Daily Dose

From Vanity Fair, by William Makepeace Thackeray


"Beyond her and a favorite old pointer he had, and between whom and himself an attachment subsisted during the period of his imbecility, the old man had not a single friend to mourn him, having indeed, during the whole course of his life, never taken the least pains to secure one."

From Chapter XLI, In Which Becky Revisits the Halls of Her Ancestors
