GILPIN.
.... ....-


/ "= c .,h.,:,-. -.. "" -, -,. -; -'. .-

JOHN GILPIN was a citizen of great credit and renown. He was
a Linen Draper, and lived in Cheapside, in London; more than
that. he was Captain of a train-band. He was in his shop from
morning till night, and never had a holiday. So one day he borrowed
a horse to go out for a ride to the Bell, at Edmonton.









































Just as he was starting, three customer-, came in, and he.turned
back to serve them. His wife, her sister, and the children had gone on
first, in a post-chaise; and as they were to have dinner, Mrs. GILPIN
had filled two stone bottles with wine JOHN slipped his long sword
belt through the handles of these bottle, and strapped the belt round
his waist, so that he had a bottle on each side, but they were covered
with his long red cloak, so that did not matter.
2













































The wor-t of it was, that JOHN was not used to ride any but a very
quiet bori.e, and this one, which he had borrowed from a friend, was
rather skittish, so that when he began to gallop, and poor GILPIN took
hold of the mane to keep him-elf steady, -away they both went neck
or nothing, and away went JOHN'S hat and wig, and worse still, away
\ ent hiii long cloik. He little thought of running such a rig when
he set out, but, all he could do was to cling to the horse's neck.
3


I









































People thought that he rode for a wager. Dogs barked, boys
shouted, turnpike men flung the gates open, and both the bottles
were smashed, so that the wine ran down and looked like blood.
Mrs. GILPIN and her friends were waiting at the Bell at Edmonton,
when JOHN flew by. "Stop Dinner's ready !" they cried. I
can't," said he, and away he went, the horse not staying for a
moment, but going faster than ever.

Just before they reached the town of Ware, the beast suddenly
pulled up before the door of a house. When the master of the house
came out,-who should it be but the very man who had lent JOHN the
horse. He laughed heartily at poor GILPIN, and lent him a hat and a
grand flowing wig to go back in. All this time, poor Mrs. GILPIN and
her sister, and the children were in a fright; so the poor lady called the
post-boy, who had driven their chaise, and showed him half-a-crown.

IN il ___________________________


"This shall be your's," she said, when you bring back my husband
safe and well." The post-boy had one of his horses out in a minute,
jumped on to its back, and galloped off to find JOHN GILPIN. This
was all very well, but 'presently, he met JOHN coming back again, in
his fiicend's hat and a fine wig, hanging down behind. Thinking
ne h;d better take charge of horse and rider together, he tried to
catch the reins, and this set GILPIN'S horse off faster than ever.

Away he went, the post-boy after him, as though they rode for
their lives; the flowing wig was left' in a hedge, and the hat in a
ditch. Some huntsmen coming across a field, saw the chase, gave a
great shout, and joined in the pursuit: so did butcher boys on their
ponies, and everybody who could follow. Once more the turnpike
men threw their gates open; still thinking it was a race. So it was,
and JOHN GILPIN won it too, for he got first to town.
7












































The horse never stopped till he had taken him to his own door
in Cheapside, and then poor GILPIN managed to slide off his back.
"You villain !" said JOHN, shaking his fist at him, the next time I
go out I'll leave you at home." He kept his word, for when he took
another journey to Edmonton he went by the coach.
