Mister Ron's Basement #1681

James De Mille was a Canadian author and humorist whose work was often published in American journals such as Harper's Weekly. This week we will be reading excerpts from his hilarious 1872 novel, 'The Dodge Club.'

Today, some members of the Dodge Club have to struggle to keep from laughing their heads off during a Church Service in Sorrento in 'The Senator Has Such a Fancy for Seeking Useful Information.'

Time: approx eleven and a half minutes
