Excerpt:

IN THE FIRST PLACE PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT I do not

expect you to believe this story. Nor could you wonder

had you witnessed a recent experience of mine when,

in the armor of blissful and stupendous ignorance,

I gaily narrated the gist of it to a Fellow of the Royal

Geological Society on the occasion of my last trip to London.

You would surely have thought that I had been detected

in no less a heinous crime than the purloining of the Crown

Jewels from the Tower, or putting poison in the coffee

of His Majesty the King.

The erudite gentleman in whom I confided congealed

before I was half through!--it is all that saved him

from exploding--and my dreams of an Honorary Fellowship,

gold medals, and a niche in the Hall of Fame faded into

the thin, cold air of his arctic atmosphere.
