Cecily: I think you had better wait till Uncle Jack arrives. I know he wants to speak to you about your emigrating.

Algernon: About my what?

Cecily: Your emigrating. He has gone up to buy your outfit.

Algernon: I certainly wouldn’t let Jack buy my outfit. He has no taste in neckties at all.

Cecily: I don’t think you will require neckties. Uncle Jack is sending you to Australia.

Algernon: Australia! I’d sooner die.

Cecily: Well, he said at dinner on Wednesday night, that you would have to choose between this world, the next world, and Australia.

‘Algernon: Oh, well! The accounts I have received of Australia and the next world, are not particularly encouraging.
