I have ever had a wish to be liked by those around me 鈥?a wish that during the first half of my life was never gratified. In my school-days no small part of my misery came from the envy with which I regarded the popularity of popular boys. They seemed to me to live in a social paradise, while the desolation of my pandemonium was complete. And afterwards, when I was in London as a young man, I had but few friends. Among the clerks in the Post Office I held my own fairly for the first two or three years; but even then I regarded myself as something of a pariah. My Irish life had been much better.

"Call at my office in the city, and business arrangements can be made there." 鈥楺uite so. And now will you take me to find my wife? Let us be in a conspiracy, and not mention that we have been in the house half an hour already.
