Original caption
VERY TRUE Clara - "Dear Augustus, do get up, it is really worth looking at - just see how beautifully Poughkeepsie is situated." Augustus - "So am I beautifully situated and well worth looking at, and yet Poughkeepsie doesn't pay me the compliment of getting up to look at me. Why shall I then get up and look at Poughkeepsie?"
