the 32 Cravats according to Mr. Hollingshead

John Hollingshead was an actor  and writer, who wrote this piece some time before 1883.  It is a comic piece that largly paraphrases LeBlanc, written inthe style of an Octegenarian dandy, decrying the slovenliness of the young. The major difference between this an LeBlanc is that Hollingshead anglicises the names.
