Atones For The Unpoliteness Of A Former toms outlet online Chapter,
Which Deserted A Lady Most Unceremoniously.
As it would be by no means seemly in a humble author to 
keep so mighty a personage as a beadle waiting, with his 
back to the fire, and the skirts of his coat gathered up 
under his arms, until such time as it might suit his pleasure to 
relieve him; and as it would still less become his station, or his 
gallantry, to involve in the same neglect a lady on whom that 
beadle had looked with an eye of tenderness and affection, and in 
whose ear he had whispered sweet words, which, coming from 
such a quarter, might well thrill the bosom of maid or matron of 
whatsoever degree; the historian whose pen traces these words— 
trusting that he knows his place, and that he entertains a 
becoming reverence for those upon earth to whom high and 
important authority is delegated—hastens to pay them that 
respect which their position demands, and to treat them with all 
that duteous ceremony which their exalted rank, and (by 
consequence) great virtues, imperatively claim at his hands. 
Towards this end, indeed, he had purposed to introduce, in this 
place, a dissertation touching the divine right of beadles, and 
elusidative of the position, that a beadle can do no wrong; which 
could not fail to have been both pleasurable and profitable to the 
right-minded reader, but which he is unfortunately compelled, by 
want of time and space, to postpone to some more convenient and 
fitting opportunity; on the arrival of which, he will be prepared to 

show, that a beadle properly constituted—that is to say, a 
parochial beadle, attached to a parochial workhouse, and 
attending in his official capacity the parochial church—is, in right 
and virtue of his office, possessed of all the excellences and best 
qualities of humanity; and that to none of those excellences, can 
mere companies’ beadles, or court-of-law beadles, or even chapel-
of-ease beadles (save the last, and they in a very lowly and inferior 
degree), lay the remotest sustainable claim.
