Punch,  27 (1854), 92.

Sanctified Slander upon Punch



News-Commentary, Drollery


Gas Chemistry, Meteorology, Electricity, Education, Religion

    Asks the author of an English Journal of Education article on the unholy 'atmosphere' outside the home on Sunday, to explain 'the composition of that atmosphere which is capable of hailing a day otherwise than for hailing for twenty-four hours' and which is made up of chemical compounds other than those out of which it is known to be composed. Also asks the author to explain 'how the atmosphere desecrates the day by hailing it with Punch'. This is probably a response to Anon 1854.
