The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, September, 1922

[My Dear Mr. Sullivan (replied Gilbert)]

page 51
My Dear Mr. Sullivan (replied Gilbert)—

I have to acknowledge yours of even date, and to allege in reply, that my beliefs, if any, take the form of a triple triology. If you press me to be explicit, I should enumerate them as follows:—

Firstly: In the world, the flesh and the devil.

Secondly: In mankind's threefold heritage from the ape, the tiger and the donkey.

Thirdly: In the indispensability, in all good stories, of an Englishman, a Scotchman and an Irishman. a Scothman and an Irishaman

Yours diagnostically,

P. D. Gilbert.
