          Dickens [1] : The [1] Posthumous [1] Papers [1] of [1] the [2] Pickwick [1] Club [1]

          Chapter [1] XXXIV [1] (excerpt [1] )

          Scene [1] One [1] : Mr [1] . Pickwick [2] is [1] accused [1] of [2] Breach [1] of [3] Promise [1] and [1] Must [1] have [1] his [1] day [1] in [1] court [1]

     "I [1] wonder [1] what [1] the [3] foreman [1] of [4] the [4] jury [1] , whoever [1] he'll [1] be [1] , has [1] got [1] for [1] breakfast [1] ," said [1] Mr [2] . Snodgrass [1] , by [1] way [1] of [5] keeping [1] up [1] a [1] conversation [1] on [1] the [5] eventful [1] morning [1] of [6] the [6] fourteenth [1] of [7] February [1] .

     "Ah [1] !" said [2] Perker [1] , "I [2] hope [1] he's [1] got [2] a [2] good [1] one [2] ."

     "Why [1] so [1] ?" inquired [1] Mr [3] . Pickwick [3] .

     "Highly [1] important [1] —very [1] important [2] , my [1] dear [1] Sir [1] ," replied [1] Perker [2] . "A [3] good [2] , contented [1] , well-breakfasted [1] juryman [1] is [2] a [4] capital [1] thing [1] to [1] get [1] hold [1] of [8] . Discontented [1] or [1] hungry [1] jurymen [1] , my [2] dear [2] sir [2] , always [1] find [1] for [2] the [7] plaintiff [1] ."

     "Bless [1] my [3] heart [1] ," said [3] Mr [4] . Pickwick [4] , looking [1] very [2] blank [1] , "what [2] do [1] they [1] do [2] that [1] for [3] ?"

     "Why [2] , I [3] don't [1] know [1] ," replied [2] the [8] little [1] man [1] coolly [1] ; "saves [1] time [1] , I [4] suppose [1] . If [1] it's [1] near [1] dinner-time [1] , the [9] foreman [2] takes [1] out [1] his [2] watch [1] when [1] the [10] jury [2] has [2] retired [1] , and [2] says [1] , "Dear [3] me [1] , gentlemen [1] , ten [1] minutes [1] to [2] five [1] , I [5] declare [1] ! I [6] dine [1] at [1] five [2] , gentlemen [2] ." "So [2] do [3] I [7] ," says [2] everybody [1] else [1] , except [1] two [1] men [1] who [1] ought [1] to [3] have [2] dined [1] at [2] three [1] and [3] seem [1] more [1] than [1] half [1] disposed [1] to [4] stand [1] out [2] in [2] consequence [1] . The [11] foreman [3] smiles [1] , and [4] puts [1] up [2] his [3] watch [2] :—"Well [1] , gentlemen [3] , what [3] do [4] we [1] say [1] , plaintiff [2] or [2] defendant [1] , gentlemen [4] ? I [8] rather [1] think [1] , so [3] far [1] as [1] I [9] am [1] concerned [1] , gentlemen [5] ,—I [10] say [2] , I [11] rather [2] think [2] —but [1] don't [2] let [1] that [2] influence [1] you [1] —I [12] rather [3] think [3] the [12] plaintiff's [1] the [13] man [2] ." Upon [1] this [1] , two [2] or [3] three [2] other [1] men [2] are [1] sure [1] to [5] say [3] that [3] they [2] think [4] so [4] too [1] —as [2] of [9] course [1] they [3] do [5] ; and [5] then [1] they [4] get [2] on [2] very [3] unanimously [1] and [6] comfortably [1] . Ten [2] minutes [2] past [1] nine [1] !" said [4] the [14] little [2] man [3] , looking [2] at [3] his [4] watch [3] ."Time [2] we [2] were [1] off [1] , my [4] dear [4] sir [3] ; breach [2] of [10] promise [2] trial-court [1] is [3] generally [1] full [1] in [3] such [1] cases [1] . You [2] had [1] better [1] ring [1] for [4] a [5] coach [1] , my [5] dear [5] sir [4] , or [4] we [3] shall [1] be [2] rather [4] late [1] ."

      Mr [5] . Pickwick [5] immediately [1] rang [1] the [15] bell [1] , and [7] a [6] coach [2] having [1] been [1] procured [1] , the [16] four [1] Pickwickians [1] and [8] Mr [6] . Perker [3] ensconced [1] themselves [1] therein [1] , and [9] drove [1] to [6] Guildhall [1] ; Sam [1] Weller [1] , Mr [7] . Lowten [1] , and [10] the [17] blue [1] bag [1] , following [1] in [4] a [7] cab [1] .

     "Lowten [2] ," said [5] Perker [4] , when [2] they [5] reached [1] the [18] outer [1] hall [1] of [11] the [19] court [2] , "put [1] Mr [8] . Pickwick's [1] friends [1] in [5] the [20] students [1] " box [1] ; Mr [9] . Pickwick [6] himself [1] had [2] better [2] sit [1] by [2] me [2] . This [2] way [2] , my [6] dear [6] sir [5] , this [3] way [3] ." Taking [1] Mr [10] . Pickwick [7] by [3] the [21] coat [1] sleeve [1] , the [22] little [3] man [4] led [1] him [1] to [7] the [23] low [1] seat [1] just [1] beneath [1] the [24] desks [1] of [12] the [25] King's [1] Counsel [1] , which [1] is [4] constructed [1] for [5] the [26] convenience [1] of [13] attorneys [1] , who [2] from [1] that [4] spot [1] can [1] whisper [1] into [1] the [27] ear [1] of [14] the [28] leading [1] counsel [2] in [6] the [29] case [1] , any [1] instructions [1] that [5] may [1] be [3] necessary [1] during [1] the [30] progress [1] of [15] the [31] trial [1] . The [32] occupants [1] of [16] this [4] seat [2] are [2] invisible [1] to [8] the [33] great [1] body [1] of [17] spectators [1] , inasmuch [1] as [3] they [6] sit [2] on [3] a [8] much [1] lower [1] level [1] than [2] either [1] the [34] barristers [1] or [5] the [35] audience [1] , whose [1] seats [1] are [3] raised [1] above [1] the [36] floor [1] . Of [18] course [2] they [7] have [3] their [1] backs [1] to [9] both [1] , and [11] their [2] faces [1] towards [1] the [37] judge [1] .

     "That's [1] the [38] witness-box [1] , I [13] suppose [2] ?" said [6] Mr [11] . Pickwick [8] , pointing [1] to [10] a [9] kind [1] of [19] pulpit [1] , with [1] a [10] brass [1] rail [1] , on [4] his [5] left [1] hand [1] .

     "That's [2] the [39] witness-box [2] , my [7] dear [7] sir [6] ," replied [3] Perker [5] , disinterring [1] a [11] quantity [1] of [20] papers [2] from [2] the [40] blue [2] bag [2] , which [2] Lowten [3] had [3] just [2] deposited [1] at [4] his [6] feet [1] .

     "And [12] that [6] ," said [7] Mr [12] . Pickwick [9] , pointing [2] to [11] a [12] couple [1] of [21] enclosed [1] seats [2] on [5] his [7] right [1] , "that's [3] where [1] the [41] jurymen [2] sit [3] , is [5] it [1] not [1] ?"

     "The [42] identical [1] place [1] , my [8] dear [8] Sir [7] ," replied [4] Perker [6] , tapping [1] the [43] lid [1] of [22] his [8] snuff-box [1] .

      Mr [13] . Pickwick [10] stood [1] up [3] in [7] a [13] state [1] of [23] great [2] agitation [1] , and [13] took [1] a [14] glance [1] at [5] the [44] court [3] . There [1] were [2] already [1] a [15] pretty [1] large [1] sprinkling [1] of [24] spectators [2] in [8] the [45] gallery [1] , and [14] a [16] numerous [1] muster [1] of [25] gentlemen [6] in [9] wigs [1] , in [10] the [46] barristers [2] " seats [3] , who [3] presented [1] , as [4] a [17] body [2] , all [1] that [7] pleasing [1] and [15] extensive [1] variety [1] of [26] nose [1] and [16] whisker [1] for [6] which [3] the [47] Bar [1] of [27] England [1] is [6] so [5] justly [1] celebrated [1] . Such [2] of [28] the [48] gentlemen [7] as [5] had [4] a [18] brief [1] to [12] carry [1] , carried [1] it [2] in [11] as [6] conspicuous [1] a [19] manner [1] as [7] possible [1] , and [17] occasionally [1] scratched [1] their [3] noses [1] therewith [1] , to [13] impress [1] the [49] fact [1] more [2] strongly [1] on [6] the [50] observation [1] of [29] the [51] spectators [3] . Other [2] gentlemen [8] , who [4] had [5] no [1] briefs [1] to [14] show [1] , carried [2] under [1] their [4] arms [1] goodly [1] octavos [1] , with [2] a [20] red [1] label [1] behind [1] , and [18] that [8] under-done-pie-crust-coloured [1] cover [1] , which [4] is [7] technically [1] known [1] as [8] "law [1] calf [1] ." Others [1] , who [5] had [6] neither [1] briefs [2] nor [1] books [1] , thrust [1] their [5] hands [1] into [2] their [6] pockets [1] , and [19] looked [1] as [9] wise [1] as [10] they [8] conveniently [1] could [1] ; others [2] , again [1] , moved [1] here [1] and [20] there [2] with [3] great [3] restlessness [1] and [21] earnestness [1] of [30] manner [2] , content [1] to [15] awaken [1] thereby [1] the [52] admiration [1] and [22] astonishment [1] of [31] the [53] uninitiated [1] strangers [1] . The [54] whole [1] , to [16] the [55] great [4] wonderment [1] of [32] Mr [14] , Pickwick [11] , were [3] divided [1] into [3] little [4] groups [1] , who [6] were [4] chatting [1] and [23] discussing [1] the [56] news [1] of [33] the [57] day [2] in [12] the [58] most [1] unfeeling [1] manner [3] possible [2] —just [3] as [11] if [2] no [2] trial [2] at [6] all [2] were [5] coming [1] on [7] .

