    Excerpt from Humorous Episodes in the Life of a Provincial Publisher: Extending Over Fifty Years

    Shortly after this the junior clerk had written some rent receipts for property factored by Morri son. There were no penny receipt stamps in those days. What the junior clerk used were one and-sixpence and two-and-sixpence stamps. Mor rison lifted one, read it, and beginning to foam at the mouth and puff at the nose (evidently a storm was coming), said to the innocent youth: Who the devil wrote this? The youth, tremb ling, replied I did. Morrison without saying a word silently folded it, then tore it into a bun dred pieces, and threw them up into the air, ex claiming excitedly: Where the devil were you educated, and who taught you to write? Look at your damnable flourishes and your hen-scarts. I would rather chap stones by the roadside than be troubled-with you; you may make up your bal ances (dismissal).
