A New Scholar

A CALIFORNIAN gold digger having become rich, desired a friend to

procure for him a library of books. The friend obeyed, and received a

letter of thanks thus worded: I am obliged to you for the pains of your

selection. I particularly admire a grand religious poem about Paradise,

by a Mr. Milton, and a set of plays (quite delightful) by a Mr.

Shakespeare. If these gentlemen should write and publish anything more,

be sure and send me their new works.
