William Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair”; Inheritance

“My dear sir, you ought to know that every elder brother looks upon the cadets of the house as his natural enemies, who deprive him of so much ready money which ought to be his by his right. I have heard George Mac Turk, Lord Bajazet’s eldest son say that if he had his will when he came to his title, he would do what the sultans do, and clear the estate by chopping of all his younger brothers’ heads at once : and so the case is more or less, with them all. I will tell you that they are all Turks in their hearts.”
