Not enthusiastic consent

          Geraldine reflected. "I think the best plan is for me to cable him today to return at once, as you are now prepared to give your full consent to our marriage."
          Lord Wivelscombe sat for a moment in thought. "You consider that the best plan?"
          "I do."
          "What's the next best?"

(from "The Luck of the Stiffhams," by Sir Pelham Wodehouse)
