ed with its contents. Let them know therefore that it is a directory to every tavern, coffee-house, eating-house, bun-house, within the metropolis and its environs, bestowing upon all alike the most unequivocal, impartial, and unprovoked commendation.

“No. 8, Fleet Street, almost facing Chancery Lane, up a passage, is Richard’s Tavern and Coffee-House. It is a very retired,
comfortable, and highly respectable place; and is frequented by gentlemen of serious dispositions from the universities, on their oc

have consecrated Leicester Square the mirror in which the
great cities, islands, sieges, battles, bombardments, sea-fights, and
volcanoes, have been panoramically represented. Leicester Square :
the very stones of which have trembled and turned pale under the
marshal tramp and Tartarian mustachios of Ferdinand, Baron Ge-, .
ramb, as he strode into the hotel à-la-Sablonière, curling up the said mustachios, and uttering a peremptory and irrevocable decree
for dinner and wine, selon le bulletin de son excellence le restaurateur.”
