Pagina 64 - As to the return of his health and vigour, were you here, you might inquire of his haymakers ; but as to his temperance, I can answer that (for one whole day ) we have had nothing for dinner but mutton broth, beans, and bacon, and a barn-door fowl.

ARCHDEACON: — Though my proportion of this epistle should be but a sketch in miniature, yet I take up this half page, having paid my club with the good company both for our dinner of chops and for this paper. The poets will give you lively descriptions in their way ; I shall only acquaint you with that which is directly my province.