      A [21] bow [1] from [3] Mr [15] . Phunky [1] , as [12] he [1] entered [1] , and [24] took [2] his [9] seat [3] behind [2] the [59] row [1] appropriated [1] to [17] the [60] King's [2] Counsel [3] , attracted [1] Mr [16] . Pickwick's [2] attention [1] ; and [25] he [2] had [7] scarcely [1] returned [1] it [3] , when [3] Mr [17] . Serjeant [1] Snubbin [1] appeared [1] , followed [1] by [4] Mr [18] . Mallard [1] , who [7] half [2] hid [1] the [61] Serjeant [2] behind [3] a [22] large [2] crimson [1] bag [3] , which [5] he [3] placed [1] on [8] his [10] table [1] , and [26] , after [1] shaking [1] hands [2] with [4] Perker [7] , withdrew [1] . Then [2] there [3] entered [2] two [3] or [6] three [3] more [3] Serjeants [1] ; and [27] among [1] them [1] , one [3] with [5] a [23] fat [1] body [3] and [28] a [24] red [2] face [1] , who [8] nodded [1] in [13] a [25] friendly [1] manner [4] to [18] Mr [19] . Serjeant [3] Snubbin [2] , and [29] said [8] it [4] was [1] a [26] fine [1] morning [2] .

     "Who's [1] that [9] red-faced [1] man [5] , who [9] said [9] it [5] was [2] a [27] fine [2] morning [3] , and [30] nodded [2] to [19] our [1] counsel [4] ?" whispered [1] Mr [20] . Pickwick [12] .

     "Mr [21] . Serjeant [4] Buzfuz [1] ," replied [5] Perker [8] . "He's [2] opposed [1] to [20] us [1] ; he [4] leads [1] on [9] the [62] other [3] side [1] . That [10] gentleman [1] behind [4] him [2] is [8] Mr [22] . Skimpin [1] , his [11] junior [1] ."

      Mr [23] . Pickwick [13] was [3] on [10] the [63] point [1] of [34] inquiring [1] , with [6] great [5] abhorrence [1] of [35] the [64] man's [1] cold-blooded [1] villainy [1] , how [1] Mr [24] , Serjeant [5] Buzfuz [2] , who [10] was [4] counsel [5] for [7] the [65] opposite [1] party [1] , dared [1] to [21] presume [1] to [22] tell [1] Mr [25] . Serjeant [6] Snubbin [3] , who [11] was [5] counsel [6] for [8] him [3] , that [11] it [6] was [6] a [28] fine [3] morning [4] , when [4] he [5] was [7] interrupted [1] by [5] a [29] general [1] rising [1] of [36] the [66] barristers [3] , and [31] a [30] loud [1] cry [1] of [37] "Silence [1] !" from [4] the [67] officers [1] of [38] the [68] court [4] . Looking [3] round [1] , he [6] found [1] that [12] this [5] was [8] caused [1] by [6] the [69] entrance [1] of [39] the [70] judge [2] .

      Mr [26] . Justice [1] Stareleigh [1] (who [12] sat [1] in [14] the [71] absence [1] of [40] the [72] Chief [1] Justice [2] , occasioned [1] by [7] indisposition [1] ) was [9] a [31] most [2] particularly [1] short [1] man [6] , and [32] so [6] fat [2] , that [13] he [7] seemed [1] all [3] face [2] and [33] waistcoat [1] . He [8] rolled [1] in [15] , upon [2] two [4] little [5] turned [1] legs [1] , and [34] having [2] bobbed [1] gravely [1] to [23] the [73] Bar [2] , who [13] bobbed [2] gravely [2] to [24] him [4] , put [2] his [12] little [6] legs [2] underneath [1] his [13] table [2] , and [35] his [14] little [7] three-cornered [1] hat [1] upon [3] it [7] ; and [36] when [5] Mr [27] . Justice [3] Stareleigh [2] had [8] done [1] this [6] , all [4] you [3] could [2] see [1] of [41] him [5] was [10] two [5] queer [1] little [8] eyes [1] , one [4] broad [1] pink [1] face [3] , and [37] somewhere [1] about [1] half [3] of [42] a [32] big [1] and [38] very [4] comical-looking [1] wig [1] .

      The [74] judge [3] had [9] no [3] sooner [1] taken [1] his [15] seat [4] , than [3] the [75] officer [1] on [11] the [76] floor [2] of [43] the [77] court [5] called [1] out [3] "Silence [2] !" in [16] a [33] commanding [1] tone [1] , upon [4] which [6] another [1] officer [2] in [17] the [78] gallery [2] cried [1] "Silence [3] !" in [18] an [1] angry [1] manner [5] , whereupon [1] three [4] or [7] four [2] more [4] ushers [1] shouted [1] "Silence [4] !" in [19] a [34] voice [1] of [44] indignant [1] remonstrance [1] . This [7] being [1] done [2] , a [35] gentleman [2] in [20] black [1] , who [14] sat [2] below [1] the [79] judge [4] , proceeded [1] to [25] call [1] over [1] the [80] names [1] of [45] the [81] jury [3] ; and [39] after [2] a [36] great [6] deal [1] of [46] bawling [1] , it [8] was [11] discovered [1] that [14] only [1] ten [3] special [1] jurymen [3] were [6] present [1] . Upon [5] this [8] , Mr [28] . Serjeant [7] Buzfuz [3] prayed [1] a [37] tales [1] ; the [82] gentleman [3] in [21] black [2] then [3] proceeded [2] to [26] press [1] into [4] the [83] special [2] jury [4] , two [6] of [47] the [84] common [1] jurymen [4] ; and [40] a [38] greengrocer [1] and [41] a [39] chemist [1] were [7] caught [1] directly [1] .

     "Answer [1] to [27] your [1] names [2] , gentlemen [9] , that [15] you [4] may [2] be [4] sworn [1] ," said [10] the [85] gentleman [4] in [22] black [3] . "Richard [1] Upwitch [1] ."

     "Here [2] ," said [11] the [86] greengrocer [2] .

     "Thomas [1] Groffin [1] ."

     "Here [3] ," said [12] the [87] chemist [2] .

     "Take [1] the [88] book [1] , gentlemen [10] . You [5] shall [2] well [2] and [42] truly [1] try [1] —"

     "I [14] beg [1] this [9] court's [1] pardon [1] ," said [13] the [89] chemist [3] , who [15] was [12] a [40] tall [1] , thin [1] , yellow-visaged [1] man [7] , "but [2] I [15] hope [2] this [10] court [6] will [1] excuse [1] my [9] attendance [1] ."

     "On [12] what [4] grounds [1] , Sir [8] ?" said [14] Mr [29] . Justice [4] Stareleigh [3] .

     "I [16] have [4] no [4] assistant [1] , my [10] Lord [1] ," said [15] the [90] chemist [4] .

     "I [17] can't [1] help [1] that [16] , Sir [9] ," replied [6] Mr [30] . Justice [5] Stareleigh [4] . "You [6] should [1] hire [1] one [5] ."

     "I [18] can't [2] afford [1] it [9] , my [11] Lord [2] ," rejoined [1] the [91] chemist [5] .

     "Then [4] you [7] ought [2] to [28] be [5] able [1] to [29] afford [2] it [10] , Sir [10] ," said [16] the [92] judge [5] , reddening [1] ; for [9] Mr [31] . Justice [6] Stareleigh's [1] temper [1] bordered [1] on [13] the [93] irritable [1] , and [43] brooked [1] not [2] contradiction [1] .

     "I [19] know [2] I [20] ought [3] to [30] do [6] , if [3] I [21] got [3] on [14] as [13] well [3] as [14] I [22] deserved [1] ; but [3] I [23] don't [3] , my [12] Lord [3] ," answered [1] the [94] chemist [6] .

     "Swear [1] the [95] gentleman [5] ," said [17] the [96] judge [6] peremptorily [1] .

      The [97] officer [3] had [10] got [4] no [5] further [1] than [4] the [98] "You [8] shall [3] well [4] and [44] truly [2] try [2] ," when [6] he [9] was [13] again [2] interrupted [2] by [8] the [99] chemist [7] .

     "I [24] am [2] to [31] be [6] sworn [2] , my [13] Lord [4] , am [3] I [25] ?" said [18] the [100] chemist [8] .

     "Certainly [1] , sir [11] ," replied [7] the [101] testy [1] little [9] judge [7] .

     "Very [5] well [5] , my [14] Lord [5] ," replied [8] the [102] chemist [9] , in [23] a [41] resigned [1] manner [6] . "Then [5] there'll [1] be [7] murder [1] before [1] this [11] trial's [1] over [2] ; that's [4] all [5] . Swear [2] me [3] , if [4] you [9] please [1] , Sir [12] ;" and [45] sworn [3] the [103] chemist [10] was [14] , before [2] the [104] judge [8] could [3] find [2] words [1] to [32] utter [1] .

     "I [26] merely [1] wanted [1] to [33] observe [1] , my [15] Lord [6] ," said [19] the [105] chemist [11] , taking [2] his [16] seat [5] with [7] great [7] deliberation [1] , "that [17] I've [1] left [2] nobody [1] but [4] an [2] errand-boy [1] in [24] my [16] shop [1] . He [10] is [9] a [42] very [6] nice [1] boy [1] , my [17] Lord [7] , but [5] he [11] is [10] not [3] acquainted [1] with [8] drugs [1] ; and [46] I [27] know [3] that [18] the [106] prevailing [1] impression [1] on [15] his [17] mind [1] is [11] , that [19] Epsom [1] salts [1] means [1] oxalic [1] acid [1] ; and [47] syrup [1] of [48] senna [1] , laudanum [1] . That's [5] all [6] , my [18] Lord [8] ." With [9] this [12] , the [107] tall [2] chemist [12] composed [1] himself [2] into [5] a [43] comfortable [1] attitude [1] , and [48] , assuming [1] a [44] pleasant [1] expression [1] of [49] countenance [1] , appeared [2] to [34] have [5] prepared [1] himself [3] for [10] the [108] worst [1] .

