St. Patrick , “let him have it.”


St. Patrick  , “let him have it.”

Mark Twain , “St. Patrick had no politics; his sympathies lay with the right–that was politics enough. When he came across a reptile, he forgot to inquire whether he was a Democrat or a Republican, but simply exalted his staff and ‘let him have it.'”
– Letter Read at a Dinner of the Knights of St. Patrick, 16 March 1876
