In which Lord Emsworth finds Dame Daphne Winkworth being shoved at him as a
prospective second Countess; in which Dame Daphne's horrible son Huxley is
determined to release the Empress for cross-country exercise; in which the
Empress gets pie-eyed on whisky and bites Huxley's finger; in which Dame
Daphne hears Lord Emsworth calling the vet to ask if biting Huxley can have
done the Empress any harm; in which Gally introduces a pseudo-Augustus
Whipple to the castle and the real one wants to visit too; in which beefy
Monica Simmons, the Empress's current guardian, is wooed and won by little
Wilfred Allsop; in which Tipton Plimsoll and Veronica Wedge head for the
Lady Hermione Wedge is in the hostess's chair now that Connie has become
Lady Constance Schoonmaker, married in New York. Tipton still hasn't
married Veronica and when Lord Emsworth mistakenly announces that Tipton
has lost all his money, Veronica's parents find he has lost all his charm
as a prospective son-in-law.
At this late stage Wodehouse ravels as tangled a plot as ever, but he
unravels it with a rather unseemly rush. Gally has to 'tell the tale' (i.e.
lie) briskly in all directions to get the right endings.
