He was not stern enough

It is an unpleasant thing to say of any man, but there is no denying that the hon. Galahad's face, when he was listening to the confessions of those who had behaved as they ought not to have behaved, very frequently lacked the austerity and disapproval which one likes to see in faces on such occasions.

(from Summer Lightning, by Sir Pelham Wodehouse)
