A Good Fellow






    Two members of a literary society asked to define 'a good fellow' replied: 'Mr. Le Blanc.—A good fellow is one who studies deep, reads trigonometry, and burns love songs; has a most cordial aversion for dancing [...] and would rather encounter a cannon than a fancy ball. Hon. G. Montgomery.—A good fellow is one who abhors moralists and mathematics, and adores the classics'.
