Essay: "Going Out for a Walk." Max Beerbohm.

Review: Somebody, when Beerbohm is in the country, always wants him to go for a walk. He always excuses himself by saying he has to write a letter. However, that excuse won’t work if it’s a Sunday. The post does not pick up on Sunday. He doesn’t want to go for a walk. He would rather ride.” The essay concludes with “…I never will go out for a walk.”
