George du Maurier

From English Society

Cook’s Tourist (female).—“What’s that jagged white line on the horizon, I wonder?”

Cook’s Tourist (male). — "Snow, probably!”

Cook’s Tourist (female). — “Ah! that’s much more likely! I heard the captain saying it was Greece!”

More enjoyable than du Maurier’s pun on Greece/grease is his careful depiction of fashionable late-Victorian clothing for well-to-do tourists.
