Quote of the day

In trusting to the strength of his Constitution and neglecting a proper manner of living, Mr Strangeways has allowed a good tenement to fall into disrepair, but I hope it may be kept tolerably tight for a long time to come if the landlord will be pleased to give a little attention to it.

(Dr Cullen, 2 October, 1769)
