In my last blog, "T. W." in writing to the editor of The Sporting Magazine, in May 1802, made the point that not all Fashionable Sportsmen were sportsmen in the true meaning of the phrase. Rather, they were less than honourable gentlemen, and might better have been called "coxcombs", "loungers" or even "ramshackle fellows".
"T. W." went on at length:
no one else can reach the fire...
And there you are, a contemporary account of a sort of man who was not a sportsman at all, but a much less admirable sort of fellow.
I'm delighted that you found your way to my blog! I hope you will find tidbits of information here to interest you, something perhaps to spur your curiosity in the Regency period, or the name of an author or a book title that will provide you with hours of enjoyment.
