Ella possedeva un dono e una sapienza onnipotenti sul cuore maschile: sapeva essere e parere inverisimile. La massima parte delle donne amanti tenta di abolire il proprio passato, tenta di rinascere, di rinverginarsi; fa all'amato l'offerta illusoria dei suoi sensi ignari perché egli li risvegli e li istruisca, della sua anima rasa perché egli v'inscriva la sua legge; e spesso l'ingenua frode avvolge il credulo. Ma ella invece sapeva dare al suo passato una indefinita profondità, alzare la sua giovinezza sopra un immenso sfondo di vita, come quei pittori di ritratti che pongono dietro la figura la veduta d'un portico senza termine o una illimitata lontananza di paesi e di acque. Sembrava che le sue attitudini si disegnassero su un gioco perpetuo di prospettive ch'ella non cercava di coprire ma di equilibrare come quei ritrattisti che conoscono nel quadro il valore degli spazii. (D'Annunzio - Forse che sì forse che no)

Two card-tables were made up in the adjoiningcard-room, and two pair of old ladies, and a corresponding number ofstout gentlemen, were executing whist therein.<>
---------------
The stranger walked boldly up to,and returned with, the master of the ceremonies; a little introductorypantomime; and the stranger and Mrs.<>
---------------
Who's there?' said Mr. Pickwick, starting up in bed.<>
---------------
I immediately sent up to thegentleman who was described as appearing the head of the party, and heat once referred me to you.<>
---------------
He had always been looked up to as a high authority on all matters ofamusement and dexterity, whether offensive, defensive, or inoffensive;and if, on this very first occasion of being put to the test, he shrunkback from the trial, beneath his leader's eye, his name and standingwere lost for ever.<>
---------------
Mr. Winkle was muffled up in a huge cloak to escapeobservation, and Mr. Snodgrass bore under his the instruments ofdestruction.<>
---------------
The officercrossed to Doctor Slammer, and Mr. Snodgrass went up to Mr. Winkle.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'He was lying on an old bedstead, which turned up during the day.<>
---------------
All last night, her large, staring eyesand pale face were close to mine; wherever I turned, they turned; andwhenever I started up from my sleep, she was at the bedside looking atme.<>
---------------
Finding from hisincoherent wanderings that this was the case, and knowing that in allprobability the fever would not grow immediately worse, I left him,promising his miserable wife that I would repeat my visit next evening,and, if necessary, sit up with the patient during the night.<>
---------------
Herose in bed, drew up his withered limbs, and rolled about in uncouthpositions; he was acting--he was at the theatre.<>
---------------
Fill up his glass.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick had replaced on the table the glass which, during the lastfew sentences of the tale, he had retained in his hand; and hadjust made up his mind to speak--indeed, we have the authority of Mr.Snodgrass's note-book for stating, that he had actually opened hismouth--when the waiter entered the room, and said--'Some gentlemen, Sir.<>
---------------
Mr. Tupman, thus solemnly adjured, stated the case in a few words;touched slightly on the borrowing of the coat; expatiated largely on itshaving been done 'after dinner'; wound up with a little penitence on hisown account; and left the stranger to clear himself as best he could.<>
---------------
--'He acts in the piece that the officers of the 52ndget up at the Rochester Theatre to-morrow night.<>
---------------
Draw your chair up tothe table, Sir.<>

Itis indeed a noble and a brilliant sight,' said Mr. Snodgrass, in whosebosom a blaze of poetry was rapidly bursting forth, 'to see the gallantdefenders of their country drawn up in brilliant array before itspeaceful citizens; their faces beaming--not with warlike ferocity, butwith civilised gentleness; their eyes flashing--not with the rudefire of rapine or revenge, but with the soft light of humanity andintelligence.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The opposite troops, whose falling-in had perplexed Mr. Pickwick a fewseconds before, were drawn up to repel the mimic attack of the shambesiegers of the citadel; and the consequence was that Mr. Pickwick andhis two companions found themselves suddenly inclosed between two linesof great length, the one advancing at a rapid pace, and the other firmlywaiting the collision in hostile array.<>
---------------
The best way is tokeep gently up with the object of pursuit, to be wary and cautious, towatch your opportunity well, get gradually before it, then make a rapiddive, seize it by the crown, and stick it firmly on your head; smilingpleasantly all the time, as if you thought it as good a joke as anybodyelse.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick, we say, was completely exhausted, and about to give up thechase, when the hat was blown with some violence against the wheel of acarriage, which was drawn up in a line with half a dozen other vehicleson the spot to which his steps had been directed.<>
---------------
Fastened up behind the barouche was a hamperof spacious dimensions--one of those hampers which always awakens in acontemplative mind associations connected with cold fowls, tongues, andbottles of wine--and on the box sat a fat and red-faced boy, in a stateof somnolency, whom no speculative observer could have regarded for aninstant without setting down as the official dispenser of the contentsof the before-mentioned hamper, when the proper time for theirconsumption should arrive.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Pickwick--Pickwick,' said Mr. Tupman; 'come up here.<>
---------------
Mr. Snodgrass and Mr. Winkle came up at themoment.<>
---------------
I spent someev'nin's at your club last winter--picked up my friend Mr. Tupman herethis morning, and very glad I was to see him.<>
---------------
The young Misses Wardle were so frightened,that Mr. Trundle was actually obliged to hold one of them up in thecarriage, while Mr. Snodgrass supported the other; and Mr. Wardle'ssister suffered under such a dreadful state of nervous alarm, that Mr.Tupman found it indispensably necessary to put his arm round her waist,to keep her up at all.<>
---------------
After a great manyjokes about squeezing the ladies' sleeves, and a vast quantity ofblushing at sundry jocose proposals, that the ladies should sit in thegentlemen's laps, the whole party were stowed down in the barouche; andthe stout gentleman proceeded to hand the things from the fat boy (whohad mounted up behind for the purpose) into the carriage.<>
---------------
What?' inquired Mr. Tupman, who had not precisely made up his mind tosay anything at all.<>
---------------
The horses were put in--the driver mounted--the fat boy clambered up byhis side--farewells were exchanged--and the carriage rattled off.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'And congratulating yourself on being up so soon?'Mr. Pickwick nodded assent.<>
---------------
Blowed if the gen'lm'n worn't a-gettin' up on the wrong side,'whispered a grinning post-boy to the inexpressibly gratified waiter.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Winkle, thus instructed, climbed into his saddle, with about asmuch difficulty as he would have experienced in getting up the side of afirst-rate man-of-war.<>
---------------
His horse was drifting up thestreet in the most mysterious manner--side first, with his head towardsone side of the way, and his tail towards the other.<>
---------------
'Winkle,' said Mr.Snodgrass, as the equestrian came trotting up on the tall horse, withhis hat over his ears, and shaking all over, as if he would shake topieces, with the violence of the exercise, 'pick up the whip, there's agood fellow.<>
---------------
Wewant to put this horse up here,' said Mr. Pickwick; 'I suppose wecan, can't we?' 'Want to put that ere horse up, do ee?' repeated thered-headed man, leaning on his spade.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Can we put this horse up here, my good woman?' said Mr. Tupman,advancing, and speaking in his most seductive tones.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) A very old lady, in a lofty cap and faded silk gown--no less a personagethan Mr. Wardle's mother--occupied the post of honour on the right-handcorner of the chimney-piece; and various certificates of her having beenbrought up in the way she should go when young, and of her not havingdeparted from it when old, ornamented the walls, in the form of samplersof ancient date, worsted landscapes of equal antiquity, and crimsonsilk tea-kettle holders of a more modern period.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Come, come,' said the bustling host, with a natural anxiety to changethe conversation, 'what say you to a rubber, Mr. Pickwick?I should like it of all things,' replied that gentleman; 'but praydon't make up one on my account.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'There!' said the criminal Miller triumphantly, as he took up the oddtrick at the conclusion of a hand; 'that could not have been playedbetter, I flatter myself; impossible to have made another trick!Miller ought to have trumped the diamond, oughtn't he, Sir?' said theold lady.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Another game, with a similar result, was followed by a revoke from theunlucky Miller; on which the fat gentleman burst into a state of highpersonal excitement which lasted until the conclusion of the game, whenhe retired into a corner, and remained perfectly mute for one hourand twenty-seven minutes; at the end of which time he emerged from hisretirement, and offered Mr. Pickwick a pinch of snuff with the air ofa man who had made up his mind to a Christian forgiveness of injuriessustained.<>
---------------
Therewas one old lady who always had about half a dozen cards to pay for, atwhich everybody laughed, regularly every round; and when the old ladylooked cross at having to pay, they laughed louder than ever; on whichthe old lady's face gradually brightened up, till at last she laughedlouder than any of them, Then, when the spinster aunt got 'matrimony,'the young ladies laughed afresh, and the Spinster aunt seemed disposedto be pettish; till, feeling Mr. Tupman squeezing her hand under thetable, she brightened up too, and looked rather knowing, as if matrimonyin reality were not quite so far off as some people thought for;whereupon everybody laughed again, and especially old Mr. Wardle, whoenjoyed a joke as much as the youngest.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Now this,' said the hospitable host, who was sitting in great statenext the old lady's arm-chair, with her hand fast clasped in his--'thisis just what I like--the happiest moments of my life have been passed atthis old fireside; and I am so attached to it, that I keep up a blazingfire here every evening, until it actually grows too hot to bear it.<>

---------------
Oh! how the long-forgotten thoughts offormer days rushed upon his mind, as he almost ran up and down thenarrow yard--as if intelligence would arrive the sooner for hishurrying--and how bitterly a sense of his helplessness and desolationrushed upon him, when he heard the truth! His mother, the only parenthe had ever known, lay ill--it might be, dying--within one mile of theground he stood on; were he free and unfettered, a few minutes wouldplace him by her side.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Edmunds, however, had been sent a considerable distance up the countryon his arrival at the settlement; and to this circumstance, perhaps,may be attributed the fact, that though several letters were despatched,none of them ever reached my hands.<>
---------------
He remembered how he used to look up intoher pale face; and how her eyes would sometimes fill with tears as shegazed upon his features--tears which fell hot upon his forehead as shestooped to kiss him, and made him weep too, although he little knew thenwhat bitter tears hers were.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Come along,' shouted the old gentleman, addressing Mr. Winkle; 'a keenhand like you ought to have been up long ago, even to such poor work asthis.<>
---------------
Mr. Winkle responded with a forced smile, and took up the spare gun withan expression of countenance which a metaphysical rook, impressed witha foreboding of his approaching death by violence, may be supposedto assume.<>
---------------
The old gentleman nodded; and two ragged boys who had beenmarshalled to the spot under the direction of the infant Lambert,forthwith commenced climbing up two of the trees.<>
---------------
To tellhow Mr. Pickwick in the first transports of emotion called Mr. Winkle'Wretch!' how Mr. Tupman lay prostrate on the ground; and how Mr. Winkleknelt horror-stricken beside him; how Mr. Tupman called distractedlyupon some feminine Christian name, and then opened first one eye, andthen the other, and then fell back and shut them both--all this would beas difficult to describe in detail, as it would be to depict the gradualrecovering of the unfortunate individual, the binding up of his armwith pocket-handkerchiefs, and the conveying him back by slow degreessupported by the arms of his anxious friends.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I was once upon a time,' replied the host; 'but I have given it up now.<>

Isabella and Emily had strolled out with Mr. Trundle;the deaf old lady had fallen asleep in her chair; the snoring of the fatboy, penetrated in a low and monotonous sound from the distant kitchen;the buxom servants were lounging at the side door, enjoying thepleasantness of the hour, and the delights of a flirtation, on firstprinciples, with certain unwieldy animals attached to the farm; andthere sat the interesting pair, uncared for by all, caring for none, anddreaming only of themselves; there they sat, in short, like a pair ofcarefully-folded kid gloves--bound up in each other.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The spinster aunt took up a large watering-pot which lay in one corner,and was about to leave the arbour.<>
---------------
She would havecried for assistance, but age and infirmity had long ago deprived herof the power of screaming; she, therefore, watched his motions withfeelings of intense horror which were in no degree diminished by hiscoming close up to her, and shouting in her ear in an agitated, and asit seemed to her, a threatening tone--'Missus!'Now it so happened that Mr. Jingle was walking in the garden close tothe arbour at that moment.<>
---------------
He coughed; she looked up and smiled.<>
---------------
Mr. Jingle perceived it, and followed up his advantage.<>
---------------
I paid his expenses!' said Mr. Tupman, jumping up frantically.<>
---------------
Give her her head, Tom,' cried the host;and away they went, down the narrow lanes; jolting in and out of thecart-ruts, and bumping up against the hedges on either side, as if theywould go to pieces every moment.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'How much are they ahead?' shouted Wardle, as they drove up to the doorof the Blue Lion, round which a little crowd had collected, late as itwas.<>
---------------
Chaise-and-four directly!--out with 'em! Put up the gig afterwards.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Fine night,' said Mr. Pickwick, looking up at the moon, which wasshining brightly.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Yo-yo-yo-yoe!' shouted Mr. Pickwick, taking up the burden of the cry,though he had not the slightest notion of its meaning or object.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwick drewhis coat closer about him, coiled himself more snugly up into the cornerof the chaise, and fell into a sound sleep, from which he was onlyawakened by the stopping of the vehicle, the sound of the hostler'sbell, and a loud cry of 'Horses on directly!'But here another delay occurred.<>
---------------
And with such admonitions as these, the old gentleman ran up anddown the yard, and bustled to and fro, in a state of excitement whichcommunicated itself to Mr. Pickwick also; and under the influence ofwhich, that gentleman got himself into complicated entanglements withharness, and mixed up with horses and wheels of chaises, in the mostsurprising manner, firmly believing that by so doing he was materiallyforwarding the preparations for their resuming their journey.<>
---------------
The countenance of Mr. Jingle, completely coated with mud thrown up bythe wheels, was plainly discernible at the window of his chaise; and themotion of his arm, which was waving violently towards the postillions,denoted that he was encouraging them to increased exertion.<>
---------------
About a hundred yards in advance was the other chaise,which had pulled up on hearing the crash.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Ha! ha!' replied Jingle; and then he added, with a knowing wink, and ajerk of the thumb towards the interior of the chaise--'I say--she's verywell--desires her compliments--begs you won't trouble yourself--love toTUPPY--won't you get up behind?--drive on, boys.<>
---------------
He drew his breath hard, and coloured up to the very tips of hisspectacles, as he said, slowly and emphatically--'If ever I meet that man again, I'll--Yes, yes,' interrupted Wardle, 'that's all very well; but whilewe stand talking here, they'll get their licence, and be married inLondon.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwick paused, bottled up his vengeance, and corked it down.<>
---------------
CLEARING UP ALL DOUBTS (IF ANY EXISTED) OF THEDISINTERESTEDNESS OF Mr. A.<>
---------------
Twoor three gigs and chaise-carts were wheeled up under different littlesheds and pent-houses; and the occasional heavy tread of a cart-horse,or rattling of a chain at the farther end of the yard, announcedto anybody who cared about the matter, that the stable lay in thatdirection.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Number five,' said Sam, as he picked up the shoes, and taking a pieceof chalk from his pocket, made a memorandum of their destination on thesoles--'Lady's shoes and private sittin'-room! I suppose she didn't comein the vagin.<>

---------------
Sam threw the painted tops into a corner, and led the way through adark passage, and up a wide staircase.<>
---------------
Mr. Jingle crumpled up the licence, andthrust it into his coat pocket.<>
---------------
In the frenzy of his rage, hehurled the inkstand madly forward, and followed it up himself.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I'll give you ten shillings for it, at once,' said Mr. Pickwick, 'ifyou would take it up for me.<>
---------------
The attachment and fervour of hisfollowers lighted up a glow of enthusiasm within him.<>
---------------
After half an hour's tumbling about, he came to the unsatisfactoryconclusion, that it was of no use trying to sleep; so he got up andpartially dressed himself.<>
---------------
I knew that madness was mixed up with my very blood, and themarrow of my bones! that one generation had passed away without thepestilence appearing among them, and that I was the first in whom itwould revive.<>
---------------
Think of the jest of a large reward, too,and of some sane man swinging in the wind for a deed he never did, andall through a madman's cunning! I thought often of this, but I gaveit up at last.<>

