DAVID COPPERFIELD AND PEGGOTTY BY THE PARLOUR FIRE

"David Copperfield," Chapter II

"Peggotty," says I, suddenly, "were you ever married?"

"Lord, Master Davy," replied Peggotty, "what's put marriage in your head?"

She answered with such a start, that it quite awoke me....

"But were you ever married, Peggotty?" says I. "You are a very handsome woman, an't you?"

PAUL DOMBEY AND FLORENCE ON THE BEACH AT BRIGHTON

PAUL DOMBEY AND FLORENCE ON THE BEACH AT BRIGHTON

"Dombey and Son," Chapter VIII

His favourite spot was quite a lonely one, far away from most loungers; and with Florence sitting by his side at work, or reading to him, or talking to him, and the wind blowing on his face, and the water coming up among the wheels of his bed, he wanted nothing more.

"Set 'em out near the hind wheels, child, that's the best place" said their friend, superintending the arrangements from above. "Now hand up the teapot for a little more hot water, and a pinch of fresh tea, and then both of you eat and drink as much as you can, and don't spare anything; that's all I ask of you."

PIP AND JOE GARGERY

PIP AND JOE GARGERY

"If you can cough any trifle on it up, Pip, I'd recommend you to do it," said Joe, all aghast. "Manners is manners, but still your elth's your elth."

MRS. KENWIGS AND THE FOUR LITTLE KENWIGSES

"Nicholas Nickleby," Chapter XIV

"Oh! they're too beautiful to live, much too beautiful!" sobbed Mrs. Kenwigs. On hearing this alarming presentiment ... all four little girls raised a hideous cry, and burying their heads in their mother's lap simultaneously, screamed until the eight flaxen tails vibrated again.

THE RUNAWAY COUPLE

THE RUNAWAY COUPLE

"Christmas Stories" The Holly Tree, Second Branch

So Boots goes up stairs to the Angel, and there he finds Master Harry on a e normous sofa, immense at any time, but looking like the Great Bed of Ware, compared with him, a drying the eyes of Miss Norah with his pocket hankecher. Their little legs was entirely off the ground, of course, and it really is not possible for Boots to express to me how small them children looked.

LITTLE EM'LY

LITTLE EM'LY

"David Copperfield," Chapter III

The light, bold, fluttering little figure turned and came back safe to me, and I soon laughed at my fears, and at the cry I had uttered; fruitlessly in any case, for there was no one near.
