First published in UK: April 7 1932 by Methuen & Co, London

A short novel taken from Wodehouse's play Good Morning, Bill.

The arrival of a golf-ball on green at the eighteenth hole at Bingley-on-Sea after only two strokes sets in motion a train of events to cast men everywhere into despondency. For the striker of the ball is Dr Sally Smith, a girl who is not only a woman doctor but beautiful into the bargain/ The disease of love in its most virulent strain attacks Bill Bannister; confusion sets in everywhere, and only a prescription of Wodehousian wit and humour can save the situation.
