    • 1816, Joshua E. White, Letters on England
      Such is the general hurry and confusion in the principal streets, such as Castle Street, Lord Street, Pool Lane, Paradise Street, &c. that often passengers take up a bunn, a cake, or some fruit, as they pass the shop of a confectioner or fruit-seller, without stopping, and throw in the pay without inquiring the price.

      "Oh," she replied, "when I came to think of it, I saw, that you were right. I thought, 'twas quite likely it would draw a blank. Crust, the baker, offered me what I gave for it, and a sheet of bunns, to boot, and I let him have it, three weeks ago. []
