‘Twas Henry’s Fault (1918)
Henry wanted a sport roadster – Betty wanted a sedan. Financially, the prospect suggested their compromising on a pushcart. But Betty had saved a few dollars toward some lovely headlights and, seized by a sudden inspiration, she invested them in an old flivver and rushed into Henry’s office with “Henry, we have a car!” Henry and the others rushed out to see the car and then poor Henry had to stand for a lot of kidding. However, it ran – occasionally. Henry brought the crowd home that night for a home-cooked dinner only to find that the car and Betty had run way out to the country, where the former had stopped for a good long rest. Many complications resulted but it all came out right in the end, and even Henry had to admit there was some good in his flivver.
