From Good Company: A Rally of Men, by E. V. Lucas


"One day, I met him with a huge broken brick, and some bits of thatch upon the crown of his hat; on my asking him for a solution of this prosopopoeia -- 'Sir,' said he, 'today is the anniversary of the celebrated Doctor Goldsmith's death, and I am now in the character of his Deserted Village.'"

From George Coleman the Younger
