Thomas Gaspey : The Grand Juror

'My Dear Sir, As you have long since ceased to be ?a colt? in the periodical paddock, you will not be surprised at my not having been able to find room in the next No. for that same paper. If you will leave it in my good keeping until the 28th. (February is a short month) we will astonish the Grand Jurors with it. I have laughed very heartily over it, and although I have never served (for I always pay my taxes when they won?t call any longer, in order to get a bad name in the parish and so escape all honors) I can see it is true to the life.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Charles Dickens      Manuscript: Unknown
