'The woods are full of people who want to be editors'

SCHRUNCHINS
A daily taste of Newfoundlandia


“An editor is a man who is liable to grammatical blunders, tooth-aches, typographical errors, and lapses of memory, and usually he has ninety-thousand people watching to catch him tripping. He is a man of sorrow, acquainted with grief and poverty, and frequently liable to go ragged and dry for a very long period. And yet the woods are full of people who want to be editors.”

The Twillingate Sun, September 1884.
