Poor Little Chap

Richard Le Gallienne (1866-1947), "Fractional Humanity," Prose Fancies (New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1894), pp. 28-34 (at 31):
You ask your little boy what he would like to be when he grows up. To your consternation he answers, 'A man!' You hide your face: you cannot tell him how impossible it is now to be that. Poor little chap! He is born centuries too late.
