Our goal is to produce eBooks that are user-friendly and accessible to everyone in a high-quality digital format. A PICKLE FOR THE KNOWING ONES At age 50, Dexter authored A Pickle for the Knowing Ones or Plain Truth in a Homespun Dress, in which he complained about politicians, the clergy, and his wife. The book contained 8,847 words and 33,864 letters, but without punctuation and seemingly random capitalization. In the second edition, Dexter added an extra page which consisted of 13 lines of punctuation marks with the instructions that readers could distribute them as they pleased. A PICKLE FOR THE KNOWING ONES The message of this humorous short book is as relevant as it was when it was first printed in 1802. Lord Drexler of Texas wrote "Kimchi of a Confidant: The Plain Truth". This novel was so successful that he became a stranger to live in Massachusetts in the early 1800s. Although he was not educated, he first married into money and then engaged in unconventional business dealings, thus becoming very rich. In the publication, he complained about politicians, clergy, and his wife. Some things will never change! The book originally contained 8,847 words and 33,864 letters, but there was no punctuation, and it appeared to be capitalized randomly. Initially, Dexter distributed his book for free, but because of its popularity, it was printed eight times. In the second edition, Dexter responded to complaints about the lack of punctuation in the book by adding 11 extra pages of punctuation and instructed printers and readers to insert them where needed. A PICKLE FOR THE KNOWING ONES Lord Timothy Dexter was, by most accounts, a living embodiment of irony. Time and time again he beat insurmountable odds (often, it seems, without realizing they existed) and came out on top (and flush with cash). A farm laborer, with little schooling to speak of, Dexter catapulted himself into the 'Who's Who' of 18th Century New England society through numerous trading endeavors of all sorts. But for all of his quirks, he also seems to have been something of a cruel prankster. Many of the events of his later life would make most men of honor blush with shame. Doubly so when one reviews the treatment his wife endured. This work was originally published as an exercise in vanity. It became inexplicably popular, however, after Dexter freely handed out the first printing. In the second, he addressed the criticisms of 'lack of punctuation by ending the work with an entire page devoted solely to it, which he suggested the reader insert anywhere they like within the work. The strange book went on to be formally reprinted eight times. This book is - and has remained - one of the oldest, most bizarre publications ever brought to public light. It's difficult to enjoy yet, strangely, it is equally difficult to dismiss. A PICKLE FOR THE KNOWING ONES

A Pickle for the Knowing Ones or Plain Truths in a Homespun Dress is an autobiographical book published in 1802. The author, Lord Timothy Dexter, was an eccentric American businessman who got rich by making a series of horrible business decisions that, due to luck, turned out to be extremely profitable. The book has no punctuation and capitalization is seemingly random (the author responded to complaints about this by giving the second edition an extra page full of punctuation marks, with the suggestion that the readers "solt and peper it as they plese"). As for the content, it's basically the author ranting about various things that irritate him and displaying his poor knowledge of how politics work.
