Pāgina 358 - My client's hopes and prospects are ruined, and it is no figure of speech to say that her occupation is gone indeed. The bill is down — but there is no tenant. Eligible single gentlemen pass and repass — but there is no invitation for them to inquire within or without. All is gloom and silence in the house; even the voice of the child is hushed; his infant sports are disregarded when his mother weeps; his "alley tors" and his "commoneys" are alike neglected; he forgets the long familiar cry of...
Pāgina 308 - DO skate, Mr. Winkle,' said Arabella. 'I like to see it so much.' 'Oh, it is SO graceful,' said another young lady. A third young lady said it was elegant, and a fourth expressed her opinion that it was 'swan-like.
Pāgina 358 - ... to you, that on one occasion, when he returned from the country, he distinctly and in terms, offered her marriage: previously however, taking special care that there should be no...

Pāgina 342 - No it don't," replied Sam, reading on very quickly, to avoid contesting the point. " ' Except of me Mary my dear as your Walentine and think over what I've eaid. — My dear Mary I will now conclude.' That's all," said Sam. " That's rayther a sudden pull up, ain't it, Sammy?" inquired Mr. Weller. ' " " Not a bit on it," said Sam ; " she'll vish there wos more, and that's the great art o
Pāgina 364 - I never had occasion to spell it more than once or twice in my life, but I spells it with a *V.'" Here a voice in the gallery exclaimed aloud, "Quite right too, Samivel, quite right. Put it down a we, my Lord, put it down a we.
Pāgina 356 - Of this man Pickwick I will say little; the subject presents but few attractions; and I, gentlemen, am not the man, nor are you, gentlemen, the men, to delight in the contemplation of revolting heartlessness, and of systematic villany.
Pāgina 358 - And then follows this very remarkable expression, Don't trouble yourself about the warmingpan. The warming-pan ? Why, gentlemen, who does trouble himself about a warming-pan? When was the peace of mind of man or woman broken or disturbed by a warming-pan, which is in itself a harmless, a useful, and I will add, gentlemen, a comforting article of domestic furniture? Why is Mrs. Bardell so earnestly entreated not to agitate herself about this warming-pan, unless (as is no doubt the case) it is a mere...
