I just think it's enormously too nice a day

  I just think it's     enormously too nice a   day, to be remembering   James Knox Polk.

But that's just how it is, so many times, as one accepts the advice of a strong review. Fine, yes; but how much of his awful war is going to comport with a tour of one's gar-den, right now, when a week's pressing business is at last, suspended? No, it wasn't fair of Mr Polk, but what do you say we refuse him another day to ruin? And you know, it will only make us think of Texas.
