one of your craft, and now I will relate to you a
case where a whole office, with the exception of
two or three, were most especially sold. A gen2

loon, walked into one of our "printing offices,"
and with all the pomp and importance, that is
characteristic of such Lords', invited the ..whole
establishment down, to partake of a lunch ; and
as printers are very polite, fearing that, they
mightinsult the kind donor should they refuse,"
they all with one accord accepted the sanfe, and
that evening, after they had finished their days
toil, was set airt fOr;the visit; the topic" of .con
