"Thus I became their [workmates] news-purveyor, ie. I every morning gave them an account of what I had just been reading in the yesterday"s newspaper. I read this at a coffee shop, where I took an early breakfast on my way to work. These shops were but just then becoming general... The shop I selected was near the bottom of Oxford Street. It was in the direct path by which I made my way to work... The papers I generally preferred to read were the ""British Press"", the ""Morning Chronicle"", and the ""Statesman"". I usually contrived to run over the Parliamentary debates and the foreign news, together with the leading articles. ...My shopmates were much pleased at the extent and variety of the intelligence which I was able to give them about public affairs, and they were the more pleased because I often told them about the contents of Mr. Cobbett"s ""Political Register"", as they were warm admirers of that clever and very intelligible writer."
