Daily Dose

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


"He departed with reluctance, grumbling as we walked homewards at the scanty store of bacon, lately condemned as gross and abominable.  The dainty rustic food made a strong impression upon his lively fancy, for when we arrived the first words he uttered were, 'We have been eating bacon together on Hounslow Heath, and do you know it was very nice.  Cannot we have bacon here, Mary?'

'Yes, you can, if you please; but not to-night.  Here is your tea; take that!'

'I had rather have some more bacon!' sighed the Poet."

From T. J. Hogg
