to defray the cost
of my tuition during the whole time that I was at Hampton.
I use heaps of postage stamps, pay the expenses of many indifferent lecturers, defray the cost
of printing reams of pamphlets and hand-bills which hail the laborer flatteringly as the salt of the earth, write and edit a little socialist journal, and do what lies in my power generally.
twelve thousand francs a year to defray the costs
of a household consisting of father, mother, two children, a chambermaid and cook, living on the second floor of a house in the rue Duphot, in an apartment costing two thousand francs a year.
