Excerpt from The Happy Hypocrite: A Fairy Tale for Tired Men George Hell. I will t trouble my little readers with a long recital of his great maugh tiness. But it were well they should kw that he was greedy, destructive, and disobedi ent: I am afraid there is doubt that he often sat up at Carlton House until long after bed-time, playing at games, and that he gen erally ate and drank more than was good for him. His fondness for fine clothes was such that he used to dress on week-days quite as gorgeously as good people dress on Sundays. He was thirty-five years old and a great grief to his parents.
