This drawing appeared as a cartoon in Punch on 4 July 1896, page 9. The caption reads: "Oh, by the way, you remember that old bore professor Dodderington, who took such a fancy to you on the links at St Andrews last autumn? Well, he's in town and dying to meet you!"

"Ah - is he? Well, he won't meet me if I manage to catch sight of him first!"
