Thackeray, W. M. (n.d.). Tremendous Adventures of Major Gahagan. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Seeing, I say, this simple visiting ticket, the world will avoid any of those awkward mistakes as to my person, which have been so frequent of late. There has been no end to the blunders regarding this humble title of mine, and the confusion thereby created. When I published my volume of poems, for instance, the Morning Post newspaper remarked ?that the Lyrics of the Heart, by Miss Gahagan, may be ranked among the sweetest flowrets of the present spring season.? The Quarterly Review, commenting upon my ?Observations on the Pons Asinorum? (4to, London, 1836), called me ?Doctor Gahagan,? and so on. It was time to put an end to these mistakes, and I have taken the above simple remedy.
