RED TAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 22 December 1870
RED TAPE. An Antiquarian, writing in Melbourne Punch, of Thursday last, thus discourses: This great institution has taken firm root in the colony. Its altars are in the Govern ment offices, and its high priests are the lineal descendants of the immortal Tite Barnacle. With Red Tape and its ministen ing angel, Circumlocution, every blessing which progress can confer is possible. The theory of the transmutation of baser metals into gold receives a practical illustration in every day life under the subtle influence of Red Tape. It can transform a muff into a mitgistrate, and elevate a potboy to a Drofesl sion. It surrounds the official with an impenetrable halo, and, like charity, covers a multitude of sins. Impertinent inquirers after what are stupidly called natural or purchased rights, are instantly extinguished by it.

The advertisements make me feel good all over; every house to let is the most splendiferous, commodious, best locate4 and has the best fixings in the world-ever shop sells things for nothing, and finds strings and wrapping paper gratis. There are lots of butlers of undeniable characters, who thoi roughly understand their business, and are ready to serve you if there are only under, lings enough to do all the work. Ladies' helps that are" complete milliners, tip top hairdressers, and can speak French if you can't understand their English. They only left their last places because their mistresses Here something peculiar in their tempers, not liking to keep a dog and do their own barking. And there are pious young weti nurses for Christian families, and economical cooks that have studied under French artists, and are up to the dodges ...
