    Presents Mr Punch's reasons 'Why it is so much better' to stay in London during the holiday season. These include 'You can have your children home from school for the Michaelmas holidays, and even an extra week, during which you can examine them carefully as to their progress, and take them to the British Museum, and that of Practical Geology, also to the Thames Tunnel'.
