Charles G.D. Roberts
APRIL 1, 1908
I do not ever wish to come to Toronto again. Nor do
I wish to see another such photograph of you—never
was Mr. Daggerotype’s1
invention put to more disgusting use, or bedroom slipper.
And I do not care to hear about Mr. Carman’s
revolting tricks with silver coins and peanuts. By
anyone other than myself you would be called pigs,
but my respect for those clean and mannerly gentlemen
is far too great for that. No, you are maggots—filthy
maggots—and I want no more to do with you.
