The name given to the tight trousers worn by some Regency gentlemen, such as the notorious Beau Brummell and his ‘dandy’ followers, as they showed off their leg muscles.
To make Coffee, by a simple and good method -Pour boiling water in the proportion of six cupfuls to one cupful of freshly ground coffee, but double the quantity for foreigners. Let this be on the point of boiling for two or three minutes, held over the fire, and taken off at pleasure, so as to keep up the temperature, but not permit any violent ebullition. Pour out a cupful two or three times, returning it; and set the coffee pot on the hob to keep hot, while the coffee clears. Good cream is essential to good English coffee. Margaret Dods
