Wednesday’s Piece

“England has certainly got rid of a good deal of its refuse through means of emigration……she has (also) been disembarrassed of a vast number of turbulent radicals and the like, men who are decidely able but by no means eminent, and whose zeal, self-confidence and irreverance far out-balance their other qualities.”

(Sir Francis Galton, 1822 – 1991)

John Lentell

7th October, 1969
