Excerpt
Excerpt: Certain persons have interrogated the author as to why there was such a demand for these tales that no year passes without his giving an installment of them, and why he has lately taken to writing commas mixed up with bad syllables, at which the ladies publicly knit their brows, and have put to him other questions of a like character.
