Sound Advice

"I should take some cleft sticks with you. I remember Hitchcock - Sir Jocelyn Hitchcock, a man who used to work for me; smart enough fellow in his own way, but limited, very little historical backing - I remember him saying that in Africa he always sent his dispatches in a cleft stick. It struck me as a very useful tip. Take plenty."

Evelyn Waugh - Scoop (1936)
