Founder of Penneys

 

Sir, – I am saddened to learn of the demise of Penneys founder Arthur Ryan, the Irishman who will be fondly remembered for inventing a new method of accepting a compliment. Person A: “Your dress is lovely.” Person B: “Penneys.”

May he rest in peace. – Yours, etc,

FRANK BYRNE,

Terenure,
