"It's a good thing clocks don't tell the same time all over the world, or I should never get round."

I haven't looked this up, but I bet it is Father Christmas who says that.

Let's try it with "E"s - unfortunately, not with ease! I found an "I am frightfully sorry" in the Father Christmas Letters, but the sentence did not continue like your quote does. I'll have to see if I can locate it elsewhere or read more closely again.

Now I found the right letter - it's Father Christmas, of course, writing in 1928:
Quote:
I am frightfully sorry - I gave this to the Polar Bear to post and he forgot all about it! We found it on the hall table - today.
Sounds like some forgotten threads on occasion...

Question

Hm, as far as I can see, it is:

"Get on to the explanation, and make it short; I've no time for long rigmaroles."

I have a feeling it might be from "Roverandom", but I can't look for it since I have lent the book to a friend...

That's excellent for not having the book to look it up! Yes, it is from Roverandom, and since you can't check, I'll add that the speaker is Artaxerxes. You're next.
