FACTS
FOR THE
KIND-HEARTED OF ENGLAND.

In my twentieth year my first visit was made to London\ue000how long since need not be said, lest I make
discoveries. I arrived at the "Swan withtwo necks," in Lad Lane, to the imminent peril of my ownone, on
entering the yard of that then famous hostelry, the gate of which barely allowed admission to the coach
itself\ue001and first set foot on London ground, midst the bustle of some half-dozen coaches, either preparing for
exit, or discharging their loads of passengers and parcels.

Four "insides" were turned out, and eight "outsides" turned in\ue002I, amongst the unfortunates of the latter class, taking possession of the nearest point I could to the coffee-room fire. It is to be recollected that in those days one had butfour chances in his favour, against perhaps forty applicants for the interior of the mail\ue003and he who was driven in winter, by necessity of time, to the top of a coach in Liverpool, and from thence to Lad Lane, and found himself in the coffee-room there unfrozen, might be well contented. So felt I, then,\ue004and doubly so now, as I think of the dangers of flood, and road,[4] and neck, which I encountered in a twenty-six hours' journey, exposed to the "pelting of the pitiless storm,"\ue005for it snowed half the way.

Dinner discussed, and its etceteras having been partaken, in full consciousness of the comforts which
surrounded me, contrasted with the discomforts, &c. from which I had escaped,\ue006I sank into an agreeable
reverie; and during a vision,\ue007I must not call it a doze,\ue008composed of port wine and walnuts\ue009the
invigorating beams of Wallsend coal\ue00aan occasional fancied jolt of the coach\ue00bthe three mouthfuls of dinner,
by the name, I had gotten at Oxford\ue00cand the escape of my one neck, when, goose as I was, I presented it
where two seemed to be an essential by the sign of the habitation and the dangers of the gate,\ue00dI was aroused
