All just a little bitta history repeating (VI)

Another object lesson from one of this corner's best book-sale finds in ages:
It is strange that so many of the reporters who regularly trooped out to meet Premier Smallwood when he visited Ottawa and questioned him, never seemed to be shocked — amused, yes, but never shocked — at his actions. They never seemed to be concerned with is rash decision to invest the better part of $45 million that he had received immediately after Confederation into a bounch of industries all within a couple of years.
– William J. Browne, “And now... Eighty-seven years a Newfoundlander”. St. John's: Dicks, 1981, pp. 292.