      Mr [32] . Pickwick [14] was [15] regarding [1] the [109] chemist [13] with [10] feelings [1] of [50] the [110] deepest [1] horror [1] , when [7] a [45] slight [1] sensation [1] was [16] perceptible [1] in [25] the [111] body [4] of [51] the [112] court [7] ; and [49] immediately [2] afterwards [1] Mrs [1] . Bardell [1] , supported [1] by [9] Mrs [2] . Cluppins [1] , was [17] led [2] in [26] , and [50] placed [2] , in [27] a [46] drooping [1] state [2] , at [7] the [113] other [4] end [1] of [52] the [114] seat [6] on [16] which [7] Mr [33] . Pickwick [15] sat [3] . An [3] extra-sized [1] umbrella [1] was [18] then [6] handed [1] in [28] by [10] Mr [34] . Dodson [1] , and [51] a [47] pair [1] of [53] pattens [1] by [11] Mr [35] . Fogg [1] , each [1] of [54] whom [1] had [11] prepared [2] a [48] most [3] sympathising [1] and [52] melancholy [1] face [4] for [11] the [115] occasion [1] . Mrs [3] . Sanders [1] then [7] appeared [3] , leading [2] in [29] Master [1] Bardell [2] . At [8] sight [1] of [55] her [1] child [1] , Mrs [4] . Bardell [3] started [1] ; suddenly [1] recollecting [1] herself [1] , she [1] kissed [1] him [6] in [30] a [49] frantic [1] manner [7] ; then [8] relapsing [1] into [6] a [50] state [3] of [56] hysterical [1] imbecility [1] , the [116] good [3] lady [1] requested [1] to [35] be [8] informed [1] where [2] she [2] was [19] . In [31] reply [1] to [36] this [13] , Mrs [5] . Cluppins [2] and [53] Mrs [6] . Sanders [2] turned [2] their [7] heads [1] away [1] and [54] wept [1] , while [1] Messrs [1] . Dodson [2] and [55] Fogg [2] entreated [1] the [117] plaintiff [3] to [37] compose [1] herself [2] . Serjeant [8] Buzfuz [4] rubbed [1] his [18] eyes [2] very [7] hard [1] with [11] a [51] large [3] white [1] handkerchief [1] , and [56] gave [1] an [4] appealing [1] look [1] towards [2] the [118] jury [5] , while [2] the [119] judge [9] was [20] visibly [1] affected [1] , and [57] several [1] of [57] the [120] beholders [1] tried [1] to [38] cough [1] down [1] their [8] emotion [1] .

     "Very [8] good [4] notion [1] that [20] indeed [1] ," whispered [2] Perker [9] to [39] Mr [36] . Pickwick [16] . "Capital [2] fellows [1] those [1] Dodson [3] and [58] Fogg [3] ; excellent [1] ideas [1] of [58] effect [1] , my [19] dear [9] Sir [13] , excellent [2] ."

      As [15] Perker [10] spoke [1] , Mrs [7] . Bardell [4] began [1] to [40] recover [1] by [12] slow [1] degrees [1] , while [3] Mrs [8] . Cluppins [3] , after [3] a [52] careful [1] survey [1] of [59] Master [2] Bardell's [1] buttons [1] and [59] the [121] button-holes [1] to [41] which [8] they [9] severally [1] belonged [1] , placed [3] him [7] on [17] the [122] floor [3] of [60] the [123] court [8] in [32] front [1] of [61] his [19] mother [1] —a [53] commanding [2] position [1] in [33] which [9] he [12] could [4] not [4] fail [1] to [42] awaken [2] the [124] full [2] commiseration [1] and [60] sympathy [1] of [62] both [2] judge [10] and [61] jury [6] . This [14] was [21] not [5] done [3] without [1] considerable [1] opposition [1] , and [62] many [1] tears [1] , on [18] the [125] part [1] of [63] the [126] young [1] gentleman [6] himself [4] , who [16] had [12] certain [1] inward [1] misgivings [1] that [21] the [127] placing [1] him [8] within [1] the [128] full [3] glare [1] of [64] the [129] judge's [1] eye [1] was [22] only [2] a [54] formal [1] prelude [1] to [43] his [20] being [2] immediately [3] ordered [1] away [2] for [12] instant [1] execution [1] , or [8] for [13] transportation [1] beyond [1] the [130] seas [1] , during [2] the [131] whole [2] term [1] of [65] his [21] natural [1] life [1] , at [9] the [132] very [9] least [1] .

     "Bardell [5] and [63] Pickwick [17] ," cried [2] the [133] gentleman [7] in [34] black [4] , calling [1] on [19] the [134] case [2] , which [10] stood [2] first [1] on [20] the [135] list [1] .

     "I [28] am [4] for [14] the [136] plaintiff [4] , my [20] Lord [9] ," said [20] Mr [37] . Serjeant [9] Buzfuz [5] .

     "Who [17] is [12] with [12] you [10] , Brother [1] Buzfuz [6] ?" said [21] the [137] judge [11] . Mr [38] . Skimpin [2] bowed [1] , to [44] intimate [1] that [22] he [13] was [23] .

     "I [29] appear [1] for [15] the [138] defendant [2] , my [21] Lord [10] ," said [22] Mr [39] . Serjeant [10] Snubbin [4] .

     "Anybody [1] with [13] you [11] , Brother [2] Snubbin [5] ?" inquired [2] the [139] court [9] .

     "Mr [40] . Phunky [2] , my [22] Lord [11] ," replied [9] Serjeant [11] Snubbin [6] .

     "Serjeant [12] Buzfuz [7] and [64] Mr [41] . Skimpin [3] for [16] the [140] plaintiff [5] ," said [23] the [141] judge [12] , writing [1] down [2] the [142] names [3] in [35] his [22] note-book [1] , and [65] reading [1] as [16] he [14] wrote [1] ; "for [17] the [143] defendant [3] , Serjeant [13] Snubbin [7] and [66] Mr [42] . Monkey [1] ."

     "Beg [2] your [2] Lordship's [1] pardon [2] , Phunky [3] ."

     "Oh [1] , very [10] good [5] ," said [24] the [144] judge [13] ; "I [30] never [1] had [13] the [145] pleasure [1] of [66] hearing [1] the [146] gentleman's [1] name [1] before [3] ." Here [4] Mr [43] . Phunky [4] bowed [2] and [67] smiled [1] , and [68] the [147] judge [14] bowed [3] and [69] smiled [2] too [2] , and [70] then [9] Mr [44] . Phunky [5] , blushing [1] into [7] the [148] very [11] whites [1] of [67] his [23] eyes [3] , tried [2] to [45] look [2] as [17] if [5] he [15] didn't [1] know [4] that [23] everybody [2] was [24] gazing [1] at [10] him [9] , a [55] thing [2] which [11] no [6] man [8] ever [1] succeeded [1] in [36] doing [1] yet [1] , or [9] in [37] all [7] reasonable [1] probability [1] , ever [2] will [2] .

     "Go [1] on [21] ," said [25] the [149] judge [15] .

      The [150] ushers [2] again [3] called [2] silence [5] , and [71] Mr [45] . Skimpin [4] proceeded [3] to [46] "open [1] the [151] case [3] "; and [72] the [152] case [4] appeared [4] to [47] have [6] very [12] little [10] inside [1] it [11] when [8] he [16] had [14] opened [1] it [12] , for [18] he [17] kept [1] such [3] particulars [1] as [18] he [18] knew [1] , completely [1] to [48] himself [5] , and [73] sat [4] down [3] , after [4] a [56] lapse [1] of [68] three [5] minutes [3] , leaving [1] the [153] jury [7] in [38] precisely [1] the [154] same [1] advanced [1] stage [1] of [69] wisdom [1] as [19] they [10] were [8] in [39] before [4] .

      Serjeant [14] Buzfuz [8] then [10] rose [1] with [14] all [8] the [155] majesty [1] and [74] dignity [1] which [12] the [156] grave [1] nature [1] of [70] the [157] proceedings [1] demanded [1] , and [75] having [3] whispered [3] to [49] Dodson [4] , and [76] conferred [1] briefly [1] with [15] Fogg [4] , pulled [1] his [24] gown [1] over [3] his [25] shoulders [1] , settled [1] his [26] wig [2] , and [77] addressed [1] the [158] jury [8] .

      Serjeant [15] Buzfuz [9] began [2] by [13] saying [1] , that [24] never [2] , in [40] the [159] whole [3] course [3] of [71] his [27] professional [1] experience [1] —never [3] , from [5] the [160] very [13] first [2] moment [1] of [72] his [28] applying [1] himself [6] to [50] the [161] study [1] and [78] practice [1] of [73] the [162] law [2] —had [15] he [19] approached [1] a [57] case [5] with [16] feelings [2] of [74] such [4] deep [1] emotion [2] , or [10] with [17] such [5] a [58] heavy [1] sense [1] of [75] the [163] responsibility [1] imposed [1] upon [6] him [10] —a [59] responsibility [2] , he [20] would [1] say [4] , which [13] he [21] could [5] never [4] have [7] supported [2] , were [9] he [22] not [6] buoyed [1] up [4] and [79] sustained [1] by [14] a [60] conviction [1] so [7] strong [1] , that [25] it [13] amounted [1] to [51] positive [1] certainty [1] that [26] the [164] cause [1] of [76] truth [1] and [80] justice [7] , or [11] , in [41] other [5] words [2] , the [165] cause [2] of [77] his [29] much-injured [1] and [81] most [4] oppressed [1] client [1] , must [2] prevail [1] with [18] the [166] high-minded [1] and [82] intelligent [1] dozen [1] of [78] men [3] whom [2] he [23] now [1] saw [1] in [42] that [27] box [2] before [5] him [11] .

      Counsel [7] usually [1] begin [1] in [43] this [15] way [4] , because [1] it [14] puts [2] the [167] jury [9] on [22] the [168] very [14] best [1] terms [1] with [19] themselves [2] , and [83] makes [1] them [2] think [5] what [5] sharp [1] fellows [2] they [11] must [3] be [9] . A [61] visible [1] effect [2] was [25] produced [1] immediately [4] , several [2] jurymen [5] beginning [1] to [52] take [2] voluminous [1] notes [1] with [20] the [169] utmost [1] eagerness [1] .

     "You [12] have [8] heard [1] from [6] my [23] learned [1] friend [1] , gentlemen [11] ," continued [1] Serjeant [16] Buzfuz [10] , well [6] knowing [1] that [28] , from [7] the [170] learned [2] friend [2] alluded [1] to [53] , the [171] gentlemen [12] of [79] the [172] jury [10] had [16] heard [2] just [4] nothing [1] at [11] all [9] —"you [13] have [9] heard [3] from [8] my [24] learned [3] friend [3] , gentlemen [13] , that [29] this [16] is [13] an [5] action [1] for [19] a [62] breach [3] of [80] promise [3] of [81] marriage [1] , in [44] which [14] the [173] damages [1] are [4] laid [1] at [12] #1,500. But [6] you [14] have [10] not [7] heard [4] from [9] my [25] learned [4] friend [4] , inasmuch [2] as [20] it [15] did [1] not [8] come [1] within [2] my [26] learned [5] friend's [1] province [1] to [54] tell [2] you [15] , what [6] are [5] the [174] facts [1] and [84] circumstances [1] of [82] the [175] case [6] . Those [2] facts [2] and [85] circumstances [2] , gentlemen [14] , you [16] shall [4] hear [1] detailed [1] by [15] me [4] , and [86] proved [1] by [16] the [176] unimpeachable [1] female [1] whom [3] I [31] will [3] place [2] in [45] that [30] box [3] before [6] you [17] ."

