Marryat, F. (n.d.). Olla Podrida. Retrieved from

Reader, did you ever feel in that peculiarly distressing state of mind in which one oppressing idea displaces or colours every other, absorbing, intermingling with, empoisoning, and, like the filth of the harpy, turning every thing into disgust —when a certain incubus rides upon the brain, as the Old Man of the Mountain did upon the shoulders of Sinbad, burdening, irritating, and rendering existence a misery —when, looking around, you see but one object perched everywhere and grinning at you — when even what you put into your mouth tastes of but that one something, and the fancied taste is so unpleasant as almost to prevent deglutition —when every sound which vibrates in your ear appears to strike the same discordant note, and all and every thing will remind you of the one only thing which you would fain forget; —have you ever felt any thing like this, reader? If you have not, then thank God, by way of grace, before you out with your knife and fork and begin to cut up the contents of these pages. I have been and am now suffering under one of these varieties of Phobias, and my disease is a Politicophobia, I will describe the symptoms.
