For three years, the young attorney had been taking his brief vacations
this country inn. The last time he'd finally managed an affair with the
innkeeper's daughter. Looking forward to an exciting few days, he
his suitcase up the stairs of the inn, then stopped short. There sat his
lover with an infant in her lap!
"Helen, why didn't you write when you learned you were pregnant?" he
"I would have rushed up here, we could have gotten married, and the
would have my name!"
"Well," she said, "when my folks found out about my condition, we sat up
all night talkin' and talkin' and decided it would be better to have a
bastard in the family than a lawyer!"