Her face was calm and placid; and even as I looked upon it, a tranquilsmile lighted up her pale features.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Doctors were called in--great men who rolled up to my door in easycarriages, with fine horses and gaudy servants.<>

All this was food for my secret mirth, and I laughed behind the whitehandkerchief which I held up to my face, as we rode home, till the tearsCame into my eyes.<>
---------------
I couldnot hide the wild mirth and joy which boiled within me, and made mewhen I was alone, at home, jump up and beat my hands together, anddance round and round, and roar aloud.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I remember--though it's one of the last things I can remember: for nowI mix up realities with my dreams, and having so much to do, and beingalways hurried here, have no time to separate the two, from some strangeconfusion in which they get involved--I remember how I let it out atlast.<>

It grew fainter andfainter in the distance, and at length died away altogether; but on Ibounded, through marsh and rivulet, over fence and wall, with a wildshout which was taken up by the strange beings that flocked around me onevery side, and swelled the sound, till it pierced the air.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The Pickwick Club (as might have been expected from so enlightened aninstitution) received this statement with the contempt it deserved,expelled the presumptuous and ill-conditioned Blotton from the society,and voted Mr. Pickwick a pair of gold spectacles, in token of theirconfidence and approbation: in return for which, Mr. Pickwick caused aportrait of himself to be painted, and hung up in the club room.<>

Bardell, I have made up my mind.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Mercy upon me,' said Mr. Pickwick, struggling violently, 'I hearsomebody coming up the stairs.<>
---------------
Cladin a tight suit of corduroy, spangled with brass buttons of a veryconsiderable size, he at first stood at the door astounded anduncertain; but by degrees, the impression that his mother must havesuffered some personal damage pervaded his partially developed mind, andconsidering Mr. Pickwick as the aggressor, he set up an appallingand semi-earthly kind of howling, and butting forward with his head,commenced assailing that immortal gentleman about the back and legs,with such blows and pinches as the strength of his arm, and the violenceof his excitement, allowed.<>
---------------
Queer startthat 'ere, but he was one too many for you, warn't he? Up to snuff and apinch or two over--eh?Never mind that matter now,' said Mr. Pickwick hastily; 'I want tospeak to you about something else.<>
---------------
Afore I answers that 'ere question, gen'l'm'n,' replied Mr. Weller,'I should like to know, in the first place, whether you're a-goin' topurwide me with a better?'A sunbeam of placid benevolence played on Mr. Pickwick's features as hesaid, 'I have half made up my mind to engage you myself.<>

SOME ACCOUNT OF EATANSWILL; OF THE STATE OF PARTIESTHEREIN; AND OF THE ELECTION OF A MEMBER TO SERVE IN PARLIAMENT FOR THATANCIENT, LOYAL, AND PATRIOTIC BOROUGHWe will frankly acknowledge that, up to the period of our being firstimmersed in the voluminous papers of the Pickwick Club, we had neverheard of Eatanswill; we will with equal candour admit that we have invain searched for proof of the actual existence of such a place at thepresent day.<>
---------------
Knowing the deep reliance to be placed on every noteand statement of Mr. Pickwick's, and not presuming to set up ourrecollection against the recorded declarations of that great man, wehave consulted every authority, bearing upon the subject, to which wecould possibly refer.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The Pickwickians had no sooner dismounted than they were surrounded bya branch mob of the honest and independent, who forthwith set up threedeafening cheers, which being responded to by the main body (for it'snot at all necessary for a crowd to know what they are cheering about),swelled into a tremendous roar of triumph, which stopped even thered-faced man in the balcony.<>

The meal was hastilydespatched; each of the gentlemen's hats was decorated with an enormousblue favour, made up by the fair hands of Mrs.<>
---------------
Suddenly the crowdset up a great cheering.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) How or by what means it became mixed up with the other procession, andhow it was ever extricated from the confusion consequent thereupon, ismore than we can undertake to describe, inasmuch as Mr. Pickwick'shat was knocked over his eyes, nose, and mouth, by one poke of a Buffflag-staff, very early in the proceedings.<>
---------------
He then felt himself forced up some wooden steps by thepersons from behind; and on removing his hat, found himself surroundedby his friends, in the very front of the left hand side of the hustings.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'The wind blew--not up the road or down it, though that's bad enough,but sheer across it, sending the rain slanting down like the lines theyused to rule in the copy-books at school, to make the boys slope well.<>

"It won't do pushing on, such a night as this; thefirst house we come to we'll put up at, so the faster you go the soonerit's over.<>
---------------
But I cansay that Tom had no sooner finished speaking, than she pricked up herears, and started forward at a speed which made the clay-coloured gigrattle until you would have supposed every one of the red spokes weregoing to fly out on the turf of Marlborough Downs; and even Tom, whipas he was, couldn't stop or check her pace, until she drew up of her ownaccord, before a roadside inn on the right-hand side of the way, abouthalf a quarter of a mile from the end of the Downs.<>
---------------
It was a strange old place,built of a kind of shingle, inlaid, as it were, with cross-beams, withgabled-topped windows projecting completely over the pathway, and a lowdoor with a dark porch, and a couple of steep steps leading down intothe house, instead of the modern fashion of half a dozen shallow onesleading up to it.<>
---------------
It was a comfortable-looking place though, for therewas a strong, cheerful light in the bar window, which shed a bright rayacross the road, and even lighted up the hedge on the other side; andthere was a red flickering light in the opposite window, one moment butfaintly discernible, and the next gleaming strongly through the drawncurtains, which intimated that a rousing fire was blazing within.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'In less than five minutes' time, Tom was ensconced in the room oppositethe bar--the very room where he had imagined the fire blazing--before asubstantial, matter-of-fact, roaring fire, composed of something shortof a bushel of coals, and wood enough to make half a dozen decentgooseberry bushes, piled half-way up the chimney, and roaring andcrackling with a sound that of itself would have warmed the heart ofany reasonable man.<>
---------------
Well, thiswas comfortable too; but even this was not all--for in the bar, seatedat tea at the nicest possible little table, drawn close up before thebrightest possible little fire, was a buxom widow of somewhere abouteight-and-forty or thereabouts, with a face as comfortable as the bar,who was evidently the landlady of the house, and the supreme ruler overall these agreeable possessions.<>
---------------
Tom was fond of hot punch--I may venture to say he was VERYfond of hot punch--and after he had seen the vixenish mare well fedand well littered down, and had eaten every bit of the nice little hotdinner which the widow tossed up for him with her own hands, he justordered a tumbler of it by way of experiment.<>
---------------
"If the widow hadany taste, she might surely pick up some better fellow than that.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'It was a good large room with big closets, and a bed which might haveserved for a whole boarding-school, to say nothing of a couple of oakenpresses that would have held the baggage of a small army; but whatstruck Tom's fancy most was a strange, grim-looking, high backed chair,carved in the most fantastic manner, with a flowered damask cushion,and the round knobs at the bottom of the legs carefully tied up in redcloth, as if it had got the gout in its toes.<>
---------------
He couldn't make anything of it though, so he got into bed,covered himself up warm, and fell asleep.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'In about half an hour, Tom woke up with a start, from a confused dreamof tall men and tumblers of punch; and the first object that presenteditself to his waking imagination was the queer chair.<>
---------------
Tom sat up in bed, and rubbed his eyes todispel the illusion.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) '"Tom," said the old gentleman, "the widow's a fine woman--remarkablyfine woman--eh, Tom?" Here the old fellow screwed up his eyes, cockedup one of his wasted little legs, and looked altogether so unpleasantlyamorous, that Tom was quite disgusted with the levity of hisbehaviour--at his time of life, too! '"I am her guardian, Tom," said theold gentleman.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) '"And these shoes," said the old fellow, lifting up one of the red clothmufflers; "but don't mention it, Tom.<>
---------------
He sat up in bed, and forsome minutes vainly endeavoured to recall the events of the precedingnight.<>
---------------
He walked up to one of the presses.<>
---------------
"'"I am sure nobody who knows him, knows anything bad of him," said thewidow, bridling up at the mysterious air with which Tom had spoken.<>
---------------
She looked up in Tom's face, and smiled through her tears.<>
---------------
And he used to driveabout the country, with the clay-coloured gig with the red wheels, andthe vixenish mare with the fast pace, till he gave up business manyyears afterwards, and went to France with his wife; and then the oldhouse was pulled down.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwick, on hearing this determination, descended to thedrawing-room, where sat a grave man, who started up on his entrance, andsaid, with an air of profound respect:--'Mr. Pickwick, I presume?The same.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick took up his hat, and repaired to the Peacock, but Mr.Winkle had conveyed the intelligence of the fancy-ball there, beforehim.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'My attachment to your person, sir,' said Mr. Tupman, speaking in avoice tremulous with emotion, and tucking up his wristbands meanwhile,'is great--very great--but upon that person, I must take summaryvengeance.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Every one of the men, women, boys, girls, and babies, who were assembledto see the visitors in their fancy-dresses, screamed with delightand ecstasy, when Mr. Pickwick, with the brigand on one arm, and thetroubadour on the other, walked solemnly up the entrance.<>

And the count put up his tablets, and withsundry bows and acknowledgments walked away, thoroughly satisfied thathe had made the most important and valuable additions to his stock ofinformation.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) A chorus of bystanders took up the shout of Count Smorltork's praise,shook their heads sagely, and unanimously cried, 'Very!'As the enthusiasm in Count Smorltork's favour ran very high, his praisesmight have been sung until the end of the festivities, if the foursomething-ean singers had not ranged themselves in front of a smallapple-tree, to look picturesque, and commenced singing their nationalsongs, which appeared by no means difficult of execution, inasmuch asthe grand secret seemed to be, that three of the something-ean singersshould grunt, while the fourth howled.<>

Mr.Pickwick was laid up with an attack of rheumatism.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'It IS matter of wonder, though, that anyone of Mr. Nathaniel Pipkin'sretiring disposition, nervous temperament, and most particularlydiminutive income, should from this day forth, have dared to aspire tothe hand and heart of the only daughter of the fiery old Lobbs--of oldLobbs, the great saddler, who could have bought up the whole villageat one stroke of his pen, and never felt the outlay--old Lobbs, who waswell known to have heaps of money, invested in the bank at the nearestmarket town--who was reported to have countless and inexhaustibletreasures hoarded up in the little iron safe with the big keyhole, overthe chimney-piece in the back parlour--and who, it was well known,on festive occasions garnished his board with a real silver teapot,cream-ewer, and sugar-basin, which he was wont, in the pride of hisheart, to boast should be his daughter's property when she found a manto her mind.<>
---------------
But thoughhe had often thought then, how briskly he would walk up to Maria Lobbsand tell her of his passion if he could only meet her, he felt, now thatshe was unexpectedly before him, all the blood in his body mounting tohis face, manifestly to the great detriment of his legs, which, deprivedof their usual portion, trembled beneath him.<>
---------------
But though he was afraid to make up to them, he couldn't bear to losesight of them; so when they walked faster he walked faster, when theylingered he lingered, and when they stopped he stopped; and so theymight have gone on, until the darkness prevented them, if Kate had notlooked slyly back, and encouragingly beckoned Nathaniel to advance.<>

Not that it took long to select the garments he shouldwear, inasmuch as he had no choice about the matter; but the putting ofthem on to the best advantage, and the touching of them up previously,was a task of no inconsiderable difficulty or importance.<>

The onlyeye-sore in the whole place was another cousin of Maria Lobbs's, and abrother of Kate, whom Maria Lobbs called "Henry," and who seemed tokeep Maria Lobbs all to himself, up in one corner of the table.<>
---------------
At last he thoughtof the closet, and walked up to it.<>
---------------
"'"Why, you snivelling, wry-faced, puny villain," gasped old Lobbs,paralysed by the atrocious confession; "what do you mean by that? Saythis to my face! Damme, I'll throttle you!"'It is by no means improbable that old Lobbs would have carried histhreat into execution, in the excess of his rage, if his arm had notbeen stayed by a very unexpected apparition: to wit, the male cousin,who, stepping out of his closet, and walking up to old Lobbs, said--'"I cannot allow this harmless person, Sir, who has been asked here, insome girlish frolic, to take upon himself, in a very noble manner, thefault (if fault it is) which I am guilty of, and am ready to avow.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Such was the morning, when an open carriage, in which were threePickwickians (Mr. Snodgrass having preferred to remain at home), Mr.Wardle, and Mr. Trundle, with Sam Weller on the box beside the driver,pulled up by a gate at the roadside, before which stood a tall,raw-boned gamekeeper, and a half-booted, leather-legginged boy, eachbearing a bag of capacious dimensions, and accompanied by a brace ofpointers.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Hollo!' said Sam, picking up his hat, which had been knocked off, andrubbing his temple.<>
---------------
The gamekeeperhaving been coaxed and feed, and having, moreover, eased his mind by'punching' the head of the inventive youth who had first suggested theuse of the machine, Mr. Pickwick was placed in it, and off the partyset; Wardle and the long gamekeeper leading the way, and Mr. Pickwick inthe barrow, propelled by Sam, bringing up the rear.<>
---------------
Where are they--where are they?Where are they!' said Wardle, taking up a brace of birds which the dogshad deposited at his feet.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'We shall very likely be up with another covey in five minutes,' saidthe long gamekeeper.<>

Well,' said Wardle, walking up tothe side of the barrow, and wiping the streams of perspiration from hisjolly red face; 'smoking day, isn't it?It is, indeed,' replied Mr. Pickwick.<>

If their most intense gratification had beenawakened by seeing him wheeled in, how many hundredfold was their joyincreased when, after a few indistinct cries of 'Sam!' he sat up in thebarrow, and gazed with indescribable astonishment on the faces beforehim.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Ah, run avay,' said Mr. Weller, jumping up on the box.<>

So, to keep up their good-humour, they stopped at the first roadsidetavern they came to, and ordered a glass of brandy-and-water all round,with a magnum of extra strength for Mr. Samuel Weller.<>

"Well, sir," says oldFogg, looking at him very fierce--you know his way--"well, Sir, have youcome to settle?" "Yes, I have, sir," said Ramsey, putting his hand inhis pocket, and bringing out the money, "the debt's two pound ten, andthe costs three pound five, and here it is, Sir;" and he sighed likebricks, as he lugged out the money, done up in a bit of blotting-paper.<>

If you want to ease your mind by blowing up somebody, comeout into the court and blow up me; but it's rayther too expensive workto be carried on here.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick walked on abstractedly, crossed opposite the Mansion House,and bent his steps up Cheapside.<>

At lastthe stout man, putting up his legs on the seat, and leaning his backagainst the wall, began to puff at his pipe without leaving off at all,and to stare through the smoke at the new-comers, as if he had made uphis mind to see the most he could of them.<>

What do YOU know of the timewhen young men shut themselves up in those lonely rooms, and read andread, hour after hour, and night after night, till their reason wanderedbeneath their midnight studies; till their mental powers were exhausted;till morning's light brought no freshness or health to them; and theysank beneath the unnatural devotion of their youthful energies to theirdry old books? Coming down to a later time, and a very different day,what do YOU know of the gradual sinking beneath consumption, orthe quick wasting of fever--the grand results of "life" anddissipation--which men have undergone in these same rooms? How many vainpleaders for mercy, do you think, have turned away heart-sick from thelawyer's office, to find a resting-place in the Thames, or a refuge inthe jail?

