The coachman spends his Sabbath hours in the pious occupation of cracking his whip at the little boys who are playing marbles on the side- walk, reading the Sunday papers, and saying hard words at the flies which make his horses shake their nettings off- while the genteel footman goes to sleep in the carriage, with his boots out of the window, and only arouses from his slumber in time to open the door for my lady, as she comes from her courtly devotions.- "Doesticks, What He Says", Q. K. Philander Doesticks.
