Excerpt from Shadows, Vol. 17: May, 1926
So, perhaps, you will agree with me after reading some hyper-conscientious man's account of his losing struggle for some flapper's hand, that the old philo sophical doctrine of broad mental reservation has to be stretched to the utmost, or we, too, will some day bemoan a fate that we believed cast us brickbats ih stead of flapper-jacks. Now all this is merely intro ductory to the plight of one Richard Greene. Poor old Dick had some very heartrending experiences, eyen up to the night I met him in the Shanghai after the Prom. It seems incredible that in this day and age anyone could retain Richard's point of View concern ing the fidelity and honor of his fellows, but I might add that Richard paid dearly for his indiscretion.
