 The Sick Nephew

 Uncle Reuben was in the big city to visit his sister, Mary Ann.  They were walking together along a city street when they came to a small hotel.

“Before we go any farther,” Reuben said to his sister, “I should like to stop a moment and inquire about a sick nephew of mine who lives in this hotel.”

“Well, ” replied Mary Ann, “seeing as I don’t happen to have any sick nephew to worry about, I will just trot on home.  We can continue our sightseeing this afternoon.

What relation was Mary Ann to that mysterious nephew?
