"Speaking of Operations--"
by Irvin S. Cobb
Respectfully dedicated to two classes:
Those who have already been operated on
Those who have not yet been operated on
Now that the last belated bill for services professionally rendered First Page Next Page Last Page
has been properly paid and properly receipted; now that the memory
of the event, like the mark of the stitches, has faded out from a
vivid red to a becoming pink shade; now that I pass a display of
adhesive tape in a drug-store window without flinching--I sit me
down to write a little piece about a certain matter--a small thing,
but mine own--to wit, That Operation.
