Tax Inspector, sorry I have forgotten the author. Havent read the book, bu vaguely recall having read something like that in the synopsis while I was leafing through it.

NXT:
"I had my birthday party on Sunday afternoon. The Rin Tin Tin movie was a big hit with my classmates. I got two brooches, a bookmark and two books. I'll start by saying a few things about my school and my class, beginning with the students."

---From one of the most heart rendering tales ever.

next quote-"There is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast it is all a shame..."
