Never in my whole life did I more fully appreciate the benefits of our own good English customs, or feel in better humour with my country in general, than when I sat down in a clean parlour by myself, to the snug dinner prepared for me by the widow Wilcocks, landlaldy of a comfortable inn in the good town of Windsor. How different from an American table d’hote’ where you are deafened by the clamour, and disgusted by the selfish gluttony of your companions, where you must either bolt your victuals, or starve, from the ravenous rapidity with which everything is despatched (dispatched); and where the inattention of the servants is only to be equalled by their insolence and familiarity.

Frederick Fitzgerald De Roos, Personal Narrative of Travels in the United States and Canada, London, 1827
