Selections from the Miscellaneous Writings of Dr. George W. Bagby
George William Bagby - 1884
Billy Ivvins, in great wrath, has pulled out a hideous _nigger-knocker_,
and I have had a glorious nibble.
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
-Mark Twain
