Jeff's not a cad, is he?

Sir: Why should we be called cads? Sir Robert Stephens is certainly not the first man to kiss and tell and good luck to him. Anyway, he's not a cad. I can't think of a bigger betrayal than a woman who does deny the fact that she has been to bed with me. I gave my biographer, Graham Lord, a list of the well-known women I have had affairs with and the only exceptions I made were women whose stupid husbands fool- ishly thought, and still think, they are hap- pily married.
