JOHN ADAMS.'S SOUTHAMPTON ALMANACK. 316
so ended the smuggling and parole-breaking at Beckton Bunny, with all its petty shifts and contrivances, and miserable haggling for large sums of money with helpless foreigners. The smuggling fraternity were by no means above suspicion. Many a fugitive was first made to drink freely of smuggled brandy or hollands, and was then handed over to some British cruizer or patrol for the sake of an offered reward.
Much more could be said on this and kindred topics, but allotted space and thg reader's patience are alike exhausted. I have tried to describe some of the smuggling done in our county in years gone by. Smuggling still goes on, but under other phases, and in a different garb. " But that" as Rudyard Kipling says " is another story."
