FREDERICK WILLIAM FAIRHOLT
English artist, engraver and antiquary
(1814 - 1866)

Tobacco, an outlandish weed,
  Doth in the land strange wonders breed;
    It taints the breath, the blood it dries,
      It burns the head, it blinds the eyes;
        It dries the lungs, scourgeth the lights,
          It 'numbs the soul, it dulls the sprites;
            It brings a man into a maze,
              And makes him sit for others' gaze;
                It mars a man, it mars a purse,
                  A lean one fat, a fat one worse;
                    A white man black, a black man white,
                      A night a day, a day a night;
                        It turns the brain like cat in pan,
                          And makes a Jack a gentleman.
      - J. Payne Collier's Manuscript [Tobacco]
