Excerpt from What Next?: Or, the Honest Thief You will allow me in the course of this introductory chapter to my novelette, to mention the difference in the style of the titles worn by what are called the bet ter class of society in the old world, and the passports which are necessarily worn by people seeking admis sion into good society in the American Republic.
