Swift didn't think much of the landlords, and in fact proved this to us when commenting on what would be the landlords' feelings about paying more for infants under 28 pounds (you've read this far enough to know they're selling children for food?).

Quote from text;

the landlords, he writes....."have already devoured most of the Parents" anyway.

thus, they shouldn't mind the expense of the babies
