The Four Million

O Henry

(William Sidney Porter — 1862-1910)
Not very long ago some one invented the assertion that there were
only "Four Hundred" people in New York City who were really worth
noticing. But a wiser man has arisen — the census taker — and his
larger estimate of human interest has been preferred in marking out
the field of these little stories of "The Four Million." —
