that has nothing to lend. People will
borrow, and some of them with a ven

George Leslie, of Chicago, whose dis
position to borrow has just bean made
public at the expense of numerous
friends. He was connected in some
way with the Massasoit house, as porter
or waiter, and on Friday last conceived
the brilliant idea of borrowing every
thing he could and then leaving. Act

the, space of two hours,, borrowed a vest,
coat, and a pair of pants, and a gold
watch from a friend at the Massasoit

another a coat and an opera glass to go
to the theatre ; from the clerk of the.
