What is satirized in this excerpt from Mark Twain's "The £1,000,000 Bank-Note"? I was pretty nervous, in fact, pretty badly frightened, though, of course, I was no way in fault; but I knew men well enough to know that when they find they've given a tramp a million-pound bill when they thought it was a one-pounder, they are in a frantic rage against him instead of quarreling with their own near-sightedness, as they ought.
