Hiccup and Happiness

By November 9, 2015Factoids

A letter from Lord Byron to Thomas Moore, dated October 31, 1815.

“Kinnaird and I had to conduct Sheridan down a damned corkscrew staircase, which had certainly been constructed before the discovery of fermented liquors, and to which no legs, however crooked, could possibly accommodate themselves.”

People just don’t write emails like that anymore.

(Thanks to my friend Meredith for directing me to this.)
