1911 Excerpt: ...Ballon. And so the matter ended, eh? Peer. Oh no,
far otherwise I found it; For busy-bodies mixed themselves, With
furious outcries, in the business. The juniors of the clan were
worst; With seven of them I fought a duel. That time I never shall
forget, Though I came through it all in safety. It cost me blood;
but that same blood Attests the value of my person, And points

practical Peer. Lights a cigar. Dear friends Just think of my
career in general. In what case came I to the West? A poor young
fellow, empty-handed; I had to battle sore for bread; Trust me, I
often found it hard. But life, my friends, ah, life is dear, And,
as the phrase goes, death is bitter. Well Luck, you see, ...
