Daily Dose

From The Letters of Bret Harte, assembled and edited by Geoffrey Bret Harte


"... they are one and all exceedingly gentle and singularly diffident in their opinions; and certainly never visibly astonished at anything. It may seem a dreadful thing to say, but their manner is that of persons who might be in the habit of living with mad people, or attending some kind of reformatory."

From a letter dated, " Trewsbury, Cirencester, September 15, 1889"
