Reportage, Spoof


Zoological Gardens, Religion

    Reports on the appearance of some 'strange' visitors to the Zoological Society Gardens who dress in dark and 'sad' colours. Implies that these are followers of Charles H Spurgeon who have read a report in the Walworth Chronicle suggesting that the preacher is to be seen daily swimming in the pond. Explains that the word 'Sturgeon' has been mis-spelt in the report as 'Spurgeon'.
