On October 23, 1858, Henry Clapp, Jr., published the inaugural issue of The Saturday Press.
This story, which begins as a dialog, introduces the main character's fondness for smoking, his unwillingness to give it up for a woman, and his later discovery of the "art of cheap smoking" (2).
The note that appears at the beginning of the column mentions that every story which has previously appeared in the Saturday Press has included the smoking of a pipe or more of tobacco and that this story does not deviate from the pattern.
