Old dreamy sol Gills, of coffee-colored memory, has been admiringly recommended to the good opinion of the world by his friend Capt. Ed'ard Cuttle, mariner of England, as a man "chock full of science."

Description:The ninth article in The New York Tribune's series about astrologers and fortunetellers titled "The Witches of New-York," all written by humorist Mortimer Thomson under his pseudonym "Doesticks."
