A Sedan Chair

The sedan chair is borne by two men and is not an uncomfortable mode of locomotion ; all things considered it is the most agreeable if one does not wish to go on foot, and has an aversion to a violent shaking up. The sedan chair waiting at the door of the theatres near the conclusion of the performance presents a curious spectacle, and reminds you of the stories of London two hundred years ago when chairs and link boys were the mode.