As the little oldman concluded, he looked round on the attentive faces of his wonderingauditory with a smile of grim delight.<>
---------------
Yes, funny, are theynot?' replied the little old man, with a diabolical leer; and then,without pausing for an answer, he continued--'I knew another man--let me see--forty years ago now--who took an old,damp, rotten set of chambers, in one of the most ancient inns, that hadbeen shut up and empty for years and years before.<>

" "If you insist upon making yourappearance here," said the tenant, who had had time to collect hispresence of mind during this prosy statement of the ghost's, "I shallgive up possession with the greatest pleasure; but I should like to askyou one question, if you will allow me.<>

Then rubbing his chin with his hand, and looking up to the ceiling as ifto recall the circumstances to his memory, he began as follows:-- THE OLD MAN'S TALE ABOUT THE QUEER CLIENT'It matters little,' said the old man, 'where, or how, I picked up thisbrief history.<>

The street is broad, the shops are spacious, the noise ofpassing vehicles, the footsteps of a perpetual stream of people--allthe busy sounds of traffic, resound in it from morn to midnight; but thestreets around are mean and close; poverty and debauchery lie festeringin the crowded alleys; want and misfortune are pent up in the narrowprison; an air of gloom and dreariness seems, in my eyes at least, tohang about the scene, and to impart to it a squalid and sickly hue.<>
---------------
A man has confidence in untriedfriends, he remembers the many offers of service so freely made by hisboon companions when he wanted them not; he has hope--the hope ofhappy inexperience--and however he may bend beneath the first shock, itsprings up in his bosom, and flourishes there for a brief space, untilit droops beneath the blight of disappointment and neglect.<>

But she would quickly set him down, and hiding her face inher shawl, give vent to the tears that blinded her; for no expressionof interest or amusement lighted up his thin and sickly face.<>

What do youthink they does, t'other day, Sammy?Don't know,' replied Sam, 'what?Goes and gets up a grand tea drinkin' for a feller they calls theirshepherd,' said Mr. Weller.<>

Presently he pulls up again, and lookin' wery hard at me,says, "Where is the sinner; where is the mis'rable sinner?" and all thewomen groans again, ten times louder than afore.<>

The solemn protestations of the hostler being wholly unavailing, theleather hat-box was obliged to be raked up from the lowest depth of theboot, to satisfy him that it had been safely packed; and after he hadbeen assured on this head, he felt a solemn presentiment, first, thatthe red bag was mislaid, and next that the striped bag had been stolen,and then that the brown-paper parcel 'had come untied.<>

At length whenhe had received ocular demonstration of the groundless nature of eachand every of these suspicions, he consented to climb up to the roof ofthe coach, observing that now he had taken everything off his mind, hefelt quite comfortable and happy.<>

After the lapse of an hour, a bitof fish and a steak was served up to the travellers, and when the dinnerwas cleared away, Mr. Pickwick and Mr. Peter Magnus drew their chairsup to the fire, and having ordered a bottle of the worst possible portwine, at the highest possible price, for the good of the house, drankbrandy-and-water for their own.<>

I am much obliged to you, for your condolence on what you presume to bemy melancholy case,' said Mr. Pickwick, winding up his watch, and layingit on the table, 'but--No, no,' said Mr. Peter Magnus, 'not a word more; it's a painfulsubject.<>

Passage after passagedid he explore; room after room did he peep into; at length, as he wason the point of giving up the search in despair, he opened the door ofthe identical room in which he had spent the evening, and beheld hismissing property on the table.<>

He thentook off and folded up his coat, waistcoat, and neckcloth, and slowlydrawing on his tasselled nightcap, secured it firmly on his head, bytying beneath his chin the strings which he always had attached to thatarticle of dress.<>
---------------
Keeping thecurtains carefully closed with his hand, so that nothing more of himcould be seen than his face and nightcap, and putting on his spectacles,he mustered up courage and looked out.<>
---------------
He shrunk behind the curtains, andcalled out very loudly--'Ha-hum!'That the lady started at this unexpected sound was evident, by herfalling up against the rushlight shade; that she persuaded herself itmust have been the effect of imagination was equally clear, for when Mr.Pickwick, under the impression that she had fainted away stone-dead withfright, ventured to peep out again, she was gazing pensively on the fireas before.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I trust, ma'am,' resumed Mr. Pickwick, gathering up his shoes, andturning round to bow again--'I trust, ma'am, that my unblemishedcharacter, and the devoted respect I entertain for your sex, will pleadas some slight excuse for this--' But before Mr. Pickwick could concludethe sentence, the lady had thrust him into the passage, and locked andbolted the door behind him.<>

It was indeed Mr.Samuel Weller, who after sitting up thus late, in conversation with theboots, who was sitting up for the mail, was now about to retire to rest.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I'm wery sorry, Sammy,' said the elder Mr. Weller, shaking up the ale,by describing small circles with the pot, preparatory to drinking.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Samuel Weller had been staring up at the old brick houses nowand then, in his deep abstraction, bestowing a wink upon somehealthy-looking servant girl as she drew up a blind, or threw open abedroom window, when the green gate of a garden at the bottom of theyard opened, and a man having emerged therefrom, closed the green gatevery carefully after him, and walked briskly towards the very spot whereMr. Weller was standing.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) When the man had shut the green gate after him, he walked, as we havesaid twice already, with a brisk pace up the courtyard; but he nosooner caught sight of Mr. Weller than he faltered, and stopped, as ifuncertain, for the moment, what course to adopt.<>

WHEREIN Mr. PETER MAGNUS GROWS JEALOUS, AND THEMIDDLE-AGED LADY APPREHENSIVE, WHICH BRINGS THE PICKWICKIANS WITHIN THEGRASP OF THE LAWWhen Mr. Pickwick descended to the room in which he and Mr. Peter Magnushad spent the preceding evening, he found that gentleman with the majorpart of the contents of the two bags, the leathern hat-box, and thebrown-paper parcel, displaying to all possible advantage on his person,while he himself was pacing up and down the room in a state of theutmost excitement and agitation.<>

The specials surrounded the body of the vehicle; Mr. Grummer and Mr.Dubbley marched triumphantly in front; Mr. Snodgrass and Mr. Winklewalked arm-in-arm behind; and the unsoaped of Ipswich brought up therear.<>

The ringwas answered by a very smart and pretty-faced servant-girl, who, afterholding up her hands in astonishment at the rebellious appearance of theprisoners, and the impassioned language of Mr. Pickwick, summoned Mr.Muzzle.<>

I wish you would step up toGoswell Street, Sam, and arrange about it.<>

I suppose he's drivin' up to-day?' said Sam.<>
---------------
The moment he saw him eat, all doubt onthe subject was removed, and he perceived at once that if he purposedto take up his temporary quarters where he was, he must make his footinggood without delay.<>

Weller raised her hands, and turned up her eyes,as if the subject were too painful to be alluded to.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Stiggins took up a fresh piece of toast, and groaned heavily.<>

Oh, I know,' said Sam; 'them as hangs up in the linen-drapers' shops,with beggars' petitions and all that 'ere upon 'em?'Mr. Stiggins began a third round of toast, and nodded assent.<>

T'other Sunday I wos walkin' up the road, wen who should I see,a-standin' at a chapel door, with a blue soup-plate in her hand, butyour mother-in-law!

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Sam was up betimes next day, and having partaken of a hasty breakfast,prepared to return to London.<>
---------------
Many ofthe hearts that throbbed so gaily then, have ceased to beat; many ofthe looks that shone so brightly then, have ceased to glow; the hands wegrasped, have grown cold; the eyes we sought, have hid their lustre inthe grave; and yet the old house, the room, the merry voices and smilingfaces, the jest, the laugh, the most minute and trivial circumstancesconnected with those happy meetings, crowd upon our mind at eachrecurrence of the season, as if the last assemblage had been butyesterday! Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusionsof our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures ofhis youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands ofmiles away, back to his own fireside and his quiet home!But we are so taken up and occupied with the good qualities of thissaint Christmas, that we are keeping Mr. Pickwick and his friendswaiting in the cold on the outside of the Muggleton coach, whichthey have just attained, well wrapped up in great-coats, shawls, andcomforters.<>
---------------
The guardand Mr. Weller disappear for five minutes, most probably to get the hotbrandy-and-water, for they smell very strongly of it, when theyreturn, the coachman mounts to the box, Mr. Weller jumps up behind, thePickwickians pull their coats round their legs and their shawls overtheir noses, the helpers pull the horse-cloths off, the coachman shoutsout a cheery 'All right,' and away they go.<>
---------------
The lively notes of the guard's key-bugle vibrate in the clear cold air,and wake up the old gentleman inside, who, carefully letting down thewindow-sash half-way, and standing sentry over the air, takes a shortpeep out, and then carefully pulling it up again, informs the otherinside that they're going to change directly; on which the other insidewakes himself up, and determines to postpone his next nap until afterthe stoppage.<>
---------------
Mr. Winkle, who sits at the extremeedge, with one leg dangling in the air, is nearly precipitated into thestreet, as the coach twists round the sharp corner by the cheesemonger'sshop, and turns into the market-place; and before Mr. Snodgrass, whosits next to him, has recovered from his alarm, they pull up at the innyard where the fresh horses, with cloths on, are already waiting.<>
---------------
Thecoachman throws down the reins and gets down himself, and the otheroutside passengers drop down also; except those who have no greatconfidence in their ability to get up again; and they remain where theyare, and stamp their feet against the coach to warm them--looking, withlonging eyes and red noses, at the bright fire in the inn bar, and thesprigs of holly with red berries which ornament the window.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) But the guard has delivered at the corn-dealer's shop, the brown paperpacket he took out of the little pouch which hangs over his shoulderby a leathern strap; and has seen the horses carefully put to; and hasthrown on the pavement the saddle which was brought from London on thecoach roof; and has assisted in the conference between the coachman andthe hostler about the gray mare that hurt her off fore-leg last Tuesday;and he and Mr. Weller are all right behind, and the coachman is allright in front, and the old gentleman inside, who has kept the windowdown full two inches all this time, has pulled it up again, and thecloths are off, and they are all ready for starting, except the 'twostout gentlemen,' whom the coachman inquires after with some impatience.<>
---------------
The coachmanshouts an admonitory 'Now then, gen'l'm'n,' the guard re-echoes it; theold gentleman inside thinks it a very extraordinary thing that peopleWILL get down when they know there isn't time for it; Mr. Pickwickstruggles up on one side, Mr. Tupman on the other; Mr. Winkle cries'All right'; and off they start.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Such was the progress of Mr. Pickwick and his friends by the MuggletonTelegraph, on their way to Dingley Dell; and at three o'clock thatafternoon they all stood high and dry, safe and sound, hale and hearty,upon the steps of the Blue Lion, having taken on the road quite enoughof ale and brandy, to enable them to bid defiance to the frost thatwas binding up the earth in its iron fetters, and weaving its beautifulnetwork upon the trees and hedges.<>

Whether the expression of her countenance, as it wasraised towards the old lady's face, called up a thought of old times,or whether the old lady was touched by Mr. Pickwick's affectionategood-nature, or whatever was the cause, she was fairly melted; so shethrew herself on her granddaughter's neck, and all the little ill-humourevaporated in a gush of silent tears.<>
---------------
He sat up in bed and listened.<>
---------------
Mixed up with the pleasure and joy of theoccasion, are the many regrets at quitting home, the tears of partingbetween parent and child, the consciousness of leaving the dearest andkindest friends of the happiest portion of human life, to encounter itscares and troubles with others still untried and little known--naturalfeelings which we would not render this chapter mournful by describing,and which we should be still more unwilling to be supposed to ridicule.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The best sitting-room at Manor Farm was a good, long, dark-panelled roomwith a high chimney-piece, and a capacious chimney, up which you couldhave driven one of the new patent cabs, wheels and all.<>
---------------
Away went Mr. Pickwick--handsacross--down the middle to the very end of the room, and half-way up thechimney, back again to the door--poussette everywhere--loud stamp on theground--ready for the next couple--off again--all the figure over oncemore--another stamp to beat out the time--next couple, and the next, andthe next again--never was such going; at last, after they had reachedthe bottom of the dance, and full fourteen couple after the old ladyhad retired in an exhausted state, and the clergyman's wife had beensubstituted in her stead, did that gentleman, when there was no demandwhatever on his exertions, keep perpetually dancing in his place, tokeep time to the music, smiling on his partner all the while with ablandness of demeanour which baffles all description.<>
---------------
Master wouldn't neglect to keep it up on any account.<>

