Excerpt from Chambers's Edinburgh Journal, 1850: Volumes 13-14
La'r rural folk say what they will, we Londoners do contrive to make our winters very comfortable and agreeable: if the atmosphere be murky without, within doors we have bright sea-coal fires, happy faces, and no end of entertaining relaxations, which grow heartier and warmer as the word goes from mouth to mouth Christmas is coming. It would do your eyes good in going along our streets just now, notwithstanding the mire, to see the display in the shops - magazines and mourning, books and bonnets, cakes, carpets, cashmeres, and confectionary. In strife or peace, prosperity or panic, on it goes, the great and multiplex life-whirl of this busy metropolis: nothing seems to disturb it but a deadly epidemic.