      Here [5] , Mr [46] . Serjeant [17] Buzfuz [11] , with [21] a [63] tremendous [1] emphasis [1] on [23] the [177] word [1] "box [4] ," smote [1] his [30] table [3] with [22] a [64] mighty [1] sound [1] , and [87] glanced [1] at [13] Dodson [5] and [88] Fogg [5] , who [18] nodded [3] admiration [2] of [83] the [178] Serjeant [18] , and [89] indignant [2] defiance [1] of [84] the [179] defendant [4] .

     "The [180] plaintiff [6] , gentlemen [15] ," continued [2] Serjeant [19] Buzfuz [12] , in [46] a [65] soft [1] and [90] melancholy [2] voice [2] , "the [181] plaintiff [7] is [14] a [66] widow [1] ; yes [1] , gentlemen [16] , a [67] widow [2] . The [182] late [2] Mr [47] . Bardell [6] , after [5] enjoying [1] , for [20] many [2] years [1] , the [183] esteem [1] and [91] confidence [1] of [85] his [31] sovereign [1] , as [21] one [6] of [86] the [184] guardians [1] of [87] his [32] royal [1] revenues [1] , glided [1] almost [1] imperceptibly [1] from [10] the [185] world [1] , to [55] seek [1] elsewhere [1] for [21] that [31] repose [1] and [92] peace [1] which [15] a [68] custom-house [1] can [2] never [5] afford [3] ."

      At [14] this [17] pathetic [1] description [1] of [88] the [186] decease [1] of [89] Mr [48] . Bardell [7] , who [19] had [17] been [2] knocked [1] on [24] the [187] head [1] with [23] a [69] quart-pot [1] in [47] a [70] public-house [1] cellar [1] , the [188] learned [6] serjeant's [1] voice [3] faltered [1] , and [93] he [24] proceeded [4] , with [24] emotion [3]

     "Some [1] time [3] before [7] his [33] death [1] , he [25] had [18] stamped [1] his [34] likeness [1] upon [7] a [71] little [11] boy [2] . With [25] this [18] little [12] boy [3] , the [189] only [3] pledge [1] of [90] her [2] departed [1] exciseman [1] , Mrs [9] . Bardell [8] shrank [1] from [11] the [190] world [2] , and [94] courted [1] the [191] retirement [1] and [95] tranquillity [1] of [91] Goswell [1] Street [1] ; and [96] here [6] she [3] placed [4] in [48] her [3] front [2] parlour [1] window [1] a [72] written [1] placard [1] , bearing [1] this [19] inscription [1] —"Apartments [1] furnished [1] for [22] a [73] single [1] gentleman [8] . Inquire [1] within [3] ." Here [7] Serjeant [20] Buzfuz [13] paused [1] , while [4] several [3] gentlemen [17] of [92] the [192] jury [11] took [3] a [74] note [1] of [93] the [193] document [1] .

     "There [4] is [15] no [7] date [1] to [56] that [32] , is [16] there [5] ?" inquired [3] a [75] juror [1] . "There [6] is [17] no [8] date [2] , gentlemen [18] ," replied [10] Serjeant [21] Buzfuz [14] ; "but [7] I [32] am [5] instructed [1] to [57] say [5] that [33] it [16] was [26] put [3] in [49] the [194] plaintiff's [2] parlour [2] window [2] just [5] this [20] time [4] three [6] years [2] . I [33] entreat [1] the [195] attention [2] of [94] the [196] jury [12] to [58] the [197] wording [1] of [95] this [21] document [2] —"Apartments [2] furnished [2] for [23] a [76] single [2] gentleman [9] "! Mrs [10] . Bardell's [2] opinions [1] of [96] the [198] opposite [2] sex [1] , gentlemen [19] , were [10] derived [1] from [12] a [77] long [1] contemplation [1] of [97] the [199] inestimable [1] qualities [1] of [98] her [4] lost [1] husband [1] . She [4] had [19] no [9] fear [1] , she [5] had [20] no [10] distrust [1] , she [6] had [21] no [11] suspicion [1] ; all [10] was [27] confidence [2] and [97] reliance [1] . "Mr [49] . Bardell [9] ," said [26] the [200] widow [3] —"Mr [50] . Bardell [10] was [28] a [78] man [9] of [99] honour [1] , Mr [51] . Bardell [11] was [29] a [79] man [10] of [100] his [35] word [2] , Mr [52] . Bardell [12] was [30] no [12] deceiver [1] , Mr [53] . Bardell [13] was [31] once [1] a [80] single [3] gentleman [10] himself [7] ; to [59] single [4] gentlemen [20] I [34] look [3] for [24] protection [1] , for [25] assistance [1] , for [26] comfort [1] , and [98] for [27] consolation [1] ; in [50] single [5] gentlemen [21] I [35] shall [5] perpetually [1] see [2] something [1] to [60] remind [1] me [5] of [101] what [7] Mr [54] . Bardell [14] was [32] when [9] he [26] first [3] won [1] my [27] young [2] and [99] untried [1] affections [1] ; to [61] a [81] single [6] gentleman [11] , then [11] , shall [6] my [28] lodgings [1] be [10] let [2] ." Actuated [1] by [17] this [22] beautiful [1] and [100] touching [1] impulse [1] (among [2] the [201] best [2] impulses [1] of [102] our [2] imperfect [1] nature [2] , gentlemen [22] ), the [202] lonely [1] and [101] desolate [1] widow [4] dried [1] her [5] tears [2] , furnished [3] her [6] first [4] floor [4] , caught [2] her [7] innocent [1] boy [4] to [62] her [8] maternal [1] bosom [1] , and [102] put [4] the [203] bill [1] up [5] in [51] her [9] parlour [3] window [3] . Did [2] it [17] remain [1] there [7] long [2] ? No [13] . The [204] serpent [1] was [33] on [25] the [205] watch [4] , the [206] train [1] was [34] laid [2] , the [207] mine [1] was [35] preparing [1] , the [208] sapper [1] and [103] miner [1] was [36] at [15] work [1] . Before [8] the [209] bill [2] had [22] been [3] in [52] the [210] parlour [4] window [4] three [7] days [1] —three [8] days [2] , gentlemen [23] —a [82] being [3] , erect [1] upon [8] two [7] legs [3] , and [104] bearing [2] all [11] the [211] outward [1] semblance [1] of [103] a [83] man [11] , and [105] not [9] of [104] a [84] monster [1] , knocked [2] at [16] the [212] door [1] of [105] Mrs [11] . Bardell's [3] house [1] . He [27] inquired [4] within [4] —he [28] took [4] the [213] lodgings [2] ; and [106] on [26] the [214] very [15] next [1] day [3] he [29] entered [3] into [8] possession [1] of [106] them [3] . This [23] man [12] was [37] Pickwick [18] — Pickwick [19] , the [215] defendant [5] ."

      Serjeant [22] Buzfuz [15] , who [20] had [23] proceeded [5] with [26] such [6] volubility [1] that [34] his [36] face [5] was [38] perfectly [1] crimson [2] , here [8] paused [2] for [28] breath [1] . The [216] silence [6] awoke [1] Mr [55] . Justice [8] Stareleigh [5] , who [21] immediately [5] wrote [2] down [4] something [2] with [27] a [85] pen [1] without [2] any [2] ink [1] in [53] it [18] , and [107] looked [2] unusually [1] profound [1] , to [63] impress [2] the [217] jury [13] with [28] the [218] belief [1] that [35] he [30] always [2] thought [1] most [5] deeply [1] with [29] his [37] eyes [4] shut [1] . Serjeant [23] Buzfuz [16] proceeded [6]

     "Of [107] this [24] man [13] Pickwick [20] I [36] will [4] say [6] little [13] ; the [219] subject [1] presents [1] but [8] few [1] attractions [1] ; and [108] I [37] , gentlemen [24] , am [6] not [10] the [220] man [14] , nor [2] are [6] you [18] , gentlemen [25] , the [221] men [4] , to [64] delight [1] in [54] the [222] contemplation [2] of [108] revolting [1] heartlessness [1] , and [109] of [109] systematic [1] villainy [2] ."

      Here [9] Mr [56] . Pickwick [21] , who [22] had [24] been [4] writhing [1] in [55] silence [7] for [29] some [2] time [5] , gave [2] a [86] violent [1] start [1] , as [22] if [6] some [3] vague [1] idea [1] of [110] assaulting [1] Serjeant [24] Buzfuz [17] , in [56] the [223] august [1] presence [1] of [111] justice [9] and [110] law [3] , suggested [1] itself [1] to [65] his [38] mind [2] . An [6] admonitory [1] gesture [1] from [13] Perker [11] restrained [1] him [12] , and [111] he [31] listened [1] to [66] the [224] learned [7] gentleman's [2] continuation [1] with [30] a [87] look [4] of [112] indignation [1] , which [16] contrasted [1] forcibly [1] with [31] the [225] admiring [1] faces [2] of [113] Mrs [12] . Cluppins [4] and [112] Mrs [13] . Sanders [3] .

     "I [38] say [7] systematic [2] villainy [3] , gentlemen [26] ," said [27] Serjeant [25] Buzfuz [18] , looking [4] through [1] Mr [57] . Pickwick [22] , and [113] talking [1] AT [17] him [13] ; "and [114] when [10] I [39] say [8] systematic [3] villainy [4] , let [3] me [6] tell [3] the [226] defendant [6] Pickwick [23] , if [7] he [32] be [11] in [57] court [10] , as [23] I [40] am [7] informed [2] he [33] is [18] , that [36] it [19] would [2] have [11] been [5] more [5] decent [1] in [58] him [14] , more [6] becoming [1] , in [59] better [3] judgment [1] , and [115] in [60] better [4] taste [1] , if [8] he [34] had [25] stopped [1] away [3] . Let [4] me [7] tell [4] him [15] , gentlemen [27] , that [37] any [3] gestures [1] of [114] dissent [1] or [12] disapprobation [1] in [61] which [17] he [35] may [3] indulge [1] in [62] this [25] court [11] will [5] not [11] go [2] down [5] with [32] you [19] ; that [38] you [20] will [6] know [5] how [2] to [67] value [1] and [116] how [3] to [68] appreciate [1] them [4] ; and [117] let [5] me [8] tell [5] him [16] further [2] , as [24] my [29] Lord [12] will [7] tell [6] you [21] , gentlemen [28] , that [39] a [88] counsel [8] , in [63] the [227] discharge [1] of [115] his [39] duty [1] to [69] his [40] client [2] , is [19] neither [2] to [70] be [12] intimidated [1] nor [3] bullied [1] , nor [4] put [5] down [6] ; and [118] that [40] any [4] attempt [1] to [71] do [7] either [2] the [228] one [7] or [13] the [229] other [6] , or [14] the [230] first [5] , or [15] the [231] last [1] , will [8] recoil [1] on [27] the [232] head [2] of [116] the [233] attempter [1] , be [13] he [36] plaintiff [8] or [16] be [14] he [37] defendant [7] , be [15] his [41] name [2] Pickwick [24] , or [17] Noakes [1] , or [18] Stoakes [1] , or [19] Stiles [1] , or [20] Brown [1] , or [21] Thompson [1] ."

