Excerpt from the Introduction: It is by no means apologetically that I remind the reader how the NICHOLAS PAPERS were written week by week, in the brief intervals of arduous and engrossing journalistic work. On the contrary, I mention the fact, because it should increase one's admiration for the genius, which, under such circumstances, and from materials so slight, could create the life-like character of "The Old Man." For it is not merely to his quaint language and ingenious blundering that Nicholas owes his popularity; but to those masterly little touches, by which he is made to reveal himself, autobiographically, in all his cunning and all his meanness,-servile in adversity, ungrateful in prosperity, vain, mendacious, and disreputable.
