NEWSLETTER - NOVEMBER 2021

NEWS

I found this ad on the facsimile of the front page of 'The Manchester Guardian' of May 5th 1821, a celebration of 200 years of publishing the newspaper. I've appropriated it - with apologies.

L. BREEN,
Maker of Fine Graffiti and Arte Politic,
Farnborough Gate,

IMPRESSED with gratitude for favours already received, begs to offer his sincere thanks to those Friends who have so liberally supported him, as well as to the Public in general, and hopes by continuing to display his best works, and an unremitting attention, to merit a continuance of their favours.

L.B. embraces this opportunity of informing his Friends and the Public, that he has a new handsome Portfolio, &c., hereunder-mentioned and continues to pay every attention to the to the views, of said Friends and Public, on the most enjoyable terms. (Well, sort of!)

Len Breen

NOTES FROM THE CHOOK-HOUSE

My beloved son, the well known to many of you, KFBB, graduated from Cambridge University, where his affiliation was Jesus College, much to the embarrassment of his atheistic father LVFB. When Jesus College decided to return the Benin Bronze, 'The OKUKOR' - which had been gifted to it years ago by some 'son of a looter' - to the people of Benin, Nigeria, it seemed appropriate to celebrate this with a typically Aussi headline [as above].
