1825 LIVERPOOL Streets ~ No.20

 

It's now over a week since I last went for a walk round the streets looking for relatives. However, I have not been idle; apart from lime-washing the walls of the wash-house, black-leading the range, replacing some loose slates on the 'three-holer' at the bottom of the back yard and relaying some cobbles in the back entry ~ I have also been making lists of some relatives of some of my friends in distant parts; and depositing them at the Dock's Office for transportation by the Mail Packets. Today though, a small wooden crate arrived and inside was my new pair of leather boots made by a well-known cordwainer in Lime Street ~ so I am off to 'run them in'. As the walk today will be a long one, my wife has prepared me a lunch of home-made bread, best Lancashire Cheese, some fruit and a large stone bottle of best ale. We start with:-

Phew! I was well and truly knackered! I did not plan today's perambulations at all well. I finished up about three miles from home (as the crow flies), so hailing a passing brewery dray, hauled by two shire horses, I got a lift as far as my favourite tavern, where, luck would have it, the draymen had an ale delivery. Needless to say, no invitation was required to get me inside........ and the rest I leave to your imagination. My next visit will be to the Docks to see my seafaring friends........................
