Wodehouse, P. (n.d.). Love Among the Chickens. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Sixteen years ago, my William, when we were young and spritely lads; when you were a tricky centre?forward and I a fast bowler; when your head was covered with hair and my list of ?Hobbies? in Who?s Who included Boxing; I received from you one morning about thirty closely? written foolscap pages, giving me the details of your friend ??s adventures on his Devonshire chicken farm. Round these I wove as funny a plot as I could, but the book stands or falls by the stuff you gave me about ?Ukridge? the things that actually happened. You will notice that I have practically re?written the book. There was some pretty bad work in it, and it had ?dated.? As an instance of the way in which the march of modern civilisation has left the 1906 edition behind, I may mention that on page twenty?one I was able to make Ukridge speak of selling eggs at six for fivepence!
