Your God ain't nothing but a Paradise capitalist and aristocrat the sort of one that fixes up a flower garden for Him and jest His saints to set in the middle of and sing and harp on their harps, while a right smart chance of the best folks sneak and shuffle around in the outer darkness forever because, like me, they had no chance to be good, and so went wrong before they knowed where they were going.
"Shall we," he inquired gravely, "think you shall we pay extra to the company for this excursion?" The battle below had been fought and lost. It was of minutes now.

The placards announcing the tea were still clinging to the outer railings of the hall. When I said that Blake asked for free tea, I should have said, shouted for free tea. He cast one decisive glance at Hatton's placards, and rolled up.