"Here's a game," says the old gen'l'm'n to himself,"they're a-goin' to have another try, but it won't do!" So he beginsa-chucklin' wery hearty, wen, all of a sudden, the little boy leaveshold of the pickpocket's arm, and rushes head foremost straight into theold gen'l'm'n's stomach, and for a moment doubles him right up withthe pain.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) It was a pleasant thing to see Mr. Pickwick in the centre of the group,now pulled this way, and then that, and first kissed on the chin, andthen on the nose, and then on the spectacles, and to hear the pealsof laughter which were raised on every side; but it was a still morepleasant thing to see Mr. Pickwick, blinded shortly afterwards witha silk handkerchief, falling up against the wall, and scrambling intocorners, and going through all the mysteries of blind-man's buff, withthe utmost relish for the game, until at last he caught one of the poorrelations, and then had to evade the blind-man himself, which he didwith a nimbleness and agility that elicited the admiration and applauseof all beholders.<>
---------------
Trundle, my boy,rake up the fire.<>
---------------
As he went his way, up the ancientstreet, he saw the cheerful light of the blazing fires gleam through theold casements, and heard the loud laugh and the cheerful shouts of thosewho were assembled around them; he marked the bustling preparations fornext day's cheer, and smelled the numerous savoury odours consequentthereupon, as they steamed up from the kitchen windows in clouds.<>
---------------
At any other time, these obstacles wouldhave made Gabriel Grub very moody and miserable, but he was so wellpleased with having stopped the small boy's singing, that he took littleheed of the scanty progress he had made, and looked down into thegrave, when he had finished work for the night, with grim satisfaction,murmuring as he gathered up his things-- Brave lodgings for one, brave lodgings for one, A few feet of cold earth, when life is done; A stone at the head, a stone at the feet, A rich, juicy meal for the worms to eat; Rank grass overhead, and damp clay around, Brave lodgings for one, these, in holy ground!'"Ho! ho!" laughed Gabriel Grub, as he sat himself down on a flattombstone which was a favourite resting-place of his, and drew forth hiswicker bottle.<>
---------------
On his short, round body, he wore aclose covering, ornamented with small slashes; a short cloak dangled athis back; the collar was cut into curious peaks, which served the goblinin lieu of ruff or neckerchief; and his shoes curled up at his toesinto long points.<>
---------------
"What do you think of this, Gabriel?"said the goblin, kicking up his feet in the air on either side of thetombstone, and looking at the turned-up points with as much complacencyas if he had been contemplating the most fashionable pair of Wellingtonsin all Bond Street.<>
---------------
"'Here, the goblin gave a loud, shrill laugh, which the echoes returnedtwentyfold; and throwing his legs up in the air, stood upon his head, orrather upon the very point of his sugar-loaf hat, on the narrow edge ofthe tombstone, whence he threw a Somerset with extraordinary agility,right to the sexton's feet, at which he planted himself in the attitudein which tailors generally sit upon the shop-board.<>
---------------
"You!" He appeared disposed to add more, but indignation chokedhis utterance, so he lifted up one of his very pliable legs, and,flourishing it above his head a little, to insure his aim, administereda good sound kick to Gabriel Grub; immediately after which, all thegoblins in waiting crowded round the wretched sexton, and kicked himwithout mercy, according to the established and invariable custom ofcourtiers upon earth, who kick whom royalty kicks, and hug whom royaltyhugs.<>
---------------
At length all this was devoutly believed;and the new sexton used to exhibit to the curious, for a triflingemolument, a good-sized piece of the church weathercock which had beenaccidentally kicked off by the aforesaid horse in his aerial flight, andpicked up by himself in the churchyard, a year or two afterwards.<>
---------------
But this opinion, which was by no means a popularone at any time, gradually died off; and be the matter how it may, asGabriel Grub was afflicted with rheumatism to the end of his days, thisstory has at least one moral, if it teach no better one--and that is,that if a man turn sulky and drink by himself at Christmas time, he maymake up his mind to be not a bit the better for it: let the spiritsbe never so good, or let them be even as many degrees beyond proof, asthose which Gabriel Grub saw in the goblin's cavern.<>
---------------
A couple of what!' exclaimed Mr. Pickwick, sitting up in bed.<>
---------------
Below hissingle-breasted black surtout, which was buttoned up to his chin,appeared the usual number of pepper-and-salt coloured legs, terminatingin a pair of imperfectly polished boots.<>
---------------
A large mass of ice disappeared; the waterbubbled up over it; Mr. Pickwick's hat, gloves, and handkerchief werefloating on the surface; and this was all of Mr. Pickwick that anybodycould see.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Keep yourself up for an instant--for only one instant!' bawled Mr.Snodgrass.<>
---------------
The adjuration was rather unnecessary; the probability being,that if Mr. Pickwick had declined to keep himself up for anybody else'ssake, it would have occurred to him that he might as well do so, for hisown.<>
---------------
Sam Wellerlighted a blazing fire in the room, and took up his dinner; a bowl ofpunch was carried up afterwards, and a grand carouse held in honour ofhis safety.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The jovial party broke up next morning.<>
---------------
Death,self-interest, and fortune's changes, are every day breaking up many ahappy group, and scattering them far and wide; and the boys and girlsnever come back again.<>
---------------
He then drew forth four scraps of paper,of similar dimensions, each containing a printed copy of the strip ofparchment with blanks for a name; and having filled up the blanks, putall the five documents in his pocket, and hurried away.<>
---------------
Ifyou'll show me Mr. Pickwick's room I'll step up myself.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Sir?' said Sam, stepping up to his master.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) They had walked some distance, Mr. Pickwick trotting on before, plungedin profound meditation, and Sam following behind, with a countenanceexpressive of the most enviable and easy defiance of everything andeverybody, when the latter, who was always especially anxious to impartto his master any exclusive information he possessed, quickened his paceuntil he was close at Mr. Pickwick's heels; and, pointing up at a housethey were passing, said--'Wery nice pork-shop that 'ere, sir.<>
---------------
He was the master o' that 'ere shop, sir, and the inwentoro' the patent-never-leavin'-off sassage steam-ingin, as 'ud swaller up apavin' stone if you put it too near, and grind it into sassages as easyas if it was a tender young babby.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Ah, my dear Sir,' said little Mr. Perker, bustling up from his chair.<>
---------------
Here Mr. Perkerdrew himself up with conscious dignity, and brushed some stray grains ofsnuff from his shirt frill.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'That you sent him up to the plaintiff 's to make some offer of acompromise, I suppose,' replied Perker.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwick, however, had made up his mind not only that it could bedone, but that it should be done; and the consequence was, that withinten minutes after he had received the assurance that the thing wasimpossible, he was conducted by his solicitor into the outer office ofthe great Serjeant Snubbin himself.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) It was an uncarpeted room of tolerable dimensions, with a largewriting-table drawn up near the fire, the baize top of which had longsince lost all claim to its original hue of green, and had graduallygrown gray with dust and age, except where all traces of its naturalcolour were obliterated by ink-stains.<>
---------------
All its disputes, all its ill-will and badblood, rise up before you.<>
---------------
With that hint that he hadbeen interrupted quite long enough, Mr. Serjeant Snubbin, who had beengradually growing more and more abstracted, applied his glass to hiseyes for an instant, bowed slightly round, and was once more deeplyimmersed in the case before him, which arose out of an interminablelawsuit, originating in the act of an individual, deceased a centuryor so ago, who had stopped up a pathway leading from some place whichnobody ever came from, to some other place which nobody ever went to.<>
---------------
The punch was ready-made in a red pan in the bedroom;a little table, covered with a green baize cloth, had been borrowed fromthe parlour, to play at cards on; and the glasses of the establishment,together with those which had been borrowed for the occasion from thepublic-house, were all drawn up in a tray, which was deposited on thelanding outside the door.<>
---------------
She had bustled up to the apartment ofthe unlucky Bob Sawyer, so bent upon going into a passion, that, in allprobability, payment would have rather disappointed her than otherwise.<>

Having given this instruction,the handmaid, who had been brought up among the aboriginal inhabitantsof Southwark, disappeared, with the candle in her hand, down the kitchenstairs, perfectly satisfied that she had done everything that couldpossibly be required of her under the circumstances.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Snodgrass, who entered last, secured the street door, after severalineffectual efforts, by putting up the chain; and the friends stumbledupstairs, where they were received by Mr. Bob Sawyer, who had beenafraid to go down, lest he should be waylaid by Mrs.<>

"--Thefather caught the child up, and ran with him to the hospital; the beadsin the boy's stomach rattling all the way with the jolting; and thepeople looking up in the air, and down in the cellars, to see where theunusual sound came from.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Bring up the warm water instantly--instantly!' said Mr. Bob Sawyer,with desperate sternness.<>
---------------
I can't,' replied the girl; 'Missis Raddle raked out the kitchenfire afore she went to bed, and locked up the kittle.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Because you'll stick it up over your chimney-piece, and delude yourvisitors into the false belief that a gentleman has been to see you,Sir,' replied Mr. Gunter.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Sir, I'm very much obliged to you for the caution, and I'll leaveparticular directions with the servant to lock up the spoons,' repliedMr. Gunter.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) It was at the end of the chorus to the first verse, that Mr. Pickwickheld up his hand in a listening attitude, and said, as soon as silencewas restored--'Hush! I beg your pardon.<>
---------------
I am very much indebted to you for your friendship and good-nature,Hopkins,' said the wretched Mr. Bob Sawyer, 'but I think the best planto avoid any further dispute is for us to break up at once.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Sam had solaced himself with a most agreeable little dinner, and waswaiting at the bar for the glass of warm mixture in which Mr. Pickwickhad requested him to drown the fatigues of his morning's walks, when ayoung boy of about three feet high, or thereabouts, in a hairy cap andfustian overalls, whose garb bespoke a laudable ambition to attain intime the elevation of an hostler, entered the passage of the George andVulture, and looked first up the stairs, and then along the passage,and then into the bar, as if in search of somebody to whom he bore acommission; whereupon the barmaid, conceiving it not improbable thatthe said commission might be directed to the tea or table spoons of theestablishment, accosted the boy with--'Now, young man, what do you want?Is there anybody here, named Sam?' inquired the youth, in a loud voiceof treble quality.<>
---------------
As he was sauntering away his spare time, and stopped to look atalmost every object that met his gaze, it is by no means surprisingthat Mr. Weller should have paused before a small stationer's andprint-seller's window; but without further explanation it does appearsurprising that his eyes should have no sooner rested on certainpictures which were exposed for sale therein, than he gave a suddenstart, smote his right leg with great vehemence, and exclaimed, withenergy, 'if it hadn't been for this, I should ha' forgot all about it,till it was too late!'The particular picture on which Sam Weller's eyes were fixed, as he saidthis, was a highly-coloured representation of a couple of human heartsskewered together with an arrow, cooking before a cheerful fire, while amale and female cannibal in modern attire, the gentleman being clad in ablue coat and white trousers, and the lady in a deep red pelisse witha parasol of the same, were approaching the meal with hungry eyes, up aserpentine gravel path leading thereunto.<>
---------------
Then lookingcarefully at the pen to see that there were no hairs in it, and dustingdown the table, so that there might be no crumbs of bread under thepaper, Sam tucked up the cuffs of his coat, squared his elbows, andcomposed himself to write.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'No; it ain't "damned,"' observed Sam, holding the letter up to thelight, 'it's "shamed," there's a blot there--"I feel myself ashamed.<>

There is little doubt that Mr. Weller would have carried his benevolentintention into immediate execution, if a great noise, occasioned byputting up the cups and saucers, had not very fortunately announced thatthe tea-drinking was over.<>
---------------
The crockery having been removed, the tablewith the green baize cover was carried out into the centre of the room,and the business of the evening was commenced by a little emphatic man,with a bald head and drab shorts, who suddenly rushed up the ladder, atthe imminent peril of snapping the two little legs incased in the drabshorts, and said--'Ladies and gentlemen, I move our excellent brother, Mr. Anthony Humm,into the chair.<>
---------------
My friends,' said Mr. Humm, holding up his hand in adeprecatory manner, to bespeak the silence of such of the stout oldladies as were yet a line or two behind; 'my friends, a delegate fromthe Dorking Branch of our society, Brother Stiggins, attends below.<>
---------------
The little man in the drab shorts who answered to the name of BrotherTadger, bustled down the ladder with great speed, and was immediatelyafterwards heard tumbling up with the Reverend Mr. Stiggins.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Upon this, the women set up a loud and dismal screaming; and rushing insmall parties before their favourite brothers, flung their arms aroundthem to preserve them from danger.<>
---------------
IS WHOLLY DEVOTED TO A FULL AND FAITHFUL REPORT OF THEMEMORABLE TRIAL OF BARDELL AGAINST PICKWICK'I wonder what the foreman of the jury, whoever he'll be, has got forbreakfast,' said Mr. Snodgrass, by way of keeping up a conversation onthe eventful morning of the fourteenth of February.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick stood up in a state of great agitation, and took a glanceat the court.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Serjeant Buzfuz began by saying, that never, in the whole course ofhis professional experience--never, from the very first moment of hisapplying himself to the study and practice of the law--had he approacheda case with feelings of such deep emotion, or with such a heavy senseof the responsibility imposed upon him--a responsibility, he would say,which he could never have supported, were he not buoyed up and sustainedby a conviction so strong, that it amounted to positive certainty thatthe cause of truth and justice, or, in other words, the cause ofhis much-injured and most oppressed client, must prevail with thehigh-minded and intelligent dozen of men whom he now saw in that boxbefore him.<>

" Actuated by thisbeautiful and touching impulse (among the best impulses of our imperfectnature, gentlemen), the lonely and desolate widow dried her tears,furnished her first floor, caught her innocent boy to her maternalbosom, and put the bill up in her parlour window.<>

But Pickwick, gentlemen, Pickwick,the ruthless destroyer of this domestic oasis in the desert of GoswellStreet--Pickwick who has choked up the well, and thrown ashes on thesward--Pickwick, who comes before you to-day with his heartless tomatosauce and warming-pans--Pickwick still rears his head with unblushingeffrontery, and gazes without a sigh on the ruin he has made.<>
---------------
Sanders, whose eyes were intently fixed on the judge's face, plantedherself close by, with the large umbrella, keeping her right thumbpressed on the spring with an earnest countenance, as if she were fullyprepared to put it up at a moment's notice.<>
---------------
But as the usher didn't find the person, he didn't bring him; and,after a great commotion, all the people who had got up to look for theculprit, sat down again.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'No, I don't, my Lord,' replied Sam, staring right up into the lanternat the roof of the court.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Do you remember going up to Mrs.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Well; I suppose you went up to have a little talk about this trial--eh,Mr. Weller?' said Serjeant Buzfuz, looking knowingly at the jury.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I went up to pay the rent; but we did get a-talkin' about the trial,'replied Sam.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Oh, you did get a-talking about the trial,' said Serjeant Buzfuz,brightening up with the anticipation of some important discovery.<>
---------------
Dodson andFogg, the attorneys for the plaintiff, did they?Yes,' said Sam, 'they said what a wery gen'rous thing it was o' them tohave taken up the case on spec, and to charge nothing at all for costs,unless they got 'em out of Mr. Pickwick.<>
---------------
Would any other gen'l'man like to ask me anythin'?' inquired Sam,taking up his hat, and looking round most deliberately.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Sam had put up the steps, and was preparing to jump upon the box, whenhe felt himself gently touched on the shoulder; and, looking round, hisfather stood before him.<>
---------------
I shall employ myself as usual, until the oppositeparty have the power of issuing a legal process of execution against me;and if they are vile enough to avail themselves of it, and to arrest myperson, I shall yield myself up with perfect cheerfulness and content ofheart.<>

