A novel by

 
Excerpt from The Involuntary Chaperon

But if I be I, as I think I be, I have a little chum at home, and shell know me. Lend me your ear, then - and when you get it back, I hope you wont think I've gone stark, staring mad, for, faith, I don't know whether I have or not! It happened in this wise, to wit:

Berenice Ames - Helen's daughter, you know - started the avalanche by declaring herself deeply, darkly, desperately in love with an ineligible, two or three years her senior, named Perry Waite, though why he is ineligible is another story, and one that impresses the Ames family much more than it does me. However, suffice it to say here that the Ameses, root and branch, are more than impressed - they are utterly confounded. They have tush-tushed and pooh-poohed in vain. In vain they have argued and cajoled and threatened and wept and prayed, individually and collectively. Apparently Berenice, who is the only girl in the whole family connection, has in her some of the determination that characterized that very unpleasant old party, her maternal grandmother, and since never before in her seventeen luxurious years have her doting parents denied her any bauble she happened to fancy, she naturally sees in their opposition to her immediate marriage to this undesirable young man simply tyranny and oppression, to which she nobly refuses to submit.
