Confessions of Con Cregan free pdf Excerpt from Confessions of Con Cregan: The Irish Gil Blas Was it that I thought well of one story and very meanly of the other, and in consequence was angry at the want of concurrence of my critics? I suspect not. I rather imagine I felt hurt at discovering how little hold I had, in my acknowledged name, on a public with whom I fancied myself on such god terms- and it pained me to see with what little difficulty a new and a nameless man could push for the place I had believed to be my own. "The Daltons" I always wrote, after my habit, in the morning- I never turned to "Con Cregan" until nigh midnight- and I can still remember the widely different feelings with which I addressed myself to the task I liked, and to a story which, in the absurd fashion I have mentioned, was associated with wounded self-love. It is scarcely necessary for me to say that there was no plan whatever in this book. My notion was, that "Con Cregan," once created, would not fail to find adventures. The vicissitudes of daily poverty would beget shifts and contrivances- with these successes would come ambition and daring. Meanwhile a growing knowledge of life would develop his character, and I should soon see whether he would win the silver spoon or spoil the horn. I ask pardon in the most humble manner for presuming for a moment to associate my hero with the great original of Le Sage. But I used the word "Irish" adjectively, and with the same amount of qualification that one employs to a diamond, and indeed, as I have read it in a London paper, to a "Lord."