The Jews with the fifty-bladed penknives shut them up in despair; themen with the pocket-books made pocket-books of them.<>
---------------
He was buttoned up to the chin in abrown coat; and had a large sealskin travelling-cap, and a greatcoat andcloak, lying on the seat beside him.<>
---------------
He looked up from his breakfast asMr. Pickwick entered, with a fierce and peremptory air, which was verydignified; and, having scrutinised that gentleman and his companions tohis entire satisfaction, hummed a tune, in a manner which seemed to saythat he rather suspected somebody wanted to take advantage of him, butit wouldn't do.<>
---------------
Of course, an interchange of friendly salutations followed this graciousspeech; and the fierce gentleman immediately proceeded to inform thefriends, in the same short, abrupt, jerking sentences, that his name wasDowler; that he was going to Bath on pleasure; that he was formerly inthe army; that he had now set up in business as a gentleman; that helived upon the profits; and that the individual for whom the secondplace was taken, was a personage no less illustrious than Mrs.<>
---------------
Mr. Tupman and Mr. Snodgrass had seatedthemselves at the back part of the coach; Mr. Winkle had got inside; andMr. Pickwick was preparing to follow him, when Sam Weller came up to hismaster, and whispering in his ear, begged to speak to him, with an airof the deepest mystery.<>
---------------
As Sam spoke,he pointed to that part of the coach door on which the proprietor's nameusually appears; and there, sure enough, in gilt letters of a goodlysize, was the magic name of PICKWICK!'Dear me,' exclaimed Mr. Pickwick, quite staggered by the coincidence;'what a very extraordinary thing!Yes, but that ain't all,' said Sam, again directing his master'sattention to the coach door; 'not content vith writin' up "Pick-wick,"they puts "Moses" afore it, vich I call addin' insult to injury, as theparrot said ven they not only took him from his native land, but madehim talk the English langwidge arterwards.<>
---------------
,took Mr. Pickwick's hand; retaining it in his, meantime, and shruggingup his shoulders with a constant succession of bows, as if he reallycould not make up his mind to the trial of letting it go again.<>
---------------
Having taken a shortwalk through the city, and arrived at the unanimous conclusion thatPark Street was very much like the perpendicular streets a man sees in adream, which he cannot get up for the life of him, they returned to theWhite Hart, and despatched Sam on the errand to which his master hadpledged him.<>
---------------
Brilliant eyes, lighted up with pleasurable expectation,gleamed from every side; and, look where you would, some exquisite formglided gracefully through the throng, and was no sooner lost, than itwas replaced by another as dainty and bewitching.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) And lastly, seated on some of the back benches, where they had alreadytaken up their positions for the evening, were divers unmarried ladiespast their grand climacteric, who, not dancing because there were nopartners for them, and not playing cards lest they should be set down asirretrievably single, were in the favourable situation of being able toabuse everybody without reflecting on themselves.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Just at the very moment of their entrance, the Dowager Lady Snuphanuphand two other ladies of an ancient and whist-like appearance, werehovering over an unoccupied card-table; and they no sooner set eyesupon Mr. Pickwick under the convoy of Angelo Bantam, than they exchangedglances with each other, seeing that he was precisely the very personthey wanted, to make up the rubber.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'My dear Bantam,' said the Dowager Lady Snuphanuph coaxingly, 'findus some nice creature to make up this table; there's a good soul.<>
---------------
Colonel Wugsby would shrug up her shoulders, and cough, as muchas to say she wondered whether he ever would begin.<>
---------------
Then, at the endof every hand, Miss Bolo would inquire with a dismal countenance andreproachful sigh, why Mr. Pickwick had not returned that diamond, or ledthe club, or roughed the spade, or finessed the heart, or led throughthe honour, or brought out the ace, or played up to the king, or somesuch thing; and in reply to all these grave charges, Mr. Pickwick wouldbe wholly unable to plead any justification whatever, having by thistime forgotten all about the game.<>
---------------
He drank a quarter ofa pint before breakfast, and then walked up a hill; and another quarterof a pint after breakfast, and then walked down a hill; and, after everyfresh quarter of a pint, Mr. Pickwick declared, in the most solemn andemphatic terms, that he felt a great deal better; whereat his friendswere very much delighted, though they had not been previously aware thatthere was anything the matter with him.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick was sitting up by himself, after a day spent in thismanner, making entries in his journal, his friends having retired tobed, when he was roused by a gentle tap at the room door.<>
---------------
Craddock; 'and Mr. Dowleris good enough to say that he'll sit up for Mrs.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwickcarefully rubbed the last page on the blotting-paper, shut up the book,wiped his pen on the bottom of the inside of his coat tail, and openedthe drawer of the inkstand to put it carefully away.<>
---------------
Seeing from this, that it wasno private document; and as it seemed to relate to Bath, and was veryshort: Mr. Pick-wick unfolded it, lighted his bedroom candle that itmight burn up well by the time he finished; and drawing his chair nearerthe fire, read as follows-- THE TRUE LEGEND OF PRINCE BLADUD'Less than two hundred years ago, on one of the public baths in thiscity, there appeared an inscription in honour of its mighty founder, therenowned Prince Bladud.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'When King Lud saw the prince his son, and found he had grown up such afine young man, he perceived what a grand thing it would be to havehim married without delay, so that his children might be the means ofperpetuating the glorious race of Lud, down to the very latest ages ofthe world.<>
---------------
King Lud flew into a frightful rage, tossed his crown up tothe ceiling, and caught it again--for in those days kings kept theircrowns on their heads, and not in the Tower--stamped the ground, rappedhis forehead, wondered why his own flesh and blood rebelled against him,and, finally, calling in his guards, ordered the prince away to instantConfinement in a lofty turret; a course of treatment which the kings ofold very generally pursued towards their sons, when their matrimonialinclinations did not happen to point to the same quarter as their own.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'When Prince Bladud had been shut up in the lofty turret for the greaterpart of a year, with no better prospect before his bodily eyes than astone wall, or before his mental vision than prolonged imprisonment, henaturally began to ruminate on a plan of escape, which, after monthsof preparation, he managed to accomplish; considerately leaving hisdinner-knife in the heart of his jailer, lest the poor fellow (who hada family) should be considered privy to his flight, and punishedaccordingly by the infuriated king.<>
---------------
The ground opened beneath the prince's feet;he sank into the chasm; and instantaneously it closed upon his head forever, save where his hot tears welled up through the earth, and wherethey have continued to gush forth ever since.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwick went to his bedchamber, and Mr. Dowler resumed his seatbefore the fire, in fulfilment of his rash promise to sit up till hiswife came home.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) There are few things more worrying than sitting up for somebody,especially if that somebody be at a party.<>
---------------
Clocks tick so loud, too, when you are sitting up alone, andyou seem as if you had an under-garment of cobwebs on.<>
---------------
These, and variousother little nervous annoyances, render sitting up for a length of timeafter everybody else has gone to bed, anything but a cheerful amusement.<>
---------------
At length, afterseveral droppings asleep, and fallings forward towards the bars, andcatchings backward soon enough to prevent being branded in the face, Mr.Dowler made up his mind that he would throw himself on the bed in theback room and think--not sleep, of course.<>
---------------
The short man was quite willing to get the job over, as soon aspossible; so he stood on the step, and gave four or five most startlingdouble-knocks, of eight or ten knocks a-piece, while the long man wentinto the road, and looked up at the windows for a light.<>
---------------
There are ladies with 'em;cover me up with something.<>
---------------
Throwing up the window-sash as Mr. Winkle was rushing into thechair, she no sooner caught sight of what was going forward below, thanshe raised a vehement and dismal shriek, and implored Mr. Dowler to getup directly, for his wife was running away with another gentleman.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Upon this, Mr. Dowler bounced off the bed as abruptly as an India-rubberball, and rushing into the front room, arrived at one window just as Mr.Pickwick threw up the other, when the first object that met the gaze ofboth, was Mr. Winkle bolting into the sedan-chair.<>
---------------
He kept ahead; the door was open as he came round the secondtime; he rushed in, slammed it in Dowler's face, mounted to his bedroom,locked the door, piled a wash-hand-stand, chest of drawers, and a tableagainst it, and packed up a few necessaries ready for flight with thefirst ray of morning.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Dowler came up to the outside of the door; avowed, through the keyhole,his steadfast determination of cutting Mr. Winkle's throat next day;and, after a great confusion of voices in the drawing-room, amidst whichthat of Mr. Pickwick was distinctly heard endeavouring to make peace,the inmates dispersed to their several bed-chambers, and all was quietonce more.<>
---------------
I'll try and bear up agin such a reg'lar knock down o' talent,' repliedSam.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I beg your pardon, Sir,' replied the crestfallen greengrocer, 'I didn'tmean to do it, Sir; I was up very late last night, Sir.<>
---------------
Delicacy, my dear friend, delicacy!' And theman in blue, pulling up his neckerchief, and adjusting his coat cuffs,nodded and frowned as if there were more behind, which he could say ifhe liked, but was bound in honour to suppress.<>

He had adistinct recollection of having once consented to eat salt butter, andhe had, moreover, on an occasion of sudden sickness in the house, so farforgotten himself as to carry a coal-scuttle up to the second floor.<>
---------------
As the cocked hat would have been spoiled if left there,Sam very considerately flattened it down on the head of the gentleman inblue, and putting the big stick in his hand, propped him up against hisown street-door, rang the bell, and walked quietly home.<>
---------------
He took up his quarters at the Bush, and designing to postponeany communication by letter with Mr. Pickwick until it was probable thatMr. Dowler's wrath might have in some degree evaporated, walked forthto view the city, which struck him as being a shade more dirty than anyplace he had ever seen.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I am sorry to trouble you, Sir,' said Mr. Winkle, 'but will you havethe goodness to direct me to--Ha! ha! ha!' roared the studious young gentleman, throwing the largebook up into the air, and catching it with great dexterity at the verymoment when it threatened to smash to atoms all the bottles on thecounter.<>
---------------
He goes up to a house, rings the area bell,pokes a packet of medicine without a direction into the servant's hand,and walks off.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Ben Allen seized the poker, flourished it in a warlike manner abovehis head, inflicted a savage blow on an imaginary skull, and wound up bysaying, in a very expressive manner, that he only wished he could guess;that was all.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) About half-past twelve o'clock, when Mr. Winkle had been revelling sometwenty minutes in the full luxury of his first sleep, he was suddenlyawakened by a loud knocking at his chamber door, which, being repeatedwith increased vehemence, caused him to start up in bed, and inquire whowas there, and what the matter was.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'You're a amiably-disposed young man, Sir, I don't think,' resumedMr. Weller, in a tone of moral reproof, 'to go inwolving our preciousgovernor in all sorts o' fanteegs, wen he's made up his mind to gothrough everythink for principle.<>
---------------
Ihave considered the matter well, for a long time, and I feel that myhappiness is bound up in her.<>
---------------
That's wot we call tying it up in a small parcel, sir,' interposed Mr.Weller, with an agreeable smile.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Accordingly, next morning, Sam Weller issued forth upon his quest, inno way daunted by the very discouraging prospect before him; and awayhe walked, up one street and down another--we were going to say, up onehill and down another, only it's all uphill at Clifton--without meetingwith anything or anybody that tended to throw the faintest light on thematter in hand.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'My dear,' said Sam, sliding up with an air of great respect, 'you'llspile that wery pretty figure out o' all perportion if you shake themcarpets by yourself.<>
---------------
As Sam Weller said this, he tucked up his wristbands, at theimminent hazard of falling off the wall in so doing, to intimate hisreadiness to set to work immediately.<>
---------------
The best thing to bedone, sir, will be for Mr. Weller to give you a hoist up into the tree,and perhaps Mr. Pickwick will have the goodness to see that nobody comesup the lane, while I watch at the other end of the garden.<>
---------------
Now, Mr. Winkle, sir, up vith you.<>
---------------
Nowthen, up vith you.<>
---------------
He was up again in an instant however; and bidding Mr. Winkle make hasteand get the interview over, ran out into the lane to keep watch, withall the courage and ardour of youth.<>
---------------
The mysterious light appeared more brilliantlythan before, dancing, to all appearance, up and down the lane, crossingfrom side to side, and moving in an orbit as eccentric as cometsthemselves.<>
---------------
You have been bred up in this country.<>
---------------
Having performed this feat with great suddenness anddexterity, Mr. Weller caught Mr. Pickwick up on his back, and followedMr. Winkle down the lane at a pace which, considering the burden hecarried, was perfectly astonishing.<>
---------------
Into one pocket of this greatcoat, hethrust his left hand the moment he dismounted, while from the other hedrew forth, with his right, a very bright and glaring silk handkerchief,with which he whisked a speck or two of dust from his boots, and then,crumpling it in his hand, swaggered up the court.<>
---------------
Here, Smouch!Well, wot's amiss here?' growled the man in the brown coat, who hadbeen gradually sneaking up the court during this short dialogue.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The waiter led the way upstairs as he was desired, and the man in therough coat followed, with Sam behind him, who, in his progress up thestaircase, indulged in sundry gestures indicative of supreme contemptand defiance, to the unspeakable gratification of the servants and otherlookers-on.<>
---------------
Shut your eyes up tight,Sir.<>
---------------
Take that hat up again.<>
---------------
But this Sam flatly and positively refused to do; and, after he hadbeen severely reprimanded by his master, the officer, being in a hurry,condescended to pick it up himself, venting a great variety of threatsagainst Sam meanwhile, which that gentleman received with perfectcomposure, merely observing that if Mr. Namby would have the goodnessto put his hat on again, he would knock it into the latter end ofnext week.<>
---------------
Mr. Namby, perhaps thinking that such a process mightbe productive of inconvenience to himself, declined to offer thetemptation, and, soon after, called up Smouch.<>
---------------
Smouch, requesting Mr. Pickwick in a surly manner 'to be as alive ashe could, for it was a busy time,' drew up a chair by the door and satthere, until he had finished dressing.<>
---------------
The third tenant ofthe apartment was a middle-aged man in a very old suit of black, wholooked pale and haggard, and paced up and down the room incessantly;stopping, now and then, to look with great anxiety out of the window asif he expected somebody, and then resuming his walk.<>
---------------
Then, walkingagain up to the window, and once more returning disappointed, he sigheddeeply, and left the room; upon which the other two burst into a loudlaugh.<>
---------------
As Mr. Pickwick followed, the lame man stepped up to him, andcivilly touching his hat, held out a written card, which Mr. Pickwick,not wishing to hurt the man's feelings by refusing, courteously acceptedand deposited in his waistcoat pocket.<>
---------------
I'd ha' got half a dozenhave-his-carcases ready, pack'd up and all, by this time.<>
---------------
WHAT BEFELL Mr. PICKWICK WHEN HE GOT INTO THE FLEET; WHATPRISONERS HE SAW THERE, AND HOW HE PASSED THE NIGHTMr. Tom Roker, the gentleman who had accompanied Mr. Pickwick into theprison, turned sharp round to the right when he got to the bottom ofthe little flight of steps, and led the way, through an iron gate whichstood open, and up another short flight of steps, into a long narrowgallery, dirty and low, paved with stone, and very dimly lighted by awindow at each remote end.<>
---------------
In a third, a man, with his wife and a wholecrowd of children, might be seen making up a scanty bed on the ground,or upon a few chairs, for the younger ones to pass the night in.<>
---------------
Ifhe got any wrinkles in his face, they were stopped up vith the dirt, forboth the dirty face and the brown coat wos just the same at the endo' that time as they wos at the beginnin'.<>
---------------
"Wery probable," says the turnkey,smoking his pipe wery fierce, and making believe he warn't up to wot thelittle man wanted.<>
---------------
A young woman, with a child in her arms, who seemed scarcelyable to crawl, from emaciation and misery, was walking up and down thepassage in conversation with her husband, who had no other place tosee her in.<>
---------------
Another man, evidently verydrunk, who had probably been tumbled into bed by his companions, wassitting up between the sheets, warbling as much as he could recollectof a comic song, with the most intensely sentimental feeling andexpression; while a third, seated on one of the bedsteads, wasapplauding both performers with the air of a profound connoisseur, andencouraging them by such ebullitions of feeling as had already rousedMr. Pickwick from his sleep.<>
---------------
What will you take, sir?Will you take port wine, sir, or sherry wine, sir? I can recommend theale, sir; or perhaps you'd like to taste the porter, sir? Allow me tohave the felicity of hanging up your nightcap, Sir.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'You know where the coffee-room is,' said Smangle; 'just run down,and tell that gentleman you've come to help him up with the jug.<>
---------------
Then knock him downstairs, and tell him notto presume to get up till I come and kick him,' rejoined Mr. Mivins;with this prompt advice that excellent gentleman again betook himself toslumber.<>
---------------
Shall I putany of those little things up with mine? Don't say anything about thetrouble.<>
---------------
This speech was accompanied with such a very expressive look at thatparticular portion of Mr. Smangle's attire, by the appearance of whichthe skill of laundresses in getting up gentlemen's linen is generallytested, that he was fain to turn upon his heel, and, for the present atany rate, to give up all design on Mr. Pickwick's purse and wardrobe.<>
---------------
My what, did you say?Your chummage ticket,' replied Mr. Roker; 'you're up to that?Not quite,' replied Mr. Pickwick, with a smile.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'One of 'em's a parson,' said Mr. Roker, filling up a little piece ofpaper as he spoke; 'another's a butcher.<>
---------------
I think I can see him now,a-coming up the Strand between the two street-keepers, a little soberedby the bruising, with a patch o' winegar and brown paper over hisright eyelid, and that 'ere lovely bulldog, as pinned the little boyarterwards, a-following at his heels.<>
---------------
Thelatter gentleman, who fastened his coat all the way up to his chin bymeans of a pin and a button alternately, had a very coarse red face, andlooked like a drunken chaplain; which, indeed, he was.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'It's an aggravating thing, just as we got the beds so snug,' saidthe chaplain, looking at three dirty mattresses, each rolled up ina blanket; which occupied one corner of the room during the day, andformed a kind of slab, on which were placed an old cracked basin, ewer,and soap-dish, of common yellow earthenware, with a blue flower--'veryaggravating.<>
---------------
Mr. Martin expressed the same opinion in rather stronger terms; Mr.Simpson, after having let a variety of expletive adjectives looseupon society without any substantive to accompany them, tucked up hissleeves, and began to wash the greens for dinner.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'There's a capital room up in the coffee-room flight, that belongs to aChancery prisoner,' said Mr. Roker.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Just step there with me,' said Roker, taking up his hat with greatalacrity; 'the matter's settled in five minutes.<>
---------------
As he laboured, however, under the inconvenience of oftenwanting a morsel of bread, he eagerly listened to Mr. Pickwick'sproposal to rent the apartment, and readily covenanted and agreedto yield him up the sole and undisturbed possession thereof, inconsideration of the weekly payment of twenty shillings; from which fundhe furthermore contracted to pay out any person or persons that might bechummed upon it.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The man gathered up the money with a trembling hand, and replied that hedidn't know yet; he must go and see where he could move his bed to.<>
---------------
Wholly unable to keep up appearances any longer, and perhaps renderedworse by the effort he had made, the dejected stroller sat down on thestairs, and, covering his face with his hands, sobbed like a child.<>
---------------
There is not a messenger or process-serverattached to it, who wears a coat that was made for him; not a tolerablyfresh, or wholesome-looking man in the whole establishment, excepta little white-headed apple-faced tipstaff, and even he, like anill-conditioned cherry preserved in brandy, seems to have artificiallydried and withered up into a state of preservation to which he can layno natural claim.<>
---------------
Being short-neckedand asthmatic, however, he respired principally through this feature;so, perhaps, what it wanted in ornament, it made up in usefulness.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'No, that I wouldn't,' said Mr. Pell; and he pursed up his lips,frowned, and shook his head mysteriously.<>
---------------
It may bethat I am a good deal looked up to, in my profession--it may be that Iam not.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Weller, being stout, cast himself at once into the crowd, with thedesperate hope of ultimately turning up in some place which would suithim.<>
---------------
'Why,they'll eat him up alive, Sammy,'exclaimed Mr. Weller.<>
---------------
P'raps you may ask for it five minitsarterwards; p'raps I may say I von't pay, and cut up rough.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'And now, Sammy,' said the old gentleman, when the whip-lashes, and thebuckles, and the samples, had been all put back, and the book oncemore deposited at the bottom of the same pocket, 'now, Sammy, I know agen'l'm'n here, as'll do the rest o' the bisness for us, in no time--alimb o' the law, Sammy, as has got brains like the frogs, dispersed allover his body, and reachin' to the wery tips of his fingers; a friendof the Lord Chancellorship's, Sammy, who'd only have to tell him what hewanted, and he'd lock you up for life, if that wos all.<>
---------------
He highly approved of Sam'sattachment to his master; declared that it strongly reminded him of hisown feelings of devotion to his friend, the Chancellor; and at once ledthe elder Mr. Weller down to the Temple, to swear the affidavit of debt,which the boy, with the assistance of the blue bag, had drawn up on thespot.<>
---------------
It's avery pleasant trait in a young man's character, very much so,' added Mr.Pell, smiling smoothly round, as he buttoned up the money.<>
---------------
So off they set; the plaintiff and defendant walking armin arm, the officer in front, and eight stout coachmen bringing up therear.<>
---------------
But consider, Sam,' Mr. Pickwick remonstrated, 'the sum is so smallthat it can very easily be paid; and having made up My mind that youshall stop with me, you should recollect how much more useful you wouldbe, if you could go outside the walls.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Yes, he wos, Sir,' rejoined Mr. Weller; 'and a wery pleasant gen'l'm'ntoo--one o' the precise and tidy sort, as puts their feet in littleIndia-rubber fire-buckets wen it's wet weather, and never has no otherbosom friends but hare-skins; he saved up his money on principle, wore aclean shirt ev'ry day on principle; never spoke to none of his relationson principle, 'fear they shou'd want to borrow money of him; and wosaltogether, in fact, an uncommon agreeable character.<>
---------------
"See arter the TIMES, Thomas;let me look at the MORNIN' HERALD, when it's out o' hand; don't forgetto bespeak the CHRONICLE; and just bring the 'TIZER, vill you:" and thenhe'd set vith his eyes fixed on the clock, and rush out, just a quarterof a minit 'fore the time to waylay the boy as wos a-comin' in withthe evenin' paper, which he'd read with sich intense interest andpersewerance as worked the other customers up to the wery confines o'desperation and insanity, 'specially one i-rascible old gen'l'm'n as thevaiter wos always obliged to keep a sharp eye on, at sich times, fear heshould be tempted to commit some rash act with the carving-knife.<>
---------------
Onenight he wos took very ill; sends for a doctor; doctor comes in a greenfly, with a kind o' Robinson Crusoe set o' steps, as he could let downwen he got out, and pull up arter him wen he got in, to perwent thenecessity o' the coachman's gettin' down, and thereby undeceivin' thepublic by lettin' 'em see that it wos only a livery coat as he'd goton, and not the trousers to match.<>
---------------
"Wy?" says thepatient, starting up in bed; "I've eat four crumpets, ev'ry night forfifteen year, on principle.<>
---------------
Wy, in support of hisgreat principle that crumpets wos wholesome, and to show that hewouldn't be put out of his way for nobody!' With such like shiftings andchangings of the discourse, did Mr. Weller meet his master's questioningon the night of his taking up his residence in the Fleet.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Will you allow me to in-quire wy you make up your bed under that 'eredeal table?' said Sam.<>
---------------
He was a little man, and, being halfdoubled up as he lay in bed, looked about as long as he ought to havebeen without his legs.<>
---------------
Wot do you mean by leavin' it on trust?' inquired Sam, waking up alittle.<>
---------------
But,' continued the cobbler, 'finding that they couldn't agree amongthemselves, and consequently couldn't get up a case against the will,they withdrew the caveat, and I paid all the legacies.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'How are you?' said that worthy, accompanying the inquiry with a scoreor two of nods; 'I say--do you expect anybody this morning? Threemen--devilish gentlemanly fellows--have been asking after youdownstairs, and knocking at every door on the hall flight; for whichthey've been most infernally blown up by the collegians that had thetrouble of opening 'em.<>
---------------
By the bye--'As Smangle pronounced the last three words, he stopped suddenly,reclosed the door which he had opened, and, walking softly back to Mr.Pickwick, stepped close up to him on tiptoe, and said, in a very softwhisper--'You couldn't make it convenient to lend me half-a-crown till the latterend of next week, could you?'Mr. Pickwick could scarcely forbear smiling, but managing to preservehis gravity, he drew forth the coin, and placed it in Mr. Smangle'spalm; upon which, that gentleman, with many nods and winks, implyingprofound mystery, disappeared in quest of the three strangers, with whomhe presently returned; and having coughed thrice, and nodded as manytimes, as an assurance to Mr. Pickwick that he would not forget to pay,he shook hands all round, in an engaging manner, and at length tookhimself off.<>
---------------
This foolish fellow,' said Mr. Pickwick, tapping Sam on thehead as he knelt down to button up his master's gaiters--'this foolishfellow has got himself arrested, in order to be near me.<>
---------------
Sam looked up at Mr. Winkle, too,when he had finished speaking; and though the glance they exchanged wasinstantaneous, they seemed to understand each other.<>
---------------
He went into the infirmary, this morning; the doctor says his strengthis to be kept up as much as possible; and the warden's sent him wineand broth and that, from his own house.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwick snatched up his hat without speaking, andfollowed at once.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) First of all, he took a refreshing draught of the beer, and then helooked up at a window, and bestowed a platonic wink on a young lady whowas peeling potatoes thereat.<>
---------------
This involvedthe necessity of looking up at the windows also; and as the young ladywas still there, it was an act of common politeness to wink again, andto drink to her good health in dumb show, in another draught of thebeer, which Sam did; and having frowned hideously upon a small boy whohad noted this latter proceeding with open eyes, he threw one leg overthe other, and, holding the newspaper in both hands, began to read inreal earnest.<>
---------------
Blessed, if they was a-callin' me to the bar, theycouldn't make more noise about it!'Accompanying these words with a gentle rap on the head of the younggentleman before noticed, who, unconscious of his close vicinity tothe person in request, was screaming 'Weller!' with all his might, Samhastened across the ground, and ran up the steps into the hall.<>
---------------
Now, then, wot have yougot to say?Who do you think's come here with me, Samivel?' said Mr. Weller,drawing back a pace or two, pursing up his mouth, and extending hiseyebrows.<>
---------------
I drove the old piebald in that 'ere littleshay-cart as belonged to your mother-in-law's first wenter, into vicha harm-cheer wos lifted for the shepherd; and I'm blessed,' said Mr.Weller, with a look of deep scorn--'I'm blessed if they didn't bring aportable flight o' steps out into the road a-front o' our door for him,to get up by.<>
---------------
Wot, I s'pose you happened to drive up agin a post or two?' said Sam.<>
---------------
--'Is it, shepherd?'Mr. Stiggins raised his hands, and turned up his eyes, until thewhites--or rather the yellows--were alone visible; but made no reply inwords.<>
---------------
Set down, Sir, ve make no extra charge for settin' down, as theking remarked wen he blowed up his ministers.<>
---------------
Oh, the accursed cruelty of these inhuman persecutors!'With these words, Mr. Stiggins again cast up his eyes, and rappedhis breast with his umbrella; and it is but justice to the reverendgentleman to say, that his indignation appeared very real and unfeignedindeed.<>
---------------
At this supposition, the Reverend Mr. Stiggins, in evidentconsternation, gathered up his hat and umbrella, and proposed animmediate departure, to which Mrs.<>
---------------
Sam, with his glued to Job's countenance, ran up againstthe people who were walking about, and fell over little children, andstumbled against steps and railings, without appearing at all sensibleof it, until Job, looking stealthily up, said--'How do you do, Mr. Weller?It IS him!' exclaimed Sam; and having established Job's identity beyondall doubt, he smote his leg, and vented his feelings in a long, shrillwhistle.<>
---------------
With thisdefiance, Mr. Weller buttoned up his change in a side pocket, and, withmany confirmatory nods and gestures by the way, proceeded in search ofthe subject of discourse.<>
---------------
The body! It is the lawyer's term for therestless, whirling mass of cares and anxieties, affections, hopes, andgriefs, that make up the living man.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) From this spot, Mr. Pickwick wandered along all the galleries, up anddown all the staircases, and once again round the whole area of theyard.<>
---------------
DODSON AND FOGGIt was within a week of the close of the month of July, that a hackneycabriolet, number unrecorded, was seen to proceed at a rapid pace upGoswell Street; three people were squeezed into it besides the driver,who sat in his own particular little dickey at the side; over the apronwere hung two shawls, belonging to two small vixenish-looking ladiesunder the apron; between whom, compressed into a very small compass, wasstowed away, a gentleman of heavy and subdued demeanour, who, wheneverhe ventured to make an observation, was snapped up short by one of thevixenish ladies before-mentioned.<>
---------------
Upon this the cabman, who in a sudden effort to pull up at the housewith the green door, had pulled the horse up so high that he nearlypulled him backward into the cabriolet, let the animal's fore-legs downto the ground again, and paused.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) While this dialogue was going on, the driver was most ignominiouslyleading the horse, by the bridle, up to the house with the red door,which Master Bardell had already opened.<>
---------------
Raddle came up tottering.<>
---------------
Being conveyed intothe front parlour, she was there deposited on a sofa; and the lady fromthe first floor running up to the first floor, returned with a bottleof sal-volatile, which, holding Mrs.<>
---------------
Of course I feel it, ma'am,' said Mr. Raddle, rubbing his hands, andevincing a slight tendency to brighten up a little.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'For lone people as have got nobody to care for them, or take careof them, or as have been hurt in their mind, or that kind of thing,'observed Mr. Raddle, plucking up a little cheerfulness, and lookinground, 'the country is all very well.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) After this, there was a great hoisting up of Master Bardell, who wasrather a large size for hugging, into his mother's arms, in whichoperation he got his boots in the tea-board, and occasioned someconfusion among the cups and saucers.<>
---------------
Bardell prepared to get in, looking up atthe man with the ash stick, who was seated on the box, smoking a cigar.<>

