“‘The old Coney is gone, darlin’,’ I says to her. ‘Everything moves.
When a man’s glad it’s not scenes of sadness he wants. ‘Tis a greater
Coney we have here, but we couldn’t see it till we got in the humour for
it. Next Sunday, Norah darlin’, we’ll see the new place from end to end.”
~ O.Henry, The Greater Coney
