I've seen this quote (or some variation) attributed to a number of different people. Does anyone know who really said it?

"I'm sorry for the length of this letter, but I didn't have the time to make it shorter."

Many thanks.

Ken

The present letter is a very long one, simply because I had no leisure to make it shorter.~BLAISE PASCAL, Pensées, The Provincial Letters, provincial letter 16, p. 571 (1941).