IS CHIEFLY DEVOTED TO MATTERS OF BUSINESS, AND THETEMPORAL ADVANTAGE OF DODSON AND FOGG--Mr. WINKLE REAPPEARS UNDEREXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES--Mr. PICKWICK'S BENEVOLENCE PROVES STRONGERTHAN HIS OBSTINACYJob Trotter, abating nothing of his speed, ran up Holborn, sometimesin the middle of the road, sometimes on the pavement, sometimes in thegutter, as the chances of getting along varied with the press of men,women, children, and coaches, in each division of the thoroughfare, and,regardless of all obstacles stopped not for an instant until he reachedthe gate of Gray's Inn.<>
---------------
But won't it bebetter to see Mr. Perker to-night, so that we may be there, the firstthing in the morning?Why,' responded Lowten, after a little consideration, 'if it was inanybody else's case, Perker wouldn't be best pleased at my going up tohis house; but as it's Mr. Pickwick's, I think I may venture to take acab and charge it to the office.<>
---------------
Deciding on this line of conduct, Mr.Lowten took up his hat, and begging the assembled company to appoint adeputy-chairman during his temporary absence, led the way to the nearestcoach-stand.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Samuel Weller looked at the little lawyer, then at Mr. Pickwick,then at the ceiling, then at Perker again; grinned, laughed outright,and finally, catching up his hat from the carpet, without furtherexplanation, disappeared.<>
---------------
Come, my dear Sir, draw up yourchair to the table.<>
---------------
Say what you have to say; it's the old story, Isuppose?With a difference, my dear Sir; with a difference,' rejoined Perker,deliberately folding up the paper and putting it into his pocket again.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The little man gave a double-knock on the lid of his snuff-box, openedit, took a great pinch, shut it up again, and repeated the words, 'Withyou.<>
---------------
Sound the gong, draw up thecurtain, and enter the two conspiraytors.<>
---------------
She wants a year of coming of age, and if you plucked up a spirit sheneedn't want a month of being married.<>
---------------
Mr. Martin coughed behind the dark wash-leather gloves, but expressedno sympathy; so the old lady, composing herself, trotted up Mr. BobSawyer's steps, and Mr. Martin followed.<>
---------------
The incipient chemist having beenlifted up by his coat collar, and dropped outside the door, Bob Sawyerassured Mr. Pickwick that he might speak without reserve.<>
---------------
He shall bean object to me, sir, at twelve paces, and a pretty object I'll makeof him, sir--a mean-spirited scoundrel!' This, as it stood, was a verypretty denunciation, and magnanimous withal; but Mr. Bob Sawyer ratherweakened its effect, by winding up with some general observationsconcerning the punching of heads and knocking out of eyes, which werecommonplace by comparison.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Benjamin Allen deliberately crushed his spectacles beneath the heelof his boot, and having picked up the pieces, and put them into threeseparate pockets, folded his arms, bit his lips, and looked in athreatening manner at the bland features of Mr. Pickwick.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) At length, when this determination had been announced half a hundredtimes, the old lady suddenly bridling up and looking very majestic,wished to know what she had done that no respect was to be paid to heryears or station, and that she should be obliged to beg and pray, inthat way, of her own nephew, whom she remembered about five-and-twentyyears before he was born, and whom she had known, personally, when hehadn't a tooth in his head; to say nothing of her presence on the firstoccasion of his having his hair cut, and assistance at numerous othertimes and ceremonies during his babyhood, of sufficient importance tofound a claim upon his affection, obedience, and sympathies, for ever.<>
---------------
On second thoughts, gentlemen, I don't wish you hadknown him, for if you had, you would have been all, by this time, in theordinary course of nature, if not dead, at all events so near it, as tohave taken to stopping at home and giving up company, which wouldhave deprived me of the inestimable pleasure of addressing you at thismoment.<>
---------------
There he lay, stunned, and so cut about the face with somegravel which had been heaped up alongside it, that, to use my uncle'sown strong expression, if his mother could have revisited the earth,she wouldn't have known him.<>
---------------
However, there helay, and I have heard my uncle say, many a time, that the man said whopicked him up that he was smiling as merrily as if he had tumbledout for a treat, and that after they had bled him, the first faintglimmerings of returning animation, were his jumping up in bed, burstingout into a loud laugh, kissing the young woman who held the basin,and demanding a mutton chop and a pickled walnut.<>
---------------
He used to go back for aweek, just to look up his old friends; and what with breakfasting withthis one, lunching with that, dining with the third, and supping withanother, a pretty tight week he used to make of it.<>
---------------
I don't know whetherany of you, gentlemen, ever partook of a real substantial hospitableScotch breakfast, and then went out to a slight lunch of a bushel ofoysters, a dozen or so of bottled ale, and a noggin or two of whiskey toclose up with.<>
---------------
On eitherside of him, there shot up against the dark sky, tall, gaunt, stragglinghouses, with time-stained fronts, and windows that seemed to have sharedthe lot of eyes in mortals, and to have grown dim and sunken withage.<>
---------------
Glancing at all these things with the air of a man who had seenthem too often before, to think them worthy of much notice now, myuncle walked up the middle of the street, with a thumb in each waistcoatpocket, indulging from time to time in various snatches of song, chantedforth with such good-will and spirit, that the quiet honest folk startedfrom their first sleep and lay trembling in bed till the sound diedaway in the distance; when, satisfying themselves that it was only somedrunken ne'er-do-weel finding his way home, they covered themselves upwarm and fell asleep again.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I am particular in describing how my uncle walked up the middle of thestreet, with his thumbs in his waistcoat pockets, gentlemen, because, ashe often used to say (and with great reason too) there is nothing atall extraordinary in this story, unless you distinctly understand atthe beginning, that he was not by any means of a marvellous or romanticturn.<>
---------------
My uncle woke, rubbed hiseyes, and jumped up in astonishment.<>
---------------
He wore knee breeches, and a kind of leggings rolled up over his silkstockings, and shoes with buckles; he had ruffles at his wrists, athree-cornered hat on his head, and a long taper sword by his side.<>
---------------
She got into the coach, holding up her dress with onehand; and as my uncle always said with a round oath, when he told thestory, he wouldn't have believed it possible that legs and feet couldhave been brought to such a state of perfection unless he had seen themwith his own eyes.<>
---------------
An uncommonly ill-lookingfellow, in a close brown wig, and a plum-coloured suit, wearing a verylarge sword, and boots up to his hips, belonged to the party; and whenhe sat himself down next to the young lady, who shrank into a cornerat his approach, my uncle was confirmed in his original impression thatsomething dark and mysterious was going forward, or, as he always saidhimself, that "there was a screw loose somewhere.<>
---------------
" It's quite surprisinghow quickly he made up his mind to help the lady at any peril, if sheneeded any help.<>
---------------
Here, guard,pick up that gentleman's carving-knife.<>
---------------
He held up his lantern,and looked earnestly in my uncle's face, as he handed it in, when, byits light, my uncle saw, to his great surprise, that an immense crowdof mail-coach guards swarmed round the window, every one of whom had hiseyes earnestly fixed upon him too.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'My uncle looked at the guard for a few seconds, in some doubt whetherit wouldn't be better to wrench his blunderbuss from him, fire it in theface of the man with the big sword, knock the rest of the company overthe head with the stock, snatch up the young lady, and go off in thesmoke.<>
---------------
There was a huge fireplace in theroom into which they walked, and the chimney was blackened with smoke;but no warm blaze lighted it up now.<>
---------------
But here he was, cutting and slashing with two experienced swordsman,thrusting, and guarding, and poking, and slicing, and acquitting himselfin the most manful and dexterous manner possible, although up tothat time he had never been aware that he had the least notion of thescience.<>
---------------
The lady stepped lightlyaside, and snatching the young man's sword from his hand, before he hadrecovered his balance, drove him to the wall, and running it throughhim, and the panelling, up to the very hilt, pinned him there, hard andfast.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) '"The mail, the mail!" cried the lady, running up to my uncle andthrowing her beautiful arms round his neck; "we may yet escape.<>
---------------
" '"Well then, my dear, I'm afraidhe'll never come to the title," said my uncle, looking coolly at theyoung gentleman as he stood fixed up against the wall, in the cockchaferfashion that I have described.<>
---------------
"'The young lady put up her hand as if to caution my uncle not to do so,and said--No, she didn't say anything--she smiled.<>
---------------
I have no hope but in you!"'There was such an expression of terror in her beautiful face, that myuncle made up his mind at once.<>
---------------
He lifted her into the coach, toldher not to be frightened, pressed his lips to hers once more, and thenadvising her to draw up the window to keep the cold air out, mounted tothe box.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'My uncle swore a great oath that he never would marry anybody else,and the young lady drew in her head, and pulled up the window.<>
---------------
HOW Mr. PICKWICK SPED UPON HIS MISSION, AND HOW HE WASREINFORCED IN THE OUTSET BY A MOST UNEXPECTED AUXILIARYThe horses were put to, punctually at a quarter before nine nextmorning, and Mr. Pickwick and Sam Weller having each taken his seat, theone inside and the other out, the postillion was duly directed to repairin the first instance to Mr. Bob Sawyer's house, for the purpose oftaking up Mr. Benjamin Allen.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) It was with feelings of no small astonishment, when the carriage drew upbefore the door with the red lamp, and the very legible inscription of'Sawyer, late Nockemorf,' that Mr. Pickwick saw, on popping his head outof the coach window, the boy in the gray livery very busily employedin putting up the shutters--the which, being an unusual and anunbusinesslike proceeding at that hour of the morning, at once suggestedto his mind two inferences: the one, that some good friend and patientof Mr. Bob Sawyer's was dead; the other, that Mr. Bob Sawyer himself wasbankrupt.<>
---------------
It's the whole point of the thing, youknow--that, and leaving the business to take care of itself, as it seemsto have made up its mind not to take care of me.<>
---------------
Here's Ben; now then,jump in!'With these hurried words, Mr. Bob Sawyer pushed the postboy on one side,jerked his friend into the vehicle, slammed the door, put up the steps,wafered the bill on the street door, locked it, put the key in hispocket, jumped into the dickey, gave the word for starting, and did thewhole with such extraordinary precipitation, that before Mr. Pickwickhad well begun to consider whether Mr. Bob Sawyer ought to go or not,they were rolling away, with Mr. Bob Sawyer thoroughly established aspart and parcel of the equipage.<>
---------------
Thecongratulations of an Irish family, too, who were keeping up withthe chaise, and begging all the time, were of rather a boisterousdescription, especially those of its male head, who appeared to considerthe display as part and parcel of some political or other procession oftriumph.<>
---------------
Satisfied with this assurance, Mr. Pickwick once more drew his headinto the chaise and pulled up the glass; but he had scarcely resumed theconversation which Mr. Bob Sawyer had interrupted, when he was somewhatstartled by the apparition of a small dark body, of an oblong form,on the outside of the window, which gave sundry taps against it, as ifimpatient of admission.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick was on the point of replying to the question, and recitingMr. Benjamin Allen's name and honourable distinctions at full length,when the sprightly Mr. Bob Sawyer, with a view of rousing his friend toa sense of his situation, inflicted a startling pinch upon the fleshlypart of his arm, which caused him to jump up with a shriek.<>
---------------
Good-night, gentlemen!'With these words the old gentleman took up the candle-stick and openingthe room door, politely motioned towards the passage.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Although the roads were miry, and the drizzling rain came down harderthan it had done yet, and although the mud and wet splashed in at theopen windows of the carriage to such an extent that the discomfort wasalmost as great to the pair of insides as to the pair of outsides, stillthere was something in the motion, and the sense of being up and doing,which was so infinitely superior to being pent in a dull room, lookingat the dull rain dripping into a dull street, that they all agreed, onstarting, that the change was a great improvement, and wondered how theycould possibly have delayed making it as long as they had done.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'This is pleasant,' said Bob Sawyer, turning up his coat collar, andpulling the shawl over his mouth to concentrate the fumes of a glass ofbrandy just swallowed.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I say,' remonstrated Bob Sawyer, looking in at the coach window, asthey pulled up before the door of the Saracen's Head, Towcester, 'thiswon't do, you know.<>
---------------
The host of the Saracen's Head opportunely appeared at this moment, toconfirm Mr. Weller's statement relative to the accommodations of theestablishment, and to back his entreaties with a variety of dismalconjectures regarding the state of the roads, the doubt of fresh horsesbeing to be had at the next stage, the dead certainty of its raining allnight, the equally mortal certainty of its clearing up in the morning,and other topics of inducement familiar to innkeepers.<>
---------------
Lights in the Sun, John; make up the fire; the gentlemen are wet!'cried the landlord.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Sam left it with the landlady, and was returning to pull his master'sboots off, after drying himself by the kitchen fire, when glancingcasually through a half-opened door, he was arrested by the sight of agentleman with a sandy head who had a large bundle of newspapers lyingon the table before him, and was perusing the leading article of onewith a settled sneer which curled up his nose and all other featuresinto a majestic expression of haughty contempt.<>
---------------
He CRAMMED for it,to use a technical but expressive term; he read up for the subject, atmy desire, in the "Encyclopaedia Britannica.<>
---------------
There, Sir,' said Pott, folding up the paper quite exhausted, 'that isthe state of the case!'The landlord and waiter entering at the moment with dinner, caused Mr.Pott to lay his finger on his lips, in token that he considered his lifein Mr. Pickwick's hands, and depended on his secrecy.<>
---------------
So, gathering up his hat and newspaper, he stalked solemnly behind thelandlord to that humble apartment, and throwing himself on a settle bythe fireside, resumed his countenance of scorn, and began to read anddrink in silent dignity.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The stranger was still reading; he looked up and started.<>
---------------
With these words, Mr. Pott took up his position on an opposite settle,and selecting one from a little bundle of newspapers, began to readagainst his enemy.<>
---------------
Here,Mr. Slurk laughed very heartily, and folding up the paper so as to getat a fresh column conveniently, said, that the blockhead really amusedhim.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Yes, sir, it was,' replied Slurk; 'and BLUE BORE, Sir, if you like thatbetter; ha! ha!'Mr. Pott retorted not a word at this jocose insult, but deliberatelyfolded up his copy of the INDEPENDENT, flattened it carefully down,crushed it beneath his boot, spat upon it with great ceremony, and flungit into the fire.<>
---------------
The indignant Independent did not wait to hear the end of this personaldenunciation; for, catching up his carpet-bag, which was well stuffedwith movables, he swung it in the air as Pott turned away, and, lettingit fall with a circular sweep on his head, just at that particular angleof the bag where a good thick hairbrush happened to be packed, caused asharp crash to be heard throughout the kitchen, and brought him at onceto the ground.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Gentlemen,' cried Mr. Pickwick, as Pott started up and seizedthe fire-shovel--'gentlemen! Consider, for Heaven'ssake--help--Sam--here--pray, gentlemen--interfere, somebody.<>
---------------
Mr. Pickwick would unquestionably have suffered severely forhis humane interference, if Mr. Weller, attracted by his master'scries, had not rushed in at the moment, and, snatching up a meal--sack,effectually stopped the conflict by drawing it over the head andshoulders of the mighty Pott, and clasping him tight round theshoulders.<>
---------------
INVOLVING A SERIOUS CHANGE IN THE WELLER FAMILY, AND THEUNTIMELY DOWNFALL OF Mr. STIGGINSConsidering it a matter of delicacy to abstain from introducing eitherBob Sawyer or Ben Allen to the young couple, until they were fullyprepared to expect them, and wishing to spare Arabella's feelings asmuch as possible, Mr. Pickwick proposed that he and Sam should alight inthe neighbourhood of the George and Vulture, and that the two young menshould for the present take up their quarters elsewhere.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'You see, Mr. Samuel,' said the buxom female, 'as I was telling himyesterday, he will feel lonely, he can't expect but what he should, sir,but he should keep up a good heart, because, dear me, I'm sure we allpity his loss, and are ready to do anything for him; and there's nosituation in life so bad, Mr. Samuel, that it can't be mended.<>

