You’ll find this hard to believe, Buck, but I’ve been in a fight, a fist fight, a regular, slam-bang, rough-and-tumble, bitter-end fight! And I didn’t do so badly either. Get it straight. I, Thad Plimpton, your old campus satellite-staid professor in Thurston College, Maine, “that little zoology man,” the mild of manner, the faculty peacemaker-not only have engaged in a physical encounter, but with a six-footer who had fifty pounds the advantage of me! And, though I’m sore all over and have a stiff neck and a skinned knuckle, I feel pretty good over it.
