Publisher's Summary

O. Henry's poignant tale of a failed courtship. On the day his beloved marries another man, Trysdale reflects on his own courtship and how it came to a peculiar end.
He had asked the girl to marry him, and the next day she had sent him a cactus in a pot. No note, no message. But from that moment the relationship fell apart. But why? Who was to blame? What was the meaning of the cactus?
O. Henry at his most ingenious...and with a wonderful twist in the tale.
