Evidence

"There was Hamish, confirmed practical joker, who donned stage make-up and a false beard and, pretending serious research, persuaded a member of the Bodleian staff to bring him John Wilkes"s ""Essay on Woman"" - a work so scandalous that it was on the restricted access list - and copied it out for [itaklics] zamizdat [end italics] circulation among a select few: ""Awake my Fanny, leave all meaner things, This morn shall show what rapture swiving brings..."" I accepted a copy, on several sheets of smudged carbon, and for many weeks hid it in the lining of my trunk, expecting that at any moment, in some fateful fashion, the sin would proclaim itself".
