The way to be rich and respectable : addressed to men of small fortune ...
- Attributed to John Trusler by Halkett & Laing., Publication date from ESTC., and "In this pamphlet is given an estimate, shewing that a gentleman, with a wife, four children, and five servants, may, residing in the country, with a few acres of land, live as well as, and make an appearance in life equal to, a man of 1000¿. a year, and yet not expend 400¿. including the rent both of house and land; and still be able, in the course of 20 years, to lay by 2500¿. The plan of living, in this estimate, is not ideal only, but has been absolutely pursued by the author many years. Such as are fond of farming, will here find the expences attending, and the profits arising from the cultivation of land, feeding of sheep, &c. &c."
