Shame On Those Who Have Extorted Both Their Money And Their Teeth!

I think if I were a Jew I should chuckle to see my shekels furnish all the wars in which Christians cut one another's Christian weasands.

And who has not a tenderness for the 'beautiful and well- favoured' Rachels, and the 'tender-eyed' Leahs, and the tricksy little Zilpahs, and the Rebekahs, from the wife of Isaac of Gerar to the daughter of Isaac of York? Who would not love to sit with Jessica where moonlight sleeps, and watch the patines of bright gold reflected in her heavenly orbs?

Beninsky's orbs brightened visibly when I bade him break his fast at my high tea. I ordered everything they had in the house I think, - a cold Pomeranian GANSEBRUST, a garlicky WURST, and GERAUCHERTE LACHS.

Late into the night we smoked our meerschaums.