---------------
With these words, Mr. Weller refilled and relighted his pipe, and oncemore summoning up a meditative expression of countenance, continued asfollows--'Therefore, my boy, as I do not see the adwisability o' stoppin hereto be married vether I vant to or not, and as at the same time I donot vish to separate myself from them interestin' members o' societyaltogether, I have come to the determination o' driving the Safety,and puttin' up vunce more at the Bell Savage, vich is my nat'ral bornelement, Sammy.<>

The healthy light of a fine October morning made even the dingy oldhouses brighten up a little; some of the dusty windows actually lookingalmost cheerful as the sun's rays gleamed upon them.<>
---------------
The noise of unlocking andopening doors echoed and re-echoed on every side; heads appeared as ifby magic in every window; the porters took up their stations for theday; the slipshod laundresses hurried off; the postman ran from house tohouse; and the whole legal hive was in a bustle.<>
---------------
Comforting himself with this reflection, Mr. Lowten extracted the plugfrom the door-key; having opened the door, replugged and repocketed hisBramah, and picked up the letters which the postman had dropped throughthe box, he ushered Mr. Pickwick into the office.<>
---------------
Here, in the twinklingof an eye, he divested himself of his coat, put on a threadbare garment,which he took out of a desk, hung up his hat, pulled forth a few sheetsof cartridge and blotting-paper in alternate layers, and, sticking a penbehind his ear, rubbed his hands with an air of great satisfaction.<>
---------------
We were keeping it up pretty tolerablyat the Stump last night, and I'm rather out of sorts this morning.<>
---------------
What do you think of his going toDemerara, too?What! And giving up what was offered him here!' exclaimed Mr. Pickwick.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'You have fully made up your mind to go?I have sir,' answered Job.<>
---------------
I thought I knew the face,' said Fogg, drawing up a chair, andlooking round him with a smile.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Now, Mr. Dodson,' said Fogg, putting up the pocket-book and drawing onhis gloves, 'I am at your service.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I see that you recollect it with satisfaction,' said Mr. Pickwick,attempting to call up a sneer for the first time in his life, andfailing most signally in so doing.<>
---------------
Well,' interposed Perker, 'is that all?It is all summed up in that,' rejoined Mr. Pickwick; 'they are mean,rascally, pettifogging robbers.<>
---------------
Seeing an open carriage with a hearty old gentleman in it,looking up very anxiously, he ventured to beckon him; on which, the oldgentleman jumped out directly.<>
---------------
Your hand, my boy! Why have I neverheard until the day before yesterday of your suffering yourself to becooped up in jail? And why did you let him do it, Perker?I couldn't help it, my dear Sir,' replied Perker, with a smile and apinch of snuff; 'you know how obstinate he is?Of course I do; of course I do,' replied the old gentleman.<>
---------------
You have not come up to London, of all places in the world, to tell usthat, my dear Sir, have you?' inquired Perker.<>
---------------
The long and the short of it is, then, that Bella at lastmustered up courage to tell me that Emily was very unhappy; that sheand your young friend Snodgrass had been in constant correspondence andcommunication ever since last Christmas; that she had very dutifullymade up her mind to run away with him, in laudable imitation of herold friend and school-fellow; but that having some compunctions ofconscience on the subject, inasmuch as I had always been rather kindlydisposed to both of them, they had thought it better in the firstinstance to pay me the compliment of asking whether I would have anyobjection to their being married in the usual matter-of-fact manner.<>
---------------
At last I got tired of rendering myselfunpleasant and making everybody miserable; so I hired a carriage atMuggleton, and, putting my own horses in it, came up to town, underpretence of bringing Emily to see Arabella.<>
---------------
By some extraordinary miracle he awoke of his own accord,when the coach stopped, and giving himself a good shake to stir up hisfaculties, went upstairs to execute his commission.<>
---------------
The ladies ran to Emily's bedroom todress, and the lover, taking up his hat, walked out of the room.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Dear, dear,' said Arabella, taking up the defence, 'what is the use ofasking all that now, especially when you know you had set your covetousold heart on a richer son-in-law, and are so wild and fierce besides,that everybody is afraid of you, except me? Shake hands with him, andorder him some dinner, for goodness gracious' sake, for he looks halfstarved; and pray have your wine up at once, for you'll not be tolerableuntil you have taken two bottles at least.<>

All three were habited in strict holiday costume; that isto say, they were wrapped up to the chins, and wore as many clothes aspossible, which is, and has been, a stage-coachman's idea of full dressever since stage-coaches were invented.<>

( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) The office of Wilkins Flasher, Esquire, of the Stock Exchange, was in afirst floor up a court behind the Bank of England; the house of WilkinsFlasher, Esquire, was at Brixton, Surrey; the horse and stanhope ofWilkins Flasher, Esquire, were at an adjacent livery stable; the groomof Wilkins Flasher, Esquire, was on his way to the West End to deliversome game; the clerk of Wilkins Flasher, Esquire, had gone to hisdinner; and so Wilkins Flasher, Esquire, himself, cried, 'Come in,' whenMr. Pell and his companions knocked at the counting-house door.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'I see there's a notice up this morning about Boffer,' observed Mr.Simmery.<>
---------------
We are going to send ourbutler to the sale to-morrow, to pick up some of that sixty-four.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Wilkins Flasher, Esquire, now condescended to receive Mr. Solomon Pell'sinstructions, and having filled up some printed forms, requested theparty to follow him to the bank, which they did: Mr. Weller and histhree friends staring at all they beheld in unbounded astonishment, andSam encountering everything with a coolness which nothing could disturb.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'Tell them they can come up at once, by all means,' said Mr. Pickwick.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Pickwick took two or three turns up and down the room; and, rubbinghis chin with his left hand as he did so, appeared lost in thought.<>
---------------
Hastilyseating himself, and calling up his accustomed pleasant looks, he gavethe required permission, and Sam Weller entered, followed by his father.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) 'He von't begin, sir,' rejoined Mr. Weller; 'he knows I ain't ekal toex-pressin' myself ven there's anythin' partickler to be done, and yethe'll stand and see me a-settin' here taking up your walable time, andmakin' a reg'lar spectacle o' myself, rayther than help me out vith asyllable.<>
---------------
With these words, Mr. Wellerplaced the pocket-book in Mr. Pickwick's hands, caught up his hat, andran out of the room with a celerity scarcely to be expected from socorpulent a subject.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) Mr. Weller reflected for a short time, and then, buttoning up his coatwith great determination, said--'I'll keep a pike.<>
---------------
The internal laughter occasioned by the triumphant success of his visit,which had convulsed not only Mr. Weller's face, but his arms, legs, andbody also, during the locking up of the pocket-book, suddenly gave placeto the most dignified gravity as he heard these words.<>
---------------

