Tale and Fantasies, Vol. 4 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Tale and Fantasies, Vol. 4 John varey nicholson was stupid; yet stupider men than he are now sprawling in Parliament, and landing themselves as the authors of their own dis tinction. He was of a fat habit, even from boyhood, and inclined to a cheerful and cursory reading of the face of life; and possibly this attitude of mind was the original cause of his misfortunes. Beyond this hint philosophy is silent on his career, and supersti tion steps in with the more ready explanation that he was detested of the gods.
