OR THE LONDON CHARIVARI.
October 15, 1892.
'ARRY AT 'ARRYGATE.
DEAR CHARLIE,--The post-mark, no doubt, will surprise you. I'm
still at the "Crown,"
Though I said in my last--wot wos true--I was jest on the mizzle
'Ad a letter from nunky, old man, with another small cheque. Good
So I'm in for a fortnit' more sulphur and slosh, afore doing a bunk.
Ah! I've worked it, my pippin, I've worked it; gone in for
hexcursions all round,
To Knaresborough, Bolton, and Fountains. You know, dear old pal,
I'll be bound,
As hantiquities isn't my 'obby, and ruins don't fetch me, not much!
I can't see their "beauty," no more than the charms of some dowdy
A Castle, all chunnicks of stone, or a Habbey, much out of repair,
A skelinton Banquetting 'All, and a bit of a broken-down stair,
May appear most perticular "precious" to them as the picteresk cops;
But give me the sububs and stucco, smart villas, and
"Up to date" is our _siney quay non_ in these days. _Fang der
sickle_, yer know.
Wich is French for the same, I persoom, and them phrases is now
all the go.
Find 'em sprinkled all over the papers; in politics, fashion, or
If you carnt turn 'em slick round yer tongue, you ain't modern, or
knowing, or smart.
