Not illustrated. 1801 edition. Excerpt: ...or your flashman should ever go astray, you will im mediately know on what part of the town to dash after him, and be enabled to take vengeance on your rival's countenance. If you find him paying his court to another female, the gay deceiver can have nothing to plead in excuse, . and )rou will get rid of a gentleman who, at the best of times, is but a troublesome guest. Make yourselves, therefore, I entreat you, perfect mistresses of this pious man's writings, and tread in his paths with unerring attention: after which you may study two other pious Works, Bunyaris Shove to a Heavy-breeched Christian, and Hea ven taken by Storm by a Repentant Sinner; with the assistance of these two, in addition to the pious Huntington's Bank of Faith, you must shortly get into the high road to heaven, from which if you ever wander, " the devil himself (to use his expression) must be within your bodies, and Rabab have full possession of your soul." Be mindful that you constantly frequent the Tabernacle, in preference to the Church of your established religion, and in preference to the rational sermons preached by bishops, deans, and other dignified clergymen of the established Church of England; seek far and wide the pious -nd instructive harangues of the following enlightened and righteous men, who all serve in the bowels of Christ, whe ther they deliver their pious instructions and exhortations to repentance and faith either in tub or pulpit, in tabernacle, or in the high-ways, in a cart, or from an hay-cock: Jtev. Mr. Norman, Dealer in old clothes. Mr. Wilson, Grinder. Mr. Timothy Hands, Sheep's head seller. Mr. Sanders, Coach-painter. Mr. Godston, Pressman. Mr. O--, Mangle-maker. Mr. Downes, Glazier. Mr. Hiskup, Footman to T. G. Esq. more
