|Document:Ellwood vs Ellwood||“Pagett, MP, was a liar, and a fluent liar therewith –
He spoke of the heat of India as the ‘Asian Solar Myth’; Came on a four months’ visit, to ‘study the East,’ in November, And I got him to sign an agreement vowing to stay till September.
And I laughed as I drove from the station, but the mirth died out on my lips As I thought of the fools like Pagett who write of their ‘Eastern trips’, And the sneers of the travelled idiots who duly misgovern the land,And I prayed to the Lord to deliver another one into my hand.”
