The Diary of a Nobody by George and Weedon Grossmith
Introduction by Mr. Pooter
Why should I not publish my diary? I have often seen reminiscences
of people I have never even heard of, and I fail to see - because I
do not happen to be a 'Somebody' - why my diary should not be
interesting. My only regret is that I did not commence it when I
was a youth.
We settle down in our new home, and I resolve to keep a diary.
Tradesmen trouble us a bit, so does the scraper. The Curate calls
and pays me a great compliment.
