A MONSTER OF INGRATITUDE
"A fat man-monster...head-hole... as fast as you can." Thanks for the book, Mr. Merchant. You gave it to me, didn't you? Gave it to me with a broad smile. "Jimmy", you said when I came in. One more peculiar thing to live with, notwithunderstanding. Why do they love me so? Everyone else has to buy these horrible books; only I get them for free, out of love. It's embarrassing, but I keep cold, not reacting, not acknowledging. And yes, of course I do pay, I do owe. Well, that's better, it makes sense. "The advent of the Manfrog! His hideous passion, his dreadful revenge!" Wonderful! Is this the correct price? It seems a little high.
