Quote of the week

Today's quote comes from the excellently titled "A Honeymoon in Space" by George Griffith, and is an exchange between an Englishman and a young American woman. Lord Redgrave says:
"I'm for sound money all the time, if I may be permitted to speak American."

"English is quite good enough for us, Lord Redgrave," said Miss Zaidie a little stiffly. "We may have improved on the old language a bit, still we understand it, and—well, we can forgive its shortcomings.["]
