Cornish miners

Full Text

A Letter From 'Ome The Cornish miners, known as Cousin Jacks, were identified by the nips they wore. Pieces of fuse tied below the knees kept their overalls up. The famous Cousin Jack Pastry, their favorite lunch, was a meat pie made with meat, potatoes, and vegetables, encased in a dough shell and baked in the oven. They welcomed it like a letter from home.
