It is not strange that such a young man should write such maxims as the following, in his riper years: "Pride breakfasts with plenty, dines with poverty, and sups with infamy."

His integrity was no less marked.

The ape held on as firmly as a Mexican to a restive mule, one of its fore-arms clutching the shoulder-blade of the reptile, while the other was constantly oscillating in the air, as if searching for something to seize upon. For what purpose it did this, the spectators could not at first tell, it was not long, however, before they discovered its intention.

They wrote that on a piece of paper, so that Andre might get the letter. You see they can be no great things, women who take the name of X and a Z." "They will never pay you."
