Provides advice to tourists about suitable clothes, railway habits, and conversation. Its 'Scheme for a Railway Conversation with an entire stranger' suggests that the tourist boast about and attempt to imitate (for the benefit of his unworldly stranger) his somewhat unlikely experiences on the underground railway. He should also discuss Henry Dircks and John H Pepper's 'Ghost' (which he attempts to show 'the way it's done') and his ascent in James Glaisher and Henry T Coxwell's balloon.
