: What does the phrase "and found" mean? He offered him 30 a month and found!

I believe it means (or at least, meant) that food and accommodation would be included as part of the remuneration. So, in your example, the pay for whatever it was would be 30 (Euros, pounds, dollars...)a month with food and lodging 'thrown in'.
