  • "You see, pard, I’m no gun; don’t need it in me biz. I’m a yagg (hobo, or safe-cracker) y—a—dougle g, sir, of the honorable clan of yaggmen. Some spell it y—e—double g, but I insist on the a, sir, as grammatically more correct, since the peerless word has no etymologic consanguinity with hen fruit, and should not be confounded by vulgar misspelling.�?