      This [26] little [14] divergence [1] from [14] the [234] subject [2] in [64] hand [2] , had [26] , of [117] course [4] , the [235] intended [1] effect [3] of [118] turning [1] all [12] eyes [5] to [72] Mr [58] . Pickwick [25] . Serjeant [26] Buzfuz [19] , having [4] partially [1] recovered [1] from [15] the [236] state [4] of [119] moral [1] elevation [1] into [9] which [18] he [38] had [27] lashed [1] himself [8] , resumed [1]

     "I [41] shall [7] show [2] you [22] , gentlemen [29] , that [41] for [30] two [8] years [3] , Pickwick [26] continued [3] to [73] reside [1] constantly [1] , and [119] without [3] interruption [1] or [22] intermission [1] , at [18] Mrs [14] . Bardell's [4] house [2] . I [42] shall [8] show [3] you [23] that [42] Mrs [15] . Bardell [15] , during [3] the [237] whole [4] of [120] that [43] time [6] , waited [1] on [28] him [17] , attended [1] to [74] his [42] comforts [1] , cooked [1] his [43] meals [1] , looked [3] out [4] his [44] linen [1] for [31] the [238] washerwoman [1] when [11] it [20] went [1] abroad [1] , darned [1] , aired [1] , and [120] prepared [3] it [21] for [32] wear [1] , when [12] it [22] came [1] home [1] , and [121] , in [65] short [2] , enjoyed [1] his [45] fullest [1] trust [1] and [122] confidence [3] . I [43] shall [9] show [4] you [24] that [44] , on [29] many [3] occasions [1] , he [39] gave [3] halfpence [1] , and [123] on [30] some [4] occasions [2] even [1] sixpences [1] , to [75] her [10] little [15] boy [5] ; and [124] I [44] shall [10] prove [1] to [76] you [25] , by [18] a [89] witness [1] whose [2] testimony [1] it [23] will [9] be [16] impossible [1] for [33] my [30] learned [8] friend [5] to [77] weaken [1] or [23] controvert [1] , that [45] on [31] one [8] occasion [2] he [40] patted [1] the [239] boy [6] on [32] the [240] head [3] , and [125] , after [6] inquiring [2] whether [1] he [41] had [28] won [2] any [5] " alley [1] tors [1] or [24] commoneys [1] lately [1] (both [3] of [121] which [19] I [45] understand [1] to [78] be [17] a [90] particular [1] species [1] of [122] marbles [1] much [2] prized [1] by [19] the [241] youth [1] of [123] this [27] town [1] ), made [1] use [1] of [124] this [28] remarkable [1] expression [2] , "How [4] should [2] you [26] like [1] to [79] have [12] another [2] father [1] ?" I [46] shall [11] prove [2] to [80] you [27] , gentlemen [30] , that [46] about [2] a [91] year [1] ago [1] , Pickwick [27] suddenly [2] began [3] to [81] absent [1] himself [9] from [16] home [2] , during [4] long [3] intervals [1] , as [25] if [9] with [33] the [242] intention [1] of [125] gradually [1] breaking [1] off [2] from [17] my [31] client [3] ; but [9] I [47] shall [12] show [5] you [28] also [1] , that [47] his [46] resolution [1] was [39] not [12] at [19] that [48] time [7] sufficiently [1] strong [2] , or [25] that [49] his [47] better [5] feelings [3] conquered [1] , if [10] better [6] feelings [4] he [42] has [3] , or [26] that [50] the [243] charms [1] and [126] accomplishments [1] of [126] my [32] client [4] prevailed [1] against [1] his [48] unmanly [1] intentions [1] , by [20] proving [1] to [82] you [29] , that [51] on [33] one [9] occasion [3] , when [13] he [43] returned [2] from [18] the [244] country [1] , he [44] distinctly [1] and [127] in [66] terms [2] , offered [1] her [11] marriage [2] : previously [1] , however [1] , taking [3] special [3] care [1] that [52] there [8] would [3] be [18] no [14] witness [2] to [83] their [9] solemn [1] contract [1] ; and [128] I [48] am [8] in [67] a [92] situation [1] to [84] prove [3] to [85] you [30] , on [34] the [245] testimony [2] of [127] three [9] of [128] his [49] own [1] friends [2] —most [6] unwilling [1] witnesses [1] , gentlemen [31] —most [7] unwilling [2] witnesses [2] —that [53] on [35] that [54] morning [5] he [45] was [40] discovered [2] by [21] them [5] holding [1] the [246] plaintiff [9] in [68] his [50] arms [2] , and [129] soothing [1] her [12] agitation [2] by [22] his [51] caresses [1] and [130] endearments [1] ."

      A [93] visible [2] impression [2] was [41] produced [2] upon [9] the [247] auditors [1] by [23] this [29] part [2] of [129] the [248] learned [9] Serjeant's [2] address [1] . Drawing [1] forth [1] two [9] very [16] small [1] scraps [1] of [130] paper [1] , he [46] proceeded [7] — "And [131] now [2] , gentlemen [32] , but [10] one [10] word [3] more [7] . Two [10] letters [1] have [13] passed [1] between [1] these [1] parties [1] , letters [2] which [20] are [7] admitted [1] to [86] be [19] in [69] the [249] handwriting [1] of [131] the [250] defendant [8] , and [132] which [21] speak [1] volumes [1] , indeed [2] . The [251] letters [3] , too [3] , bespeak [1] the [252] character [1] of [132] the [253] man [15] . They [12] are [8] not [13] open [2] , fervent [1] , eloquent [1] epistles [1] , breathing [1] nothing [2] but [11] the [254] language [1] of [133] affectionate [1] attachment [1] . They [13] are [9] covert [1] , sly [1] , underhanded [1] communications [1] , but [12] , fortunately [1] , far [2] more [8] conclusive [1] than [5] if [11] couched [1] in [70] the [255] most [8] glowing [1] language [2] and [133] the [256] most [9] poetic [1] imagery [1] —letters [4] that [55] must [4] be [20] viewed [1] with [34] a [94] cautious [1] and [134] suspicious [1] eye [2] —letters [5] that [56] were [11] evidently [1] intended [2] at [20] the [257] time [8] , by [24] Pickwick [28] , to [87] mislead [1] and [135] delude [1] any [6] third [1] parties [2] into [10] whose [3] hands [3] they [14] might [1] fall [1] . Let [6] me [9] read [1] the [258] first [6] : "Garraways [1] , twelve [1] o [1] "clock [1] . Dear [10] Mrs [16] . B [1] .—Chops [1] and [136] tomato [1] sauce [1] . Yours [1] , PICKWICK [29] ." Gentlemen [33] , what [8] does [1] this [30] mean [1] ? Chops [2] and [137] tomato [2] sauce [2] . Yours [2] , Pickwick [30] ! Chops [3] ! Gracious [1] heavens [1] ! and [138] tomato [3] sauce [3] ! Gentlemen [34] , is [20] the [259] happiness [1] of [134] a [95] sensitive [1] and [139] confiding [1] female [2] to [88] be [21] trifled [1] away [4] , by [25] such [7] shallow [1] artifices [1] as [26] these [2] ? The [260] next [2] has [4] no [15] date [3] whatever [1] , which [22] is [21] in [71] itself [2] suspicious [2] . "Dear [11] Mrs [17] . B [2] ., I [49] shall [13] not [14] be [22] at [21] home [3] till [1] to-morrow [1] . Slow [2] coach [3] ." And [140] then [12] follows [1] this [31] very [17] remarkable [2] expression [3] . "Don't [4] trouble [1] yourself [1] about [3] the [261] warming-pan [1] ." The [262] warming-pan [2] ! Why [3] , gentlemen [35] , who [23] DOES [2] trouble [2] himself [10] about [4] a [96] warming-pan [3] ? When [14] was [42] the [263] peace [2] of [135] mind [3] of [136] man [16] or [27] woman [1] broken [1] or [28] disturbed [1] by [26] a [97] warming-pan [4] , which [23] is [22] in [72] itself [3] a [98] harmless [1] , a [99] useful [1] , and [141] I [50] will [10] add [1] , gentlemen [36] , a [100] comforting [1] article [1] of [137] domestic [1] furniture [1] ? Why [4] is [23] Mrs [18] . Bardell [16] so [8] earnestly [1] entreated [2] not [15] to [89] agitate [1] herself [3] about [5] this [32] warming-pan [5] , unless [1] (as [27] is [24] no [16] doubt [1] the [264] case [7] ) it [24] is [25] a [101] mere [1] cover [2] for [34] hidden [1] fire [1] —a [102] mere [2] substitute [1] for [35] some [5] endearing [1] word [4] or [29] promise [4] , agreeably [1] to [90] a [103] preconcerted [1] system [1] of [138] correspondence [1] , artfully [1] contrived [1] by [27] Pickwick [31] with [35] a [104] view [1] to [91] his [52] contemplated [1] desertion [1] , and [142] which [24] I [51] am [9] not [16] in [73] a [105] condition [1] to [92] explain [1] ? And [143] what [9] does [3] this [33] allusion [1] to [93] the [265] slow [3] coach [4] mean [2] ? For [36] aught [1] I [52] know [6] , it [25] may [4] be [23] a [106] reference [1] to [94] Pickwick [32] himself [11] , who [24] has [5] most [10] unquestionably [1] been [6] a [107] criminally [1] slow [4] coach [5] during [5] the [266] whole [5] of [139] this [34] transaction [1] , but [13] whose [4] speed [1] will [11] now [3] be [24] very [18] unexpectedly [1] accelerated [1] , and [144] whose [5] wheels [1] , gentlemen [37] , as [28] he [47] will [12] find [3] to [95] his [53] cost [1] , will [13] very [19] soon [1] be [25] greased [1] by [28] you [31] !"

