I Can't See It

George Bourne, pseudonym of George Sturt (1863-1927), Change in the Village (New York: George H. Doran Company, 1912), p. 139:
An oldish man, who had been telling me one evening how they used to live in his boyhood, looked pensively across the valley when he had done, and so stood for a minute or two, as if trying to recover his impressions of that lost time. At last, with appearance of an effort to speak patiently, "Ah," he said, "they tells me times are better now, but I can't see it;" and it was plain enough that he thought our present times the worse.
