Spendthrifts, and Other Social Photographs (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Spendthrifts, and Other Social Photographs One may surmise that the young man who made so free with a needy father's half-crowns had possessions of some kind of his own to which he himself attached value. Suppose him to be a first-rate cricketer, and that he had won a presentation bat with a long score what would he have said had he seen his father in a gay, thoughtless fit use this precious bat to break coals with? Let us speak resignedly rather than with admiration of that light-heartednessibwbich can make a young man guard jealously a toy w rich is his own, and throw to the winds money which belongs to his parents, sisters or friends. Every Spendthrift has in him somewhat of the stuff of a criminal. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