      Mr [59] . Serjeant [27] Buzfuz [20] paused [3] in [74] this [35] place [3] , to [96] see [3] whether [2] the [267] jury [14] smiled [3] at [22] his [54] joke [1] ; but [14] as [29] nobody [2] took [5] it [26] but [15] the [268] greengrocer [3] , whose [6] sensitiveness [1] on [36] the [269] subject [3] was [43] very [20] probably [1] occasioned [2] by [29] his [55] having [5] subjected [1] a [108] chaise-cart [1] to [97] the [270] process [1] in [75] question [1] on [37] that [57] identical [2] morning [6] , the [271] learned [10] Serjeant [28] considered [1] it [27] advisable [1] to [98] undergo [1] a [109] slight [2] relapse [1] into [11] the [272] dismals [1] before [9] he [48] concluded [1] .

     "But [16] enough [1] of [140] this [36] , gentlemen [38] ," said [28] Mr [60] . Serjeant [29] Buzfuz [21] , "it [28] is [26] difficult [1] to [99] smile [1] with [36] an [7] aching [1] heart [2] ; it [29] is [27] ill [1] jesting [1] when [15] our [3] deepest [2] sympathies [1] are [10] awakened [1] . My [33] client's [1] hopes [1] and [145] prospects [1] are [11] ruined [1] , and [146] it [30] is [28] no [17] figure [1] of [141] speech [1] to [100] say [9] that [58] her [13] occupation [1] is [29] gone [1] indeed [3] . The [273] bill [3] is [30] down [7] —but [17] there [9] is [31] no [18] tenant [1] . Eligible [1] single [7] gentlemen [39] pass [1] and [147] repass-but [1] there [10] is [32] no [19] invitation [1] for [37] to [101] inquire [2] within [5] or [30] without [4] . All [13] is [33] gloom [1] and [148] silence [8] in [76] the [274] house [3] ; even [2] the [275] voice [4] of [142] the [276] child [2] is [34] hushed [1] ; his [56] infant [1] sports [1] are [12] disregarded [1] when [16] his [57] mother [2] weeps [1] ; his [58] "alley [2] tors [2] " and [149] his [59] "commoneys [2] " are [13] alike [1] neglected [1] ; he [49] forgets [1] the [277] long [4] familiar [1] cry [2] of [143] "knuckle [1] down [8] ," and [150] at [23] tip-cheese [1] , or [31] odd [1] and [151] even [3] , his [60] hand [3] is [35] out [5] . But [18] Pickwick [33] , gentlemen [40] , Pickwick [34] , the [278] ruthless [1] destroyer [1] of [144] this [37] domestic [2] oasis [1] in [77] the [279] desert [1] of [145] Goswell [2] Street [2] — Pickwick [35] who [25] has [6] choked [1] up [6] the [280] well [7] , and [152] thrown [1] ashes [1] on [38] the [281] sward [1] —Pickwick [36] , who [26] comes [1] before [10] you [32] to-day [1] with [37] his [61] heartless [1] tomato [4] sauce [4] and [153] warming-pans [1] —Pickwick [37] still [1] rears [1] his [62] head [4] with [38] unblushing [1] effrontery [1] , and [154] gazes [1] without [5] a [110] sigh [1] on [39] the [282] ruin [1] he [50] has [7] made [2] . Damages [2] , gentlemen [41] —heavy [2] damages [3] is [36] the [283] only [4] punishment [1] with [39] which [25] you [33] can [3] visit [1] him [18] ; the [284] only [5] recompense [1] you [34] can [4] award [1] to [102] my [34] client [5] . And [155] for [38] those [3] damages [4] she [7] now [4] appeals [1] to [103] an [8] enlightened [1] , a [111] high-minded [2] , a [112] right-feeling [1] , a [113] conscientious [1] , a [114] dispassionate [1] , a [115] sympathising [2] , a [116] contemplative [1] jury [15] of [146] her [14] civilised [1] countrymen [1] ." With [40] this [38] beautiful [2] peroration [1] , Mr [61] . Serjeant [30] Buzfuz [22] sat [5] down [9] , and [156] Mr [62] . Justice [10] Stareleigh [6] woke [1] up [7] .

     "Call [2] Elizabeth [1] Cluppins [5] ," said [29] Serjeant [31] Buzfuz [23] , rising [2] a [117] minute [1] afterwards [2] , with [41] renewed [1] vigour [1] .

      The [285] nearest [1] usher [1] called [3] for [39] Elizabeth [2] Tuppins [1] ; another [3] one [11] , at [24] a [118] little [16] distance [1] off [3] , demanded [2] Elizabeth [3] Jupkins [1] ; and [157] a [119] third [2] rushed [1] in [78] a [120] breathless [1] state [5] into [12] King [1] Street [3] , and [158] screamed [1] for [40] Elizabeth [4] Muffins [1] till [2] he [51] was [44] hoarse [1] .

      Meanwhile [1] Mrs [19] . Cluppins [6] , with [42] the [286] combined [1] assistance [2] of [147] Mrs [20] . Bardell [17] , Mrs [21] . Sanders [4] , Mr [63] . Dodson [6] , and [159] Mr [64] . Fogg [6] , was [45] hoisted [1] into [13] the [287] witness-box [3] ; and [160] when [17] she [8] was [46] safely [1] perched [1] on [40] the [288] top [1] step [1] , Mrs [22] . Bardell [18] stood [3] on [41] the [289] bottom [1] one [12] , with [43] the [290] pocket-handkerchief [1] and [161] pattens [2] in [79] one [13] hand [4] , and [162] a [121] glass [1] bottle [1] that [59] might [2] hold [2] about [6] a [122] quarter [1] of [148] a [123] pint [1] of [149] smelling-salts [1] in [80] the [291] other [7] , ready [1] for [41] any [7] emergency [1] . Mrs [23] . Sanders [5] , whose [7] eyes [6] were [12] intently [1] fixed [1] on [42] the [292] judge's [2] face [6] , planted [1] herself [4] close [1] by [30] , with [44] the [293] large [4] umbrella [2] , keeping [2] her [15] right [2] thumb [1] pressed [1] on [43] the [294] spring [1] with [45] an [9] earnest [1] countenance [2] , as [30] if [12] she [9] were [13] fully [1] prepared [4] to [104] put [6] it [31] up [8] at [25] a [124] moment's [1] notice [1] .

     "Mrs [24] . Cluppins [7] ," said [30] Serjeant [32] Buzfuz [24] , "pray [1] compose [2] yourself [2] , ma [1] "am [10] ." Of [150] course [5] , directly [2] Mrs [25] . Cluppins [8] was [47] desired [1] to [105] compose [3] herself [5] , she [10] sobbed [1] with [46] increased [1] vehemence [1] , and [163] gave [4] divers [1] alarming [1] manifestations [1] of [151] an [10] approaching [1] fainting [1] fit [1] , or [32] , as [31] she [11] afterwards [3] said [31] , of [152] her [16] feelings [5] being [4] too [4] many [4] for [42] her [17] .

     "Do [8] you [35] recollect [1] , Mrs [26] . Cluppins [9] ," said [32] Serjeant [33] Buzfuz [25] , after [7] a [125] few [2] unimportant [1] questions [1] —"do [9] you [36] recollect [2] being [5] in [81] Mrs [27] . Bardell's [5] back [1] one [14] pair [2] of [153] stairs [1] , on [44] one [15] particular [2] morning [7] in [82] July [1] last [2] , when [18] she [12] was [48] dusting [1] Pickwick's [3] apartment [1] ?"

     "Yes [2] , my [35] Lord [13] and [164] jury [16] , I [53] do [10] ," replied [11] Mrs [28] . Cluppins [10] .

     "Mr [65] . Pickwick's [4] sitting-room [1] was [49] the [295] first-floor [1] front [3] , I [54] believe [1] ?"

     "Yes [3] , it [32] were [14] , Sir [14] ," replied [12] Mrs [29] . Cluppins [11] .

     "What [10] were [15] you [37] doing [2] in [83] the [296] back [2] room [1] , ma [2] "am [11] ?" inquired [5] the [297] little [17] judge [16] .

     "My [36] Lord [14] and [165] jury [17] ," said [33] Mrs [30] . Cluppins [12] , with [47] interesting [1] agitation [3] , "I [55] will [14] not [17] deceive [1] you [38] ."

     "You [39] had [29] better [7] not [18] , ma [3] "am [12] ," said [34] the [298] little [18] judge [17] .

     "I [56] was [50] there [11] ," resumed [2] Mrs [31] . Cluppins [13] , "unbeknown [1] to [106] Mrs [32] . Bardell [19] ; I [57] had [30] been [7] out [6] with [48] a [126] little [19] basket [1] , gentlemen [42] , to [107] buy [1] three [10] pound [1] of [154] red [3] kidney [1] pertaties [1] , which [26] was [51] three [11] pound [2] tuppence [1] ha [1] "penny [1] , when [19] I [58] see [4] Mrs [33] . Bardell's [6] street [4] door [2] on [45] the [299] jar [1] ."

     "On [46] the [300] what [11] ?" exclaimed [1] the [301] little [20] judge [18] .

     "Partly [1] open [3] , my [37] Lord [15] ," said [35] Serjeant [34] Snubbin [8] .

     "She [13] said [36] on [47] the [302] jar [2] ," said [37] the [303] little [21] judge [19] , with [49] a [127] cunning [1] look [5] .

     "It's [2] all [14] the [304] same [2] , my [38] Lord [16] ," said [38] Serjeant [35] Snubbin [9] . The [305] little [22] judge [20] looked [4] doubtful [1] , and [166] said [39] he'd [1] make [1] a [128] note [2] of [155] it [33] . Mrs [34] . Cluppins [14] then [13] resumed [3]

     "I [59] walked [1] in [84] , gentlemen [43] , just [6] to [108] say [10] good-mornin' [1] , and [167] went [2] , in [85] a [129] permiscuous [1] manner [8] , upstairs [1] , and [168] into [14] the [306] back [3] room [2] . Gentlemen [44] , there [12] was [52] the [307] sound [2] of [156] voices [1] in [86] the [308] front [4] room [3] , and [169] —"

     "And [170] you [40] listened [2] , I [60] believe [2] , Mrs [35] . Cluppins [15] ?" said [40] Serjeant [36] Buzfuz [26] .

