Evidence

"After Tea I took a stroll through the town and then went to Collingwood on my return I looked in at the Reading Room of the Mechanics, amused myself by waiting a considerable time for the relinquishing of the Argus by one or other of two very slow old gentlemen who each had a copy and spite my impatience coolly kept turning over page after page as if they were not only deeply interested in the news but also wrapped in every advertisement." "I got it at last, not however from either of them for they were as busy as ever when I left, for all the world like two of Madame Tussaud?s clever Wax Figures with a little internal machinery, that turned the paper over at certain intervals, in watching them I had overlooked a third copy which I now got hold of & then found ""there was nothing in it""."
