The Rambler's Magazine is a curious mixture of political satire, political diatribe, theater review, gossip, jokes, and crime reporting. The last has mainly to do with sex: seductions leading to suicide, philandering men and adulterous women, crim con proceedings, etc. To a point, it's an early 19th Century version of the celebrity gossip magazines at the supermarket checkout. You may have an apter analogy.
I can tell you that the Rambler's editorial crew definitely have it in for some anti-vice society, and spend many pages on exposing and mocking same. However, my 21st C short-attention span tends to wander to the shorter items, like this one, from the miscellaneous accounts of legal proceedings. Sadly, the magazine doesn't tell us what his punishment was.
If you're unable to enlarge the text enough to read it, you can read the excerpt online here at bottom of page 68.
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
