Speaking of an old school acquaintance:
"... Was his lie to me a hoax, a practical joke? Was he paying off some old score against my brother? Or was he (as I now think more likely) simply what our ancestors called a Rattle, a man from whose mouth information, true and false, flows out all day long without consideration, almost without volition?"
