentlemen v. Players P G Wodehouse Quite without meaning it, I really won the Gentlemen v. Players match the summer I was eighteen. They dont say anything about me in the reports, but all the time I was really the thingummy - the iron hand behind the velvet glove, or something. Thats not it, but its something of the sort. What I mean is, if it hadnt been for me, the Gentlemen would never have won. My cousin Bill admits this....

Keeping It From Harold P G Wodehouse Ma Mrs. Bramble looked up, beaming with a kind of amiable fat-headedness. She was the stupidest woman in Barnes, and one of the best-tempered. A domestic creature, wrapped up in Bill, her husband, and Harold, her son. At the present moment only the latter was with her. He sat on the other side of the table, his lips gravely pursed and his eyes a trifle cloudy behind their spectacles. Before him on the red tablecloth lay an open book. His powerful brain was ...

Homoeopathic Treatment P. G. Wodehouse In most of the houses of Wrykyn boys who had been at the school two years, and who were consequently in a sort of transition stage between fags and human beings, shared studies in couples. The fags pigged in a body in a common room of their own. This rule was pleasant enough, provided you got a study-companion of tastes and habits similar to your own. But it often happened that, once in your study, an apparently perfect individual developed some deadly ...

I replied that what with publishers reckoning thirteen copies as twelve, and editors regretting their so-called lack of space sic, things were, for my humble needs, bad enough already. After which I asked for details. I have been reading a book, said he, by a DR. GEORGE M GOULD. It is called Biographic Clinics , and it deals with the ...

The Return of Jeeves The waiter, who had slipped out to make a quick telephone call, came back into the coffee-room of the Goose and Gherkin wearing the starry-eyed look of a man who has just learned that he has backed a long-priced winner. He yearned to share his happiness with someone, and the only possible confidant was the woman at the table near the door, who was having a small gin and tonic and whiling away the time by reading a book of spiritualistic interest. He decided to tell her the ...

Meaning by the country the half-dozen of us who were gathered together in the billiard-room at Heath Hall smoking, playing pool, and talking cricket shop, with particular reference to the match which would come to an end on the following day. It was, indeed, a most solemn and important occasion. This was the last night but one of the Hall cricket-week, and, so far, success had crowned the efforts ...
