"As I had some opinion of my son's prudence, I was willing enough to entrust him with this commission; and next morning I perceived his sisters mighty busy in fitting out Moses for the fair--trimming his hair, brushing his buckles, and cocking his hat with pins. The business of the toilet being over, we had the satisfaction of seeing him mounted on the colt, with a deal box before him to bring home groceries in. He had a coat made of that cloth they call 'thunder and lightning,' which, though grown too short, was much too good to be thrown away. His waistcoat was of gosling green, and his sisters had tied his hair with a broad black ribbon."--Vicar of Wakefield. [P. 10.]
