Quote: John Warren Harper ...

He never took a vacation, and at sixty they read his will.
His day for "retiring from business"
Death wrote in a codicil;
And pinn'd on the door of his office
Was a note which grimly read,
"Out of town -- on a long vacation
     Indefinite" it said.

-- from "He Never Took a Vacation," in An Old Fly Book and Other Stuff, 1912
