Ring Lardner, 1921


  • Are you lost daddy I arsked tenderly.
Shut up he explained.
  • Soon my father had payed the check and gave the waiter a lordly bribe and once more we sprang into the machine and was on our way.
  • A good many young writers make the mistake of enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope, big enough for the manuscript to come back in. This is too much of a temptation to the editor.
