Besotted And Bemused

“Hundreds or thousands there are in this town of creatures thus besotted and bemused, who can no longer think, or understand, or act, and are besantmere breathing casks of drink, to whom small ale is cool and rum punch is hot, and there is no other delight or longing or desire left in life but the coolness of the one and the sweet heat and strength of the other.”  No Other Way by Walter Besant.  Published by Chatto & Windus, 1902
