On Friday (an ominous day for travelling, as Mr. Sheridan used to say), in a post coach and four we set off for Douay...We, however, were unable to stay at Douay, and jogged merrily towards Cambray, armed, not with pistols, but with bottles of sparkling Champagne, in the pockets of our carriage, and we drank the health of the inhabitants of every chateau which we passed ; Johnstone and myself singing all the way, and repeating, while we quaffed, the translation of Dr. Aldridge's Latin epigram of Causae Bibendi. "If on my theme I rightly think, There are five reasons why men should drink ; Good wine a friend or being dry, Or, lest one should be by and by, Or, any other reason why."
