Because we think she’s awesome.October 13, 2010
So, I have no idea what happened with my last post.
I wrote a couple of paragraphs about The Social Secretary and saved them as a draft. Then I got distracted by The Bookman. There was a link I wanted to save, and I pasted it into the draft. And then, instead of saving it, I pressed publish.
I unpublished it pretty quickly, but it looks from the site stats like it might have stayed in the RSS feed? If you saw it, I apologize.
If you went to the URL in the post, you probably found a piece about how Carolyn Wells wanted a new word for light verse. Eh. But if you looked around a little more, you might have found the thing I didn’t want to lose track of. It was on the letters page.
A lady in Chicago, who signs her letter “F. E.,” asks a question and makes a remark. We shall consider each of these separately.
(i) Why are you always so respectful to Carolyn Wells?
Because we admire her so much.
I have omitted the remark.
From The Bookman, p. 170
Also, the full post on The Social Secretary is up now.