     "Beggin [1] " your [3] pardon [3] , Sir [15] ," replied [13] Mrs [36] . Cluppins [16] , in [87] a [130] majestic [1] manner [9] , "I [61] would [4] scorn [1] the [309] haction [1] . The [310] voices [2] was [53] very [21] loud [2] , Sir [16] , and [171] forced [1] themselves [3] upon [10] my [39] ear [2] ,"

     "Well [8] , Mrs [37] . Cluppins [17] , you [41] were [16] not [19] listening [1] , but [19] you [42] heard [5] the [311] voices [3] . Was [54] one [16] of [157] those [4] voices [4] Pickwick's [5] ?"

     "Yes [4] , it [34] were [17] , Sir [17] ."

      And [172] Mrs [38] . Cluppins [18] , after [8] distinctly [2] stating [1] that [60] Mr [66] . Pickwick [38] addressed [2] himself [12] to [109] Mrs [39] . Bardell [20] , repeated [1] by [31] slow [5] degrees [2] , and [173] by [32] dint [1] of [158] many [5] questions [2] , the [312] conversation [2] with [50] which [27] our [4] readers [1] are [14] already [2] acquainted [2] .

      The [313] jury [18] looked [5] suspicious [3] , and [174] Mr [67] . Serjeant [37] Buzfuz [27] smiled [4] as [32] he [52] sat [6] down [10] . They [15] looked [6] positively [1] awful [1] when [20] Serjeant [38] Snubbin [10] intimated [1] that [61] he [53] should [3] not [20] cross-examine [1] the [314] witness [3] , for [43] Mr [68] . Pickwick [39] wished [1] it [35] to [110] be [26] distinctly [3] stated [1] that [62] it [36] was [55] due [1] to [111] her [18] to [112] say [11] , that [63] her [19] account [1] was [56] in [88] substance [1] correct [1] .

      Mrs [40] . Cluppins [19] having [6] once [2] broken [2] the [315] ice [1] , thought [2] it [37] a [131] favourable [1] opportunity [1] for [44] entering [1] into [15] a [132] short [3] dissertation [1] on [48] her [20] own [2] domestic [3] affairs [1] ; so [9] she [14] straightway [1] proceeded [8] to [113] inform [1] the [316] court [12] that [64] she [15] was [57] the [317] mother [3] of [159] eight [1] children [1] at [26] that [65] present [2] speaking [1] , and [175] that [66] she [16] entertained [1] confident [1] expectations [1] of [160] presenting [1] Mr [69] . Cluppins [20] with [51] a [133] ninth [1] , somewhere [2] about [7] that [67] day [4] six [1] months [1] . At [27] this [39] interesting [2] point [2] , the [318] little [23] judge [21] interposed [1] most [11] irascibly [1] ; and [176] the [319] effect [4] of [161] the [320] interposition [1] was [58] , that [68] both [4] the [321] worthy [1] lady [2] and [177] Mrs [41] . Sanders [6] were [18] politely [1] taken [2] out [7] of [162] court [13] , under [2] the [322] escort [1] of [163] Mr [70] . Jackson [1] , without [6] further [3] parley [1] .

     "Nathaniel [1] Winkle [1] !" said [41] Mr [71] . Skimpin [5] .

     "Here [10] !" replied [14] a [134] feeble [1] voice [5] . Mr [72] . Winkle [2] entered [4] the [323] witness- [1] box [5] , and [178] having [7] been [8] duly [1] sworn [4] , bowed [4] to [114] the [324] judge [22] with [52] considerable [2] deference [1] .

     "Don't [5] look [6] at [28] me [10] , Sir [18] ," said [42] the [325] judge [23] sharply [1] , in [89] acknowledgment [1] of [164] the [326] salute [1] ; "look [7] at [29] the [327] jury [19] ."

      Mr [73] . Winkle [3] obeyed [1] the [328] mandate [1] , and [179] looked [7] at [30] the [329] place [4] where [3] he [54] thought [3] it [38] most [12] probable [1] the [330] jury [20] might [3] be [27] ; for [45] seeing [1] anything [1] in [90] his [63] then [14] state [6] of [165] intellectual [1] complication [1] was [59] wholly [1] out [8] of [166] the [331] question [2] .

      Mr [74] . Winkle [4] was [60] then [15] examined [1] by [33] Mr [75] . Skimpin [6] , who [27] , being [6] a [135] promising [1] young [3] man [17] of [167] two [11] or [33] three-and-forty [1] , was [61] of [168] course [6] anxious [1] to [115] confuse [1] a [136] witness [4] who [28] was [62] notoriously [1] predisposed [1] in [91] favour [1] of [169] the [332] other [8] side [2] , as [33] much [3] as [34] he [55] could [6] .

     "Now [5] , Sir [19] ," said [43] Mr [76] . Skimpin [7] , "have [14] the [333] goodness [1] to [116] let [7] his [64] Lordship [1] know [7] what [12] your [4] name [3] is [37] , will [15] you [43] ?" and [180] Mr [77] . Skimpin [8] inclined [1] his [65] head [5] on [49] one [17] side [3] to [117] listen [1] with [53] great [8] sharpness [1] to [118] the [334] answer [2] , and [181] glanced [2] at [31] the [335] jury [21] meanwhile [2] , as [35] if [13] to [119] imply [1] that [69] he [56] rather [5] expected [1] Mr [78] . Winkle's [1] natural [2] taste [2] for [46] perjury [1] would [5] induce [1] him [19] to [120] give [1] some [6] name [4] which [28] did [3] not [21] belong [1] to [121] him [20] .

     "Winkle [5] ," replied [15] the [336] witness [5] .

     "What's [1] your [5] Christian [1] name [5] , Sir [20] ?" angrily [1] inquired [6] the [337] little [24] judge [24] .

     "Nathaniel [2] , Sir [21] ."

     "Daniel [1] —any [8] other [9] name [6] ?"

     "Nathaniel [3] , sir [22] —my [40] Lord [17] , I [62] mean [3] ."

     "Nathaniel [4] Daniel [2] , or [34] Daniel [3] Nathaniel [5] ?"

     "No [20] , my [41] Lord [18] , only [6] Nathaniel [6] —not [22] Daniel [4] at [32] all [15] ."

     "What [13] did [4] you [44] tell [7] me [11] it [39] was [63] Daniel [5] for [47] , then [16] , sir [23] ?" inquired [7] the [338] judge [25] .

     "I [63] didn't [2] , my [42] Lord [19] ," replied [16] Mr [79] . Winkle [6] .

     "You [45] did [5] , Sir [24] ," replied [17] the [339] judge [26] , with [54] a [137] severe [1] frown [1] . "How [5] could [7] I [64] have [15] got [5] Daniel [6] on [50] my [43] notes [2] , unless [2] you [46] told [1] me [12] so [10] , Sir [25] ?" This [40] argument [1] was [64] , of [170] course [7] , unanswerable [1] .

     "Mr [80] . Winkle [7] has [8] rather [6] a [138] short [4] memory [1] , my [44] Lord [20] ," interposed [2] Mr [81] . Skimpin [9] , with [55] another [4] glance [2] at [33] the [340] jury [22] . "We [4] shall [14] find [4] means [2] to [122] refresh [1] it [40] before [11] we [5] have [16] quite [1] done [4] with [56] him [21] , I [65] dare [1] say [12] ."

     "You [47] had [31] better [8] be [28] careful [2] , Sir [26] ," said [44] the [341] little [25] judge [27] , with [57] a [139] sinister [1] look [8] at [34] the [342] witness [6] .

      Poor [1] Mr [82] . Winkle [8] bowed [5] , and [182] endeavoured [1] to [123] feign [1] an [11] easiness [1] of [171] manner [10] , which [29] , in [92] his [66] then [17] state [7] of [172] confusion [1] , gave [5] him [22] rather [7] the [343] air [1] of [173] a [140] disconcerted [1] pickpocket [1] .

     "Now [6] , Mr [83] . Winkle [9] ," said [45] Mr [84] . Skimpin [10] , "attend [1] to [124] me [13] , if [14] you [48] please [2] , Sir [27] ; and [183] let [8] me [14] recommend [1] you [49] , for [48] your [6] own [3] sake [1] , to [125] bear [1] in [93] mind [4] his [67] Lordship's [2] injunctions [1] to [126] be [29] careful [3] . I [66] believe [3] you [50] are [15] a [141] particular [3] friend [6] of [174] Mr [85] . Pickwick [40] , the [344] defendant [9] , are [16] you [51] not [23] ?"

     "I [67] have [17] known [2] Mr [86] . Pickwick [41] now [7] , as [36] well [9] as [37] I [68] recollect [3] at [35] this [41] moment [2] , nearly [1] —"

     "Pray [2] , Mr [87] . Winkle [10] , do [11] not [24] evade [1] the [345] question [3] . Are [17] you [52] , or [35] are [18] you [53] not [25] , a [142] particular [4] friend [7] of [175] the [346] defendant's [1] ?"

     "I [69] was [65] just [7] about [8] to [127] say [13] , that [70] —"

     "Will [16] you [54] , or [36] will [17] you [55] not [26] , answer [3] my [45] question [4] , Sir [28] ?"

     "If [15] you [56] don't [6] answer [4] the [347] question [5] , you [57] "ll [1] be [30] committed [1] , Sir [29] ," interposed [3] the [348] little [26] judge [28] , looking [5] over [4] his [68] note-book [2] .

     "Come [2] , Sir [30] ," said [46] Mr [88] . Skimpin [11] , "yes [5] or [37] no [21] , if [16] you [58] please [3] ."

     "Yes [6] , I [70] am [13] ," replied [18] Mr [89] . Winkle [11] .

     "Yes [7] , you [59] are [19] . And [184] why [5] couldn't [1] you [60] say [14] that [71] at [36] once [3] , Sir [31] ? Perhaps [1] you [61] know [8] the [349] plaintiff [10] too [5] ? Eh [1] , Mr [90] . Winkle [12] ?"

     "I [71] don't [7] know [9] her [21] ; I [72] "ve [1] seen [1] her [22] ."

     "Oh [2] , you [62] don't [8] know [10] her [23] , but [20] you [63] "ve [2] seen [2] her [24] ? Now [8] , have [18] the [350] goodness [2] to [128] tell [8] the [351] gentlemen [45] of [176] the [352] jury [23] what [14] you [64] mean [4] by [34] that [72] , Mr [91] . Winkle [13] ."

     "I [73] mean [5] that [73] I [74] am [14] not [27] intimate [2] with [58] her [25] , but [21] I [75] have [19] seen [3] her [26] when [21] I [76] went [3] to [129] call [3] on [51] Mr [92] . Pickwick [42] , in [94] Goswell [3] Street [5] ."

