Somerville says :
In mind compos'd he sucks, thick curling clouds
Of smoke around his reeking temples play.
Joyous he sits, and, impotent of thought,
Pufft away care and sorrow from his heart.
BUT some others have a say in this matter, and I will
recommend that while the puffing is going on, I
may be allowed to suggest that I have now on hand more
than 300 000 Cigars of various brands, and some olthem
very fine ; so let all those who delight in a glorious old
Cigar, call in and supply themselves with a box or more.
