in consequence of the missive, The Loiterer, penned by Linden
I wanted to post this elsewhere, but this seems a good enough place.
I laughed hysterically after reading this. But no one else seemed to find it as funny as I did.
Wanted - A Curacy in a good sporting country, near a pack of fox-hounds, and in a sociable neighbourhood; it must have a good house and stables and few acres of meadow ground would be very agreeable. - To prevent trouble, the stipend must not be less than 80l. - The Advertiser has no objection to undertaiking three, four or five Churches of a Sunday, but will not engage where there is any weekly duty. Whatever has such a oen to dispose of, may suit themselves by sening a line directed A.B. to be left at the Tuft Coffee House, or the gentleman may be spoken with any Tuesday morning at Tatterfall's Betting Room.
That must have been some family!
