I have already computed the charge of nursing a beggar's child (in which list I reckon all cottagers, labourers, and four-fifths of the farmers) to be about two shillings per annum, rags included; and (I believe no gentleman would repine to give ten shillings for the carcass of a good fat child), which, as I have said, will make four dishes of excellent nutritive meat, when he hath only some particular friend, or his own family to dine with him. (Thus the squire will learn to be a good landlord, and grow popular among his tenants), the mother will have eight shillings neat profit, and be fit for work till she produces another child.
Those who are more thrifty (as I must confess the times require) may flea the carcass; (the skin of which, artificially dressed, will make admirable gloves for ladies, and summer boots for fine gentlemen).
(As to our City of Dublin, shambles may be appointed for this purpose, in the most convenient parts of it), and butchers we may be assured will not be wanting; (although I rather recommend buying the children alive, and dressing them hot from the knife, as we do roasting pigs.)
