"Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. Fill your glass again, with a merry face and contented heart." Charles Dickens (1812-1870) "Sketches by Boz" (1836-1837).

A Bohemian problem with the obligatory three model mates. White has to handle the attack on his Queen by 1.. Ne7 and the checking threat 2.. g2+ after 1.. g3. The key 1. Ba6 threatens quietly 2. Bd3 3. Bc2#. On 1.. Ne7 the wQ is sacrificed by 2. Bb5 3. Bxa4# and on 1.. g3 2. Be2+ Ke1 3. Qxg3#.
