When I consider how the world is bor'd by scribbling fellows who are much my betters, and how it dotes upon the countless horde of titled magnates in the field of letters, I wish to goodness I had been a lord: for all my chances of success it fetters to look for money (not to mention fame) without a handle to my sorry name.
I'm not a writer like a skilled attorney or penny-liner for the daily press: I've no acquaintance with the art of Gurney or Isaac Pitman, and I must confess I like to loiter on a pleasant journey, and let my pencil or my pen digress: there's entertainment in a shady by-way that's never met with on the dusty highway.
