She Would Never Have Believed Him to Be Such a Slowtop . . .
When her brother informed her that to clear off his debts he had agreed to find her a husband, Miranda Branscombe was horrified, chiefly because she could not trust her rackety young brother's notion of a suitable suitor.
To ensure the best results, Peter Kerswell, their childhood friend and companion, was persuaded to add his greater connections and maturity to the search. Miranda agreed to co-operate with fewer misgivings than before.
Soon she was forced to choose between a wicked London lord and a rich hypochondriac. There appeared to be no recourse until another eligible parti stepped forward, who but for his blockheaded blunder, Miranda would have accepted in the blink of an eye.
Mr. Peter Kerswell and Miss Miranda Branscombe
