Nay, Fair Maid

[Noted in HARVARD MAGAZINE, September/October 1990.]

Conservative Member of Parliament Geoffrey Dickens tells of attending a fair
in his constituency and being followed around by a sweet but exceptionally
ugly woman whom he couldnt get rid of.

A few days later he got an admiring letter from her asking for his
photograph, and signed, after her name, (Horseface).

Dickens was touched by her humorous modesty and sent off a picture
autographed, To Horseface, with best wishes, Geoffrey Dickens.

Some time later his secretary asked him, Did you get that letter from the
woman at the fair? I wrote Horseface after her name so youd know which
one she was.
