Invitation

While Edward VII was Prince of Wales, he once invited Lord Charles Beresford -- one of his closest associates -- to dinner. "VERY SORRY CANT COME," Beresford playfully cabled back. "LIE FOLLOWS BY POST."

[Winston Churchill once described Beresford as "one of those orators of whom it was well said, 'Before they get up, they do not know what they are going to say; when they are spearking, they do not know what they are saying; and when they have sat down, they do not know what they have said.'"]
