    . . . Entering the narrow hall, . . . the olfactories [sense of smell] are at once startled by a pungent odor, so strong in some instances as to make a sensitive person sneeze “on sight,” or rather “on smell.” This is, of course, the tobacco. . . . It was said that in cold weather the odor was so overpowering and pungent, doors and windows being closed, that persons unaccustomed thereto were compelled to shut their eyes in pain. Yet about 4,000 people eat, cook and sleep, as well as work, in these places. Young children fall asleep from the narcotic effects of the pervading odor. Women suffer greatly from it. . . . —The New York Sun, September 26, 1874
