If everybody were musicians and moralists, it would be nice, no doubt; but one might get tired of it in time, and then what would you do?

We shall then, perhaps, frequently witness the spectacle of authors turning upon their reviewers, and ...

... abilities. The figures against his name in Wisden prove a good deal. The fact that he had steered Kay's through into the last round of the house-matches proves still more. It was perfectly obvious to everyone that, if only you could get Fenn out for under ten, Kay's total for that innings would be nearer twenty than forty. They were an appalling side. But then no house bowler had as yet succeeded in getting Fenn out for under ten. In the six innings he had played in the competition ...
