Not the brightest husband

I was hoping that he would marry another girl, a particular protege of mine whom I have watched grow from a child, and a singularly fascinating child, at that, to a young woman of g race, charm and strength of character whom in my opinion has everything. Among other advantages which she possesses is sense enough for two, which, it seems to me, is just the amount the wife of Reginald ("Pongo") Twistleton will require.
