Have to be tough to be engaged to this Glossop

Of course, there are probably fellows in the world - tough, hardy blokes with strong chins and glittering eyes - who could get engaged to this Glossop menace and like it, but I knew perfectly well that Biffy was not one of them. Honoria, you see, is one of those robust, dynamic girls with the muscles of a welterweight and a laugh like a squadron of cavalry charging over a tin bridge. A beastly thing to have to face over the breakfast table.
