The Attache; or, Sam Slick in England –
T’other Eend of the Gun

by Thomas Chandler Haliburton


" ‘Well, Squire,’ said he, ‘I am glad, too, you are agoin’ to England along with me: we will take rise out of John Bull (Great Briton, GB), won’t we ? We’ve hit Blue-nose (Nova Scotia) and Brother Johnathan (GB), both pretty considerably tarnation hard, and John (GB)has split his sides with larfter (sic). Let’s tickle him now, by feeling his own short ribs, and see how he will like it; we’ll soon see whose hide is the thickest, his’n or ourn, won’t we ? Let’s see whether he will say chee, chee, chee, when he gets to t’other eend of the gun."
