"When you come to-morrow, bring my football boots. Also, if humanly possible, Irish water-spaniel. Urgent. Regards. Tuppy."
'What do you make of that, Jeeves?'
'As I interpret the document, sir, Mr Glossop wishes you, when you come to-morrow, to bring his football boots. Also, if humanly possible, an Irish water-spaniel. He hints that the matter is urgent, and sends his regards.'
'Yes, that's how I read it, too.'
'What is an Irish water-spaniel?'
'A water-spaniel of a variety bred in Ireland, sir.'
'You think so?'
