    Excerpt from Malayan Memories

    Only twice did I know him display a lively interest in what passes with most of us for real business. The first time was when the younger of his two sons was, like the elder, appointed panghuht. He had been proud of the elder holding office, but that both of them should be headmen and be with nothing but the memory of his dismissal! A special visit was paid, a special letter presented with line upon line of compli ment and the gist in the last sentence. Was he too old to hope for office again? The second concern he would have scorned, had he not been desperately pressed for money to lavish on a grandchild's christening, one of those episodes which were the stud of his life. He was the last man to publish the weaknesses of any of his own family or put his salt out in the rain, as he would have phrased it. However, under the stimulus of urgent need, be had no choice but to invest my office, a tragic figure gnawed with want and shame and anger, if haply he might waylay his eldest son for the recovery of an old debt; and his son being as far above mundane matters as himself, he got it only by presenting his solemn curse writ fair for recital in the mosque! As a rule, he came upon suaver errands.
