Taste. There neighbour Jenkins, what do you think of my new purchase - there's taste for you. Mr Bronze bought it for me, I think he calls it a Chinese Goss or Joss or something like that- what a fine grim countenance, and do you mind the Higgle-de-griphicks stuck all about him, something very deep and larned in that, I dare say, if one could but make it out - I'll have him put up in the lawn, plump facing the road - D-m me how the stage-coach <?> will stare I should not wonder if it was to frighten some of the fellows off the roof.
