In passing, some of the followers of these notes are schoolmasters, and one of them called me over the coals for using expressions like that — well, did you ever! There I go again!— and said I didn't write perfect English. Of course, I don't; I just love to jolly well split infinitives, and ending a sentence with a preposition is one of the best ways I know of. And it ticles me no end to start one with a conjunction. But (there's another one) let's get back to the job.
