"See that bundle of letters?" said E. I. Horsman, the great "Tiddledy Winks Tennis" promoter, 80 William street.  "Well, there are sixty-five of them, every one orders for my favorite game, and they have got to be answered before I go to my dinner, because the writers must have their orders filled before Christmas, so they say, and we are so behind that I must personally be them to exercise a little patience in the matter.  'Tiddledy Winks Tennis' s a great thing, I tell you, but I cannot stop to explain why just now.  Come again -- after the holidays, when the rush is over -- and we will confer together on the subject."