Trundle replied that shefelt herself quite equal to it, and that she had made up her mind to go;upon which the doctor, who was a wise and discreet doctor, and knew whatwas good for himself, as well as for other people, said that perhaps ifMrs.<>
---------------
( Dickens The Pickwick papers ) And in the midst of all this, stood Mr. Pickwick, his countenancelighted up with smiles, which the heart of no man, woman, or child,could resist: himself the happiest of the group: shaking hands, overand over again, with the same people, and when his own hands were notso employed, rubbing them with pleasure: turning round in a differentdirection at every fresh expression of gratification or curiosity, andinspiring everybody with his looks of gladness and delight.<>

It was dusk turningto dark; and as all that mountain air sharpens suddenly after sunset, asmall stove stood on the flagstones, glowing with red eyes like agoblin, and painting a red pattern on the pavement; but scarcely a rayof it reached the lower bricks of the great bare, brown brick wall thatwent soaring up above them into the deep blue night.<>

"I can tell you, people gotconsiderably worked up about Gallup's murder, and Stein's murder, andthen old man Merton's murder, and now Judge Gwynne's murder, and adouble murder by Dalmon, who was well known in the States.<>

Then the sunset seemed to break up into patches: red lanternsswinging from garden trees and a pond gleaming red with reflection; andthen all the colour seemed to cluster again into a great rose of redcrystal, a jewel that irradiated the world like a red sun, save for theshadow of a tall figure with a high head-dress as of some prehistoricpriest; and then faded again till nothing was left but a flame of wildred beard blowing in the wind upon a wild grey moor.<>

All these things,which may be seen later from other angles and in other moods than hisown, rose up in his memory at the challenge and began to form themselvesinto anecdotes and arguments.<>

The dead man was inevening-dress, and his long, black legs, so thin as to be almostspidery, were sprawling at different angles up the steep bank from whichhe had fallen.<>

(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Father Brown strolled up to the hole and ducked his head under it.<>
---------------
But I must say there was something downright creepy aboutthat little goblin with the yellow hair, that seemed to play up to theimpression.<>

Thenthere was his queer, stony silence, like a troglodyte's; I'll never denythat it all worked me up until I felt there was a sort of monster in thedock.<>

He returned,and shut himself up in the bungalow, where he kept all his privatedocuments about treasonable practices.<>

They were part of an eccentric but expensive toy, said to have been madeby the freak of some rich Eastern prince, and Mr. Smart had picked it upat some sale or in some curiosity shop, such as he frequented for thepurpose of lumbering up his house with unique and useless things.<>

"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "It's extraordinary how he leaves things about," said Mr. Smart's headclerk, Jameson, who had come up from the office to assist the newsecretary, "and he won't even put up those ramshackle old bars acrosshis ramshackle old door.<>

And yet hecould hardly feel sure that he was not making up poetry in his sleep.<>

(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "I've locked up the door, anyhow," he said.<>

An Arab from the desert hadwalked up the public road and stopped in front of the house of Mr.Peregrine Smart, where a bowl of artificial goldfish was kept in aninner room; he had then sung or recited a little poem, and the bowl hadexploded like a bomb and the fishes vanished into thin air.<>
---------------
I woke up to hear Jamesonchallenging the stranger from the balcony; then I heard him runningdownstairs and putting up the bars, and then in two strides I was on thebalcony myself.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "Do you think," asked Boyle, 'that the Count or the colonel, or any ofthese Eastern travellers have anything to do with it? Do you think itis--preternatural?"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "I will grant you this," said the priest gravely, "if the Count, or thecolonel, or any of your neighbours did dress up in Arab masquerade andcreep up to this house in the dark--then it was preternatural.<>

Hence, to see the sapphire Gates of Bluebeard's BluePalace, or portions of the Enchanted Grove of Golden Orange Trees,leaning up against the wall to be festooned with cobwebs or nibbled bymice, did not give him that soothing sense of a return to simplicitywhich we all ought to have when given a glimpse of that wonderland ofour childhood.<>

(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) V THE VANISHING OF VAUDREYSIR ARTHUR VAUDREY, in his light-grey summer suit, and wearing on hisgrey head the white hat which he so boldly affected, went walkingbriskly up the road by the river from his own house to the little groupof houses that were almost like outhouses to his own, entered thatlittle hamlet, and then vanished completely as if he had been carriedaway by the fairies.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) It had been at an early hour of a very brilliant summer day that the oldgentleman had gone gaily striding up the road, swinging his walking-stick and flapping his yellow gloves.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Thus it happened that when the new day's dawn broke without news, FatherBrown was early afoot and on the look-out for anything; his black,stumpy figure could be seen pacing the garden path where the garden wasembanked along the river, as he scanned the landscape up and down withhis short-sighted and rather misty gaze.<>
---------------
His longslits of eyes were rather sleepy and, indeed, he was an elderlygentleman to be up so early; but he had a look at once robust andweatherbeaten, as of an old farmer or sea captain who had once been outin all weathers.<>
---------------
Somepeople would feel a bit jolted out of the mood of confidence by thatqueer old elephant creeping up like a snake.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Father Brown reflected for a moment and then said: "I think I shouldlike to go up to the house now and have a talk to Dr.<>
---------------
The day which had been brilliant fromdaybreak was now glowing and even glaring; but Father Brown carried hisblack bundle of an umbrella as well as wearing his black umbrella of ahat; and seemed, in a general way, buttoned up to breast the storm.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Sir Arthur Vaudrey was glaring and grinning up at him; the face wasturned up so that he could have put his foot on it; the head was thrownback, with its wig of whitish yellow hair towards him, so that he sawthe face upside down.<>
---------------
Just about here the tidecomes up from the sea and makes an eddy that washed the body into thecreek and left it when the tide retired.<>
---------------
Poor Vaudrey diedup in the hamlet, somehow; after all, I don't think he committedsuicide; but the trouble is who would, or could, have killed him up inthat potty little place?"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) He began to draw rough designs with the point of his stumpy umbrella onthe strip of sand.<>
---------------
And who else, except the butcher,could have stood up to him? The next shop is kept by an old woman.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) He made a punch with the ferrule of his umbrella to represent thepoliceman, and remained moodily staring up the river.<>
---------------
"I wish you'd just scull me up theriver; I want to look at those houses from the back.<>
---------------
Could you stop here a moment? We could tie up the boat tothat post.<>
---------------
He'd cut his handand couldn't shave himself; so he came up here.<>
---------------
It took but an instant for him to pick up therazor and cut the throat and come back to the counter.<>
---------------
It was not altogether unnatural that you despaired ofclearing yourself, and preferred to clear up the mess; to clean thefloor and throw the corpse into the river at night, in a potato sackrather loosely tied.<>
---------------
"I was abusing Dalmon as ablackmailer and a blackguard an hour or two ago, and yet it breaks meall up to hear he really did this, after all.<>
---------------
"A man creeps up behindanother man and cuts his throat, while he is smiling pleasantly at theceiling in a barber's chair, and you say it was self-defence!"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "I do not say it was justifiable self-defence," replied the other.<>
---------------
"Itold you that artists turn a picture the wrong way up when they want tosee it the right way up.<>
---------------
He was staring right up atthe ceiling; but his eyes seemed to be turned inwards, and he laughed sothat my blood ran cold.<>
---------------
Well, he couldn't sayfairer than that, could he? But he's so anxious to get the thing settledthat he offered to take me up in his own car to Musgrave Moss.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Musgrave advanced into the centre of the room towards her, almost like abeautifully dressed wax-work wound up to walk.<>
---------------
She did not answer; but they turned awaytogether, walking down the long gallery as if in debate, the short, bull-necked man with the beard bringing up the rear like some grotesquegoblin page.<>
---------------
"I'd no idea anybody did really keep up the 'Mysteries of Udolpho' inthis fashion.<>
---------------
Sometimes they make up suits of armour out ofdifferent bits; but that suit all covered one man, and covered him verycompletely.<>
---------------
There'sno sense in going up to a fashionable young man in Bond Street andsaying: 'Excuse me, but have you committed a crime too horrible for ahuman being?' If he's bad enough to do it, he's certainly bad enough todeny it.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "I've been locking up the Musgrave family," he said.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Father Brown jumped up with one of his rare but rapid movements, butremained with his hands on the table, leaning forward and looking hisfriend in the face.<>
---------------
When I saw that fancy picture of the black figure with the greyhair taking a flying leap across the moat I knew instantly that it was ayoung man dressed up as an old man.<>
---------------
It was because he himself was coming up that nightby train.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) The eccentricity of the lady was a great contrast to the conventionalityof the two gentlemen, who were braced and buttoned up in all the stifferfashion of that far-off day, from the tips of their gloves to theirbright top hats.<>
---------------
I suppose it wouldn't do very much harmif somebody dressed up as a German spy and pretended to have told allsorts of lies to the Germans.<>
---------------
"He's alwaysgoing about showing up adepts, as he calls it.<>
---------------
He'd havetried to show up Buddha or Moses.<>
---------------
But then," headded, looking across at the lady and screwing up his eyes, "I supposeI'm prejudiced in favour of anything that's called brown.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "All the same," muttered the sceptical Thomas, as he brought up therear, "I should very much like to know what the brown beast did comehere for, if he didn't come to tell fortunes.<>
---------------
"That's just what we meant; to link up the great religions of East andWest; Buddha and Christ.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) As he spoke, the Master of the Mountain seemed to come to life like acataleptic, and moved gravely round another quarter segment of thecircle, and took up his position outside their own row of arches,standing with his back to them and looking now towards the idol's back.<>
---------------
But ithad licked up the jewel.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) This time Hardcastle did not attempt to pick it up again; but hisdemeanour was somewhat notable.<>
---------------
If anybody had come into my tent, I'd have had to look up Bumps in anencyclopaedia.<>
---------------
"Hunter leapt forward and leaned out of the window; in aflash he could tear off his glove, tuck up his sleeve, and thrust hishand back round the other side of the pillar, while he gripped theIndian with the other hand and halloed out that he'd caught the thief.<>
---------------
Ifhe was entirely innocent, why the devil didn't he say so? Why wasn't heindignant at being accused and searched? Why did he only sit smiling andhinting in a sly way what wild and wonderful things he could do?"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "Ah!" cried Father Brown, with a sharp note in his voice: "there youcome up against it! Against everything these people don't and won'tunderstand.<>
---------------
We, whose fathers at least were Christians, who havegrown up under those mediaeval arches even if we bedizen them with allthe demons in Asia--we have the very opposite ambition and the veryopposite shame.<>
---------------
In the distance a melancholymansion with four towers like a castle, which in the grey evening hadbeen but a dim and distant huddle of walls like a crumbling cloud,seemed to spring into the foreground, and stood up with all itsembattled, roofs and blank and staring windows.<>
---------------
For to some of thosegrouped under the tree that castle was, indeed, a thing faded and almostforgotten, which was to prove its power to spring up again in theforeground of their lives.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) The light also clothed for an instant, in the same silver splendour, atleast one human figure that stood up as motionless as one of the towers.<>
---------------
It was that of a tall man standing on a rise of ground above the rest,who were mostly sitting on the grass or stooping to gather up the hamperand crockery.<>
---------------
Her English husband, General Outram, a very stolid Anglo-Indian, witha bald head and black moustache and whiskers of antiquated pattern,looked up with one stiff movement and then resumed his occupation oftidying up.<>
---------------
But the tallman in the short cloak stood up literally like a statue in the twilight;his eagle face under the full glare had been like the bust of a RomanEmperor, and the carved eyelids had not moved.<>
---------------
Have you never read 'In Memoriam'? Haveyou never heard of David and Jonathan? What broke poor Marne up was thedeath of his brother; at least, he was really a first cousin, but hadbeen brought up with him like a brother, and was much nearer than mostbrothers.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "And after that," asked the young man, "did he shut himself up likethis?"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "He went abroad at first," she answered; "away to Asia and the cannibalIslands and Lord knows where.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) As they moved off in procession, Mallow and the general brought up therear; and the latter said abruptly, lowering his voice:"I don't want that little cad Cockspur to hear but as you've asked you'dbetter know.<>
---------------
After all, what else was there to forgive?"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Father Brown had risen and shaken his shapeless clothes, and stoodlooking at the young man with screwed up eyes and slightly quizzicalexpression.<>
---------------
The next moment he had turned, and picking up his equallyshapeless umbrella and large shabby hat, went stumping down the street.<>
---------------
James Mair reallywas devoted to his cousin, who'd grown up with him like a youngerbrother.<>
---------------
Maurice was mad onacting and had taken up Romaine (who was then a rising but still astruggling man), and financed the fellow and his ventures in return fortaking lessons from the professional in his own hobby of amateur acting.<>
---------------
And queerly enough, while I'd been worrying about him up to that moment,the instant he was dead all my pity was for the man who killed him; asit is to this day and hour.<>
---------------
As it was, he cleaned up the mess with marvellousswiftness; long before I could trail back to the sea-shore on my twofeet his impetuous practicality had managed everything; the corpse wistemporarily buried in the sandhills and the unhappy homicide had beenpersuaded to do the only thing he could do--to flee for his life.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) You know the rest; poor Jim remained abroad for many years;later, when the whole thing had been hushed up or forgotten, he returnedto his dismal castle and automatically inherited the title.<>
---------------
It might seem tosome a detail; but for him it was that stiff figure that stood up like astanding note of interrogation.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) He turned to gather up his hat and umbrella; but when he had got to thedoor he seemed to remember something and turned back.<>
---------------
Coming up close toOutram, he gazed up into his face with a rather helpless expression, asof a dying fish, and made a motion as if to hold him by the waistcoat.<>
---------------
Thesecond surprise, when they began the bombardment by sending up word tothe castle with an urgent request for an interview, was the figure whichcame forth from those gloomy gates to receive the deputation in the nameof the noble owner.<>
---------------
" Sir John was slightly sulky,as his aristocratic friends had persuaded him to give up the great scoopof publicity in return for the privilege of being really inside aSociety secret.<>
---------------
"That's their only idea of pardoninga poor fellow for a piece of folly; to wall him up alive and starve himto death with fasts and penances and pictures of hell-fire.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Viola Grayson began calmly to move up the great flight of steps; andOutram muttered in his thick black moustache: "He won't cut her dead ashe did my wife, I fancy.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Father Brown, who seemed in a collapse of resignation, looked up at himfor a moment.<>
---------------
(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "Maurice!"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) "What is it, dear?" cried Lady Outram, and began to run up the steps;for the other woman was swaying as if she might fall down the wholestone flight.<>
---------------
In the same way, they certainly wouldn't want him to dress up as a monkwhen he wasn't a monk.<>
---------------
"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) He stood up abruptly and looked round at them.<>
---------------
He is the sort of manwho 'sees through' tramps and trips them up in telling lies.<>
---------------
But was there not something wrong with the man whotalked in that calm way about being a murderer? Was it possible that thepriest was a little mad?"Don't you think," he said, abruptly; "that this notion of yours, of aman trying to feel like a criminal, might make him a little too tolerantof crime?"(Chesterton The secret of father Brown ) Father Brown sat up and spoke in a more staccato style.<>
