The most irritating, inveterate snorer

“I often elect to sit up during the night and read for several hours if it is not altogether too cold. My comrades strongly approve of my doing so, for they do not cease to remind me daily that I am the most irritating, inveterate snorer they have ever had the misfortune to be in the same dormitory with, and judging from the number of brickbats etc. the irate would-be slumberers hurl at me during the night, it must be true.”

— Thomas Orde-Lees
