There are three infallible ways of pleasing an author, the
three form a rising scale of compliment: 1, to tell him
you have read one of his books; 2, to tell him you have
read all of his books; 3, to ask him to read the manuscript
of his forthcoming book. No. 1 admits you to his respect;
No. 2 admits you to his admiration; No. 3 carries you clear to
his heart.
