"CHARACTERISTIC TRAIT OF SIR GEORGE COLLIER, KNT.: WHEN he was ordered off to America, at a day's notice, in the Rainbow, not having time to purchase a cow, he bought a she-goat for the sake of her milk; but her kid moaned so piteously, that Sir George deprived himself of the milk, though he could not relish his tea without it, rather than deprive the poor little animal of its natural sustenance." (1814. The Naval Chronicle. 32:406)
