The Enchanted Wanderer: Selected Tales

How could you argue with a man, who in every way was your superior; he knew more about baptism than I did, and how many times one could be baptized, he was learned in names, and knew how to snore, and I did not know how to--in everything he had the advantage--he must be given all due honour and precedence.
