Summary

'Well, we drank "the Boz", with a delectable clatter, which drew from him a goood warm hearted speech, in which he hinted the great advantage of going to America for the pleasure of coming back again – & pleasantly described the embarrassing attentions of the Transatlantickers, who made his private house & private cabin particularly public.'
