Canterbury Tales. Twenty-three tales told by a company of pilgrims going to visit the shrine of St. Thomas à Becket at Canterbury. The party first assembled at the Tabard, an inn in Southwark, and there agreed to tell one tale each both going and returning, and the person who told the best tale was to be treated by the rest to a supper at the Tabard on the homeward journey. The party consisted of twenty- nine pilgrims, so that the whole budget of tales should have been fifty-eight, but only twenty-three of the number were told, not one being on the homeward route.

Canton, the Swiss valet of lord Ogleby. He has to skim the morning papers and serve out the cream of them to his lordship at breakfast, with good emphasis and good discretion.
