The Literary Drover No. 472

[The description and accolade are intended toward a mule, but they also apply to the humble scribe, the ink-stained wretch, The Writer. I don’t what that implies.]

Perhaps there is no other animal so much abused, or so little cared for. Popular opinion of his nature has not been favorable; and he has had to plod and work through life against the prejudices of the ignorant.
—Muleskinner Harvey Riley, 1867
