Apoor women of rich men! May I invite you to the swing this morning – as Hans Albers used to do? Please don’t suspect that I’m trying to fool you. Far be it from me, you can ask my professorial companion from Holstein. I’m not a nasty bob, as the Rhinelander calls devious types, but honest skin, and if you are poor but happily married to a rich man, I want to show you two ways in which you too can become a little millionaire.

Then you should make yourself comfortable and read on.
