Hard Times

Find and explain a reference, expression, or saying in this section of Hard Times with which you are unfamiliar, either because it is British or because it is tied to the time period in which this book was written.

I'm not sure how to answer the question. Help?

I recall reading about a "light porter" in book two (reaping). I had to look it up on a Dickens website. In those days, a light porter was "a worker, as in a bank, whose duties involve carrying light packages."
