Abstract
  • British Museum No. 7823“A much overloaded stagecoach is driven 1. to r. ; the horses are galloping, on each is an amateur postillion. On the roof is a morfstrous pile of trunks and packing-cases, &c., some inscribed White Leady Candles^ GlasSy Soapy with a barrel of Porter on the top. Four persons are seated on the roof behind the box ; one says / suppoze bye & bye the Passengers will all ride on the outside & the Luggage within. The driver is a slim undergraduate in cap and gown ; one man sits next him ; at their feet, in a receptacle for parcels, &c., are four persons whose heads appear. In the much-extended basket behind the coach are seventeen persons, one of whom is a giant ; he receives attentions from two women, one saying, Pray Sir are you married. An Irishman says, / say we have just got the game 31 my BaySy tho' the tall Scotchman weighs as much as four. A Scot answers. Hoot mon, I had rather Twanty Muckle Scotchman were on the Tap then sae mony Kists. The one inside passenger, wearing a coat with a quadruple cape and probably the coachman, leans out of the window, saying, Fm an inside Passenger & gave him leave to Drive if he should brake a few Necks its as the act Directs. On the off-leader a sailor sits facing the horse's tail. Next him is an Irishman whose hat the driver has just flicked off with his whip ; a paper flies in the air behind him : Address Highness . . comg to the Throne. He says, by Jasus they told me the Address would be in before the Coach, but I think I see it going back again I wish I was in its Pocket. Behind him on the near wheeler sits another Irishman flourishing a club and saying, Arah Honey I never rode outside of a Coach before. The man on the off- wheeler clutches the reins desperately. The road leads up a very steep hill, a signpost (r.) pointing to Turn over Hill. The coach is inscribed Holyhead” (Source: George)
