I Was About To Say That I Had Known The Celebrity From The Time He Wore Kilts But I See I Shall Have To Amend That, Because He Was Not A Celebrity Then, Nor, Indeed,
Did He Achieve Fame Until Some Time After I Had Left New York For The West In The Old Days, To My Commonplace And Unobserving Mind, He Gave No Evidences Of
Genius Whatsoever He Never Read Me Any Of His Manuscripts, Which I Can Safely Say He Would Have Done Had He Written Any At That Time, And Therefore My Lack Of
Detection Of His Promise May In Some Degree Be Pardoned But He Had Then None Of The Oddities And Mannerisms Which I Hold To Be Inseparable From Genius, And
Which Struck My Attention In After Days When I Came In Contact With The Celebrity Hence I Am Constrained To The Belief That His Eccentricity Must Have Arrived With His
Genius, And Both After The Age Of Twenty-Five Far Be It From Me To Question The Talents Of One Upon Whose Head Has Been Set The Laurel Of Fame When I Knew Him He Was A Young Man Without Frills Or Foibles, With An Excellent Head For Business He Was Starting In To Practise Law In A Downtown Office With The Intention Of Becoming
A Great Corporation Lawyer He Used To Drop Into My Chambers Once In A While To Smoke, And Was First-Rate Company When I Gave A Dinner There Was Generally A
Cover Laid For Him I Liked The Man For His Own Sake, And Even Had He Promised To Turn Out A Celebrity It Would Have Had No Weight With Me I Look Upon Notoriety
With The Same Indifference As On The Buttons On A Man's Shirt-Front, Or The Crest On His Note-Paper
