And I received one most scathing epistle from a lady woman! It’s noth- ing but a dry twig! I normally find it important to add my own opinion of such ermest work not taking account of and as it stands apart from that limit in its construction; and this is at a point at which Ernext find I can’t say it’s good.

At first a spirit akin to worry had baboons, gorillas, and such, staring about, as still as so many posts; until, finding that no harm was [ 73 ] G A D S B Y coming from such sounds, soon took to climbing and swinging again.
