To Know how to Suffer in Public.  We must advertise our misfortunes and from time to time heave audible sighs and show visible marks of impatience.  For if we could let others see how assured and happy we are in spite of pain and privation, how envious and ill tempered they would become at the sight!  But we must take care not to corrupt our fellow men; besides, if they knew the truth, they would levy a heavy toll upon us.  At any rate our public misfortune is our private advantage.
