AbstractHistoryArchive Description

When first I met Daley (it was in Melbourne; at Richmond I think) I found him surrounded by a house with some ducks. Being always hospitable, he offered to kill the ducks for me. But he said the ducks belonged to the landlord and the rent was overdue; so Daley was not hospitable, and I lost my roast duck.
