More Hazlitt: Table-Talk Volume I

As I promised yesterday, there is today no more Bayle. Instead, there is another great favourite of mine, William Hazlitt, and namely

Table-Talk Volume I

Indeed - all of it, nicely edited as well, though I have to thankfully grant that nearly all of the work was done, and very well indeed, by the editors who did it for Project Gutenberg.

I redid it, dividing one big html-file into two volumes, and each of these into  separate files with separate essays, all linked at the top by arrow-keys, but then that was easy, firstly because Gutenberg's editors did a fine job (and I should mention Google's search-machine seems to try to appropriate it just as Google tries to appropriate all books with defunct copyrights, no doubt to increase its share-value - and I neither like nor trust Google, who care much more for profit than is moral for any man or institution, even for entrepreneurs and businesses (*)), and secondly because, as I said before, B12 seems to help me. (And no: I may be mistaken, but this has, in my case, good probabilistic grounds and evidence, indeed such as are very rare in psychiatry.)

So I am quite pleased, for I wanted to do this for a long time, and you should be pleased too - a little, at least - because Hazlitt is a great writer.

(*) They are in the league of big US corporations who use the tax-paradise Holland to avoid paying more than very minimal taxes in the US.

P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.
