It Didn't Save Him. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 19 February 1914

It Didn't Save Him. Among the less-known writers of the nineteenth century was Samuel Hogers. He kept open house, and frequently entertained Dickens, Ata caulay, CarJyle, nnd other celebri ties of the time. Rogers wns n not able wit, but * unfortunately his thrusts were not n I ways tempered with kindness. Irving* in a letter, sny.s, "T dined tete-a-tete with him some time since, and be served up his friends as he served up his fish, with a squeeze of lemon over each. It was very piquant, but it set my teeth on edge." This same caustic flavour of his wit is shown in a story he was fond of telling to the discredit of French valour. An Knglishman and a Frenchman had pot into a woydy . squabble, which led to mutual insults and a challenge. Nothing could save the honour of either of .them but a; duel, Hut duels were not fought to kill, Kven serious wounds uoro unplea sant, and a more scratch would an swer the purpose much better. So ! that the antagonists might have a better chance of m...
