THE MAN WITH AN APPETITE. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 3 June 1847
THE MAN WITH AN APPETITE. I never, for the life o' me, could understand why a man of ten stone should pay as much for coach hire as one of twenty. There's neither reason nor virtue in it; and the stage coach proprie tors must be v set of unjust jolterheads, not to alter it. The rogues weigh your dead stock—your luggage, and, if it be what they call " over weight," they make no scruple of charging you so much a pound for every pound above a certain number of pounds, but they take no account at all of overweight in living luggage, and will charge just as much for carrying a little whipper snapper of a passenger, whose entire corpus, in full dress might be tucked into a conch pocket, as they will for a great, over-fed fellow, whose empty waistcoat would button round a haystack! If a man will stuff himself till he's as big as a roasted Manningtree ox with a pudding in his belly, let him do so— there is no statute to the contrary thereof, that I know of; but I see no reason why be should...

They fitted up nn old cabin, (ihe best house they could procure) nnd opened n store; they have been selling goods rapidly, nnd feel so much encouraged, that they nre noxious to remain, provided their wives will consent to leave their cily homes, nnd reside in the West. The ladies were sent for to come out on a visit ; they arrived safely in nil Iheir cily finery, nnd great hopes are entertained that the three families will make ibis their home. They are nt present boarding nl (he Hotel (we hft%e bul one), but if the ladies can onl, be induced to remain, satiable houses will be built in the Spring. Mv good husband ...
