Wells, H. G. (n.d.). Mr. Brisher's Treasure. Retrieved from

I surveyed the flushed countenance, the equatorial expansion, the masterly carelessness of his attire, and heaved a sigh to think that by reason of the unworthiness of women he must needs be the last of his race. ?I was a smart young chap when I was younger,? said Mr. Brisher. ?I ?ad my work cut out.
