The Short Sighted.  The short sighted are the deadly foes of all authors who let themselves go.  These authors should know the wrath with which these people shut the book in which they observe that its creator needs fifty pages to express five ideas.  And the cause of their wrath is that they have endangered what remains of their vision almost without compensation.  A short sighted person said, "All authors let themselves go”.  "Even the Holy Ghost"?  "Even the Holy Ghost”.  But he had a right to, for he wrote for those who had lost their sight altogether.
