Diary of a Resurrectionist, Monday 20th January 1812

Monday 20th
At home all day & night, Butler & Jack got drunk.

Butler and Jack Harnett were cronies, both close and devoted followers of Crouch (at least at this time – Jack Harnett and Crouch were to fall out over money by the 1820s).

Bransby Cooper comments about Bulter that he was “very much addicted to gin. When drunk, “he was a great boaster and inclined to be violent; but was easily cooled down with good-humoured treatment”.

Currently, the content of this blog is a personal project to repost and comment on the diary of 19th century Resurrectionist Joseph Naples 200 years from the time it was written.
