THE crier of Rabbits in the Plate is a portrait well known by persons who frequent the streets at the west end of the town. Wild and tame rabbits are sold from nine pence to eighteen pence each, which is cheaper than they can be bought in the poulterers' shops.
Portland Place is a spacious and elegant street to the north of Marybone. At the south end is Foley-house, the property of Lord Foley, but now let to Mr. Thellusson, a city merchant. From the opening at the upper end of Portland-place is a fine view of Harrow and the Hampstead and Highgate hills; and this opening makes Portland-place one of the most airy situations in town, at the same time that it is one of the finest streets in London, the houses being of perfect uniformity both in height and ornament, and no shops or meaner buildings interrupting the regularity of the design.
