Summary
George Cumberland's unpublished and almost unrecorded farce of about 1817 called The Emigrants or A Trip to The Ohio amiably pokes fun at Yankees, Yorkshiremen, Irishmen, and Utopians, and it is a treasure-house of slang, such as "Obstropelous". Its polymath author was a prolific artist, inventor, geologist, poet, political radical, novelist, and intimate friend of William Blake
