Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Newsman
 
He comes, the herald of a noisy world,
With spatter’d boots, strapp’d waist, and frozen locks;
News from all nations lumbering at his back.
        Cowper.—The Task, Book IV. Line 5.

Cold and yet cheerful: messenger of grief
Perhaps to thousands, and of joy to some.
        Cowper.—The Task, Book IV. Line 12.
