Thomas Irving : Introductory Address

'I attended the first meeting of the Philathelic Society - There were many new members, but the society seemed to have undergone no improvement. Jamie Thompson still speaks with his former pertinacity. Andrew made a harangue as vapid as ever, Thomas Irving read an introductory address, and the rest were all in readiness to 'nod assent and smile'[.] I left them with little regret.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Thomas Carlyle      Print: BookManuscript: Sheet
