Evidence

In Chapter XII [sic], ""Letters on Daily Life"": "In my young days we used to read Miss Edgeworth"s story of ""To-morrow"", in which the procrastinator gives the history of the misfortunes that his habit has involved him in, and breaks off abruptly, leaving it to his editor to say that the story was to be finished [italics]to-morrow[end italics]. I don"t know that the tale actually prevented me from procrastinating when I was a child, but it imprinted firmly in my mind that procrastination was a dangerous fault, and the impression has remained with me and been very useful ever since."
