Royal Quiet De Luxe (1950)

Transcribed below.

The Beginning of Doubt.

We were young. We believed we could do it all.
We were confident, thinking we knew it all.
Now we’re old, and I’m sure I can do as much,
But I’m no longer sure about you as much.

Our frequent correspondent “Maypo” asks, “How are these written? Does the good Doctor own all these wonderful machines?”

Yes, we must admit it with a sigh of resignation.
Don’t call it a collection, though. Just say “accumulation.”


  1. Maypo says:

    I wouldn’t throw stones, calling a collector a cur. Especially given the good Doctor didn’t toss “with my fingers dear sir.”
