DELUSION, n. The father of a most respectable family, comprising Enthusiasm, Affection, Self-denial, Faith, Hope, Charity and many other goodly sons and daughters.   All hail, Delusion! Were it not for thee  The world turned topsy-turvy we should see;  For Vice, respectable with cleanly fancies,  Would fly abandoned Virtue's gross advances.               Mumfrey Mappel. -Ambrose Bierce
