Mr. Joseph Hanson, The Haberdasher
These are good days for great heroes; so far at least as regards the general spread and universal diffusion of celebrity. The name of Wellington, on the other hand, is necessarily in every man's mouth at every hour of every day. He is the universal godfather of every novelty, whether in art, in literature, or in science. Streets, bridges, places, crescents, terraces, and railways, on the land; steam-boats on the water; balloons in the air, are all distinguished by that honoured appellation.
