    J M Barrie:


    Once a man marries, his eyes are opened to many things that he was quite unaware of previously, among them being the delight of adding an article of furniture to the drawing-room every month, and having a bedroom in pink and gold, the door of which is always kept locked. If men would only consider that every cigar they smoke would buy part of a new piano-stool in terra-cotta plush, and that for every pound tin of tobacco purchased away goes a vase for growing dead geraniums in, they would surely hesitate. They do not consider, however, until they marry, and then they are forced to it. For my own part, I fail to see why bachelors should be allowed to smoke as much as they like, when we are debarred from it.

    The very smell of tobacco is abominable, for one cannot get it out of the curtains, and there is little pleasure in existence unless the curtains are all right.

    Exhausted carrier pigeon just arrived from Cymru with a message:

    "Hi Chris


    Pipe is with me & I have made a start on it for you, bloody lovely indeed, I cannot see any cracking or defects in the chamber & it has not been heavily smoked that's for sure

    The rim had a small amount of stubborn carbon on it but I have removed that & is nice & clean, will make a start on the stem tomorrow & go through the internals of the bowl

    Great pipe though & looks like you have scored a winner here buddy


    Best wishes
