Excerpt from London Society, 1868, Vol. 14: An Illustrated Magazine of Light and Amusing Literature for the Hours of RelaxationEm, fugaces anm'. Years rolled over Algy's spruce, carefully-tended head; his back-hair does not take him so long in the 'doing' now, there is not so much behind as of yore, and it's getting very thin on the top, sir,' for poor Algy is going on for thirty now, and both fame and fortune are as far off as they were ten years ago. He has writteis going on for thirty now, and both fame and fortune are as far off as they were ten years ago. He has written another comedy-drama since, which he fondly thought would draw over flowing houses, but it did not keep its place in the bills after the second week; he managed to get a bar lesque produce with a new 'ske daddle break-down of his own in vention, which he likewise was cer tain would be a 'great go' and fill the treasury, but somehow or other it did neither. He has had several little pictures in the Sufl'olk Street Exhibition, and his Dead Warrior' was hung on the line in the Ace demy; but again, somehow or other, people didn't buy them there. Then they were sent ofl' to Manchester exhibitions and sale-rooms, then travelled round to the Crystal Palace at Sydenham, and so back again to London and the Art Unions, ulti mately, perhaps, finding their way in sheer desperation to Algy's studio, where they turned their faces meekly to the wall, and gave themselves up to dust and the tender mercies of the charwoman.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
