Title The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists
Page 59
Chapter Nimrod: a Mighty Hunter before the Lord
Text Mr Hunter, as he was called to his face and as he was known to his brethren at the Shining Light Chapel, where he was superintendant of the Sunday School, or `Misery' or `Nimrod'; as he was named behind his back by the workmen over whom he tyrannized, was the general or walking foreman of `manager' of the firm whose card is herewith presented to the reader:

Builders, Decorators, and General Contractors
Estimates given for General Repairs to House Property
First-class Work only at Moderate Charges

There were a number of sub-foremen or `coddies', but Hunter was THE foreman.
