Description

There is no Carriage looks better than a genteel Chariot, and where much room for passengers is not necessary, none is more convenient, for being more light and airy than a Coach, it is much to be preferred on that account; on it, as few or as many ornaments may be exhibited as on the Coach, and with as good an effect, but for a Carriage in frequent use, it is best not to be too profuse with them, as it adds to the weight, and trouble in cleaning, as well as to the expense. To form a genteel Chariot, is to collect such materials as are light in their appearance, and of a fanciful device; the more novelty, if not to extremes, the more genteel the Carriage, but as that is a matter of fancy, it must be left to the occupier of the Carriage to make a choice; what is now most fashionable will only here be noticed. First Charge for a Town Chariot £93 12s 6d. [William Fenton, 1789]
