    There he is at Quincy, living in the laper luxury, laying in a cool bed at no expense, eating up your taxes and mine.

    What does laper luxury mean?
    Please help. Thank you.

    It should be 'living in the lap of luxury'. This is either a transcription error or a deliberate misspelling by the author to emulate the character's way of speaking.

    Amongst other places, the expression is explained here: in the lap of luxury
