Just once before this grand first decade of "The New Age" gets too far gone for hell or heaven (I'm as likely as any man to throw a seven before forty), I'd like to serve one of those shicers from the City of Smells who lays on the jam, but as I'm not in a position to go where there's influence without the demons jerries to me, the strong of it is once I had to write or burst and all that came of it was country crumbs, now I scribble what I can in the sincere hope that all editors, publishers, critics and their hangers-on, those paper giants with their circles and spheres of influence, will put their considerable fund of reputation into the publication and promotion of this doodling and consequently be gone a million and never guess the game.
