The Horse on the Table



News-Commentary, Drollery



    Discusses a Morning Post report of the horse meat dishes eaten by Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire and 'his disciples' at a recent banquet. Those present included a 'Dr. Yvan' (probably Melchior H Yvan), who is said to have eaten meat from all types of domestic and wild animals. Notes that this 'horse meal' was an experimental one but expects its readers would prefer to see its horse 'running with speed than with gravy'.
