Drinking much and long leads to unavoidable consquences.Will it be credited,that,in a corner of the very dining-room, there is a certain convenient piece of furniture,to be used by anybody who wants it. The operation is performed very deliberately and undisguisedly,as a matter of course,and occassions no interruption of the conversation. I once asked why such a convenience was not placed out of the way in an adjoining room.and was answered that men of weak heads or stomachs took advantage of the opportunity to make their escape,shamefully, before they were quite drunk and it was to guard against such that this nice expedient had been invented.
Good Lord!Can you imagine the sight of Mr Hurst.....I cannot speak!
