[Note 119.3] The phrase "never handled yet" is probably a reference to the feverish trading of railway shares that was a feature of the railway mania. A letter from "R.A.E." in the The Times, 12 July 1845 said 'There is not a single dabbler in scrip(1) who does not steadfastly believe-first, that a crash sooner or later, is inevitable; and, secondly, that he himself will escape it'. see The Times digital archive