     "How [6] often [1] have [20] you [65] seen [4] her [27] , Sir [32] ?"

     "How [7] often [2] ?"

     "Yes [8] , Mr [93] . Winkle [14] , how [8] often [3] ? I [77] "ll [2] repeat [1] the [353] question [6] for [49] you [66] a [143] dozen [2] times [1] , if [17] you [67] require [1] it [41] , Sir [33] ." And [185] the [354] learned [11] gentleman [12] , with [59] a [144] firm [1] and [186] steady [1] frown [2] , placed [5] his [69] hands [4] on [52] his [70] hips [1] , and [187] smiled [5] suspiciously [1] to [130] the [355] jury [24] .

      On [53] this [42] question [7] there [13] arose [1] the [356] edifying [1] brow-beating [1] , customary [1] on [54] such [8] points [1] . First [7] of [177] all [16] , Mr [94] . Winkle [15] said [47] it [42] was [66] quite [2] impossible [2] for [50] him [23] to [131] say [15] how [9] many [6] times [2] he [57] had [32] seen [5] Mrs [42] . Bardell [21] . Then [18] he [58] was [67] asked [1] if [18] he [59] had [33] seen [6] her [28] twenty [1] times [3] , to [132] which [30] he [60] replied [19] , "Certainly [2] —more [9] than [6] that [74] ." Then [19] he [61] was [68] asked [2] whether [3] he [62] hadn't [1] seen [7] her [29] a [145] hundred [1] times [4] —whether [4] he [63] couldn't [2] swear [3] that [75] he [64] had [34] seen [8] her [30] more [10] than [7] fifty [1] times [5] — whether [5] he [65] didn't [3] know [11] that [76] he [66] had [35] seen [9] her [31] at [37] least [2] seventy-five [1] times [6] , and [188] so [11] forth [2] ; the [357] satisfactory [1] conclusion [1] which [31] was [69] arrived [1] at [38] , at [39] last [3] , being [7] , that [77] he [67] had [36] better [9] take [3] care [2] of [178] himself [13] , and [189] mind [5] what [15] he [68] was [70] about [9] . The [358] witness [7] having [8] been [9] by [35] these [3] means [3] reduced [1] to [133] the [359] requisite [1] ebb [1] of [179] nervous [1] perplexity [1] , the [360] examination [1] was [71] continued [4] as [38] follows [2]

     "Pray [3] , Mr [95] . Winkle [16] , do [12] you [68] remember [1] calling [2] on [55] the [361] defendant [10] Pickwick [43] at [40] these [4] apartments [3] in [95] the [362] plaintiff's [3] house [4] in [96] Goswell [4] Street [6] , on [56] one [18] particular [5] morning [8] , in [97] the [363] month [1] of [180] July [2] last [4] ?"

     "Yes [9] , I [78] do [13] ."

     "Were [19] you [69] accompanied [1] on [57] that [78] occasion [4] by [36] a [146] friend [8] of [181] the [364] name [7] of [182] Tupman [1] , and [190] another [5] by [37] the [365] name [8] of [183] Snodgrass [2] ?"

     "Yes [10] , I [79] was [72] ."

     "Are [20] they [16] here [11] ?"

     "Yes [11] , they [17] are [21] ," replied [20] Mr [96] . Winkle [17] , looking [6] very [22] earnestly [2] towards [3] the [366] spot [2] where [4] his [71] friends [3] were [20] stationed [1] .

     "Pray [4] attend [2] to [134] me [15] , Mr [97] . Winkle [18] , and [191] never [6] mind [6] your [7] friends [4] ," said [48] Mr [98] . Skimpin [12] , with [60] another [6] expressive [1] look [9] at [41] the [367] jury [25] . "They [18] must [5] tell [9] their [10] stories [1] without [7] any [9] previous [1] consultation [1] with [61] you [70] , if [19] none [1] has [9] yet [2] taken [3] place [5] (another [7] look [10] at [42] the [368] jury [26] ). Now [9] , Sir [34] , tell [10] the [369] gentlemen [46] of [184] the [370] jury [27] what [16] you [71] saw [2] on [58] entering [2] the [371] defendant's [2] room [4] , on [59] this [43] particular [6] morning [9] . Come [3] ; out [9] with [62] it [43] , Sir [35] ; we [6] must [6] have [21] it [44] , sooner [2] or [38] later [1] ."

     "The [372] defendant [11] , Mr [99] . Pickwick [44] , was [73] holding [2] the [373] plaintiff [11] in [98] his [72] arms [3] , with [63] his [73] hands [5] clasping [1] her [32] waist [1] ," replied [21] Mr [100] . Winkle [19] with [64] natural [3] hesitation [1] , "and [192] the [374] plaintiff [12] appeared [5] to [135] have [22] fainted [1] away [5] ."

     "Did [6] you [72] hear [2] the [375] defendant [12] say [16] anything [2] ?"

     "I [80] heard [6] him [24] call [4] Mrs [43] . Bardell [22] a [147] good [6] creature [1] , and [193] I [81] heard [7] him [25] ask [1] her [33] to [136] compose [4] herself [6] , for [51] what [17] a [148] situation [2] it [45] was [74] , if [20] anybody [2] should [4] come [4] , or [39] words [3] to [137] that [79] effect [5] ."

     "Now [10] , Mr [101] . Winkle [20] , I [82] have [23] only [7] one [19] more [11] question [8] to [138] ask [2] you [73] , and [194] I [83] beg [3] you [74] to [139] bear [2] in [99] mind [7] his [74] Lordship's [3] caution [1] . Will [18] you [75] undertake [1] to [140] swear [4] that [80] Pickwick [45] , the [376] defendant [13] , did [7] not [28] say [17] on [60] the [377] occasion [5] in [100] question [9] —"My [46] dear [12] Mrs [44] . Bardell [23] , you [76] "re [1] a [149] good [7] creature [2] ; compose [5] yourself [3] to [141] this [44] situation [3] , for [52] to [142] this [45] situation [4] you [77] must [7] come [5] ," or [40] words [4] to [143] that [81] effect [6] ?"

     "I [84] —I [85] didn't [4] understand [2] him [26] so [12] , certainly [3] ," said [49] Mr [102] . Winkle [21] , astounded [1] on [61] this [46] ingenious [1] dove-tailing [1] of [185] the [378] few [3] words [5] he [69] had [37] heard [8] . "I [86] was [75] on [62] the [379] staircase [1] , and [195] couldn't [3] hear [3] distinctly [4] ; the [380] impression [3] on [63] my [47] mind [8] is [38] —"

     "The [381] gentlemen [47] of [186] the [382] jury [28] want [1] none [2] of [187] the [383] impressions [1] on [64] your [8] mind [9] , Mr [103] . Winkle [22] , which [32] I [87] fear [2] would [6] be [31] of [188] little [27] service [1] to [144] honest [1] , straightforward [1] men [5] ," interposed [4] Mr [104] . Skimpin [13] . "You [78] were [21] on [65] the [384] staircase [2] , and [196] didn't [5] distinctly [5] hear [4] ; but [22] you [79] will [19] not [29] swear [5] that [82] Pickwick [46] did [8] not [30] make [2] use [2] of [189] the [385] expressions [1] I [88] have [24] quoted [1] ? Do [14] I [89] understand [3] that [83] ?"

     "No [22] , I [90] will [20] not [31] ," replied [22] Mr [105] . Winkle [23] ; and [197] down [11] sat [7] Mr [106] . Skimpin [14] with [65] a [150] triumphant [1] countenance [3] .

      Mr [107] . Pickwick's [6] case [8] had [38] not [32] gone [2] off [4] in [101] so [13] particularly [2] happy [1] a [151] manner [11] , up [9] to [145] this [47] point [3] , that [84] it [46] could [8] very [23] well [10] afford [4] to [146] have [25] any [10] additional [1] suspicion [2] cast [1] upon [11] it [47] . But [23] as [39] it [48] could [9] afford [5] to [147] be [32] placed [6] in [102] a [152] rather [8] better [10] light [1] , if [21] possible [3] , Mr [108] . Phunky [6] rose [2] for [53] the [386] purpose [1] of [190] getting [1] something [3] important [3] out [10] of [191] Mr [109] . Winkle [24] in [103] cross-examination [1] . Whether [6] he [70] did [9] get [3] anything [3] important [4] out [11] of [192] him [27] , will [21] immediately [6] appear [2] .

     "I [91] believe [4] , Mr [110] . Winkle [25] ," said [50] Mr [111] . Phunky [7] , "that [85] Mr [112] . Pickwick [47] is [39] not [33] a [153] young [4] man [18] ?"

     "Oh [3] , no [23] ," replied [23] Mr [113] . Winkle [26] ; "old [1] enough [2] to [148] be [33] my [48] father [2] ."

     "You [80] have [26] told [2] my [49] learned [12] friend [9] that [86] you [81] have [27] known [3] Mr [114] . Pickwick [48] a [154] long [5] time [9] . Had [39] you [82] ever [3] any [11] reason [1] to [149] suppose [3] or [41] believe [5] that [87] he [71] was [76] about [10] to [150] be [34] married [1] ?"

     "Oh [4] , no [24] ; certainly [4] not [34] ;" replied [24] Mr [115] . Winkle [27] with [66] so [14] much [4] eagerness [2] , that [88] Mr [116] . Phunky [8] ought [4] to [151] have [28] got [6] him [28] out [12] of [193] the [387] box [6] with [67] all [17] possible [4] dispatch [1] . Lawyers [1] hold [3] that [89] there [14] are [22] two [12] kinds [1] of [194] particularly [3] bad [1] witnesses [3] —a [155] reluctant [1] witness [8] , and [198] a [156] too-willing [1] witness [9] ; it [49] was [77] Mr [117] . Winkle's [2] fate [1] to [152] figure [2] in [104] both [5] characters [1] .

     "I [92] will [22] even [4] go [3] further [4] than [8] this [48] , Mr [118] . Winkle [28] ," continued [5] Mr [119] . Phunky [9] , in [105] a [157] most [13] smooth [1] and [199] complacent [1] manner [12] . "Did [10] you [83] ever [4] see [5] anything [4] in [106] Mr [120] . Pickwick's [7] manner [13] and [200] conduct [1] towards [4] the [388] opposite [3] sex [2] , to [153] induce [2] you [84] to [154] believe [6] that [90] he [72] ever [5] contemplated [2] matrimony [1] of [195] late [3] years [4] , in [107] any [12] case [9] ?"

     "Oh [5] , no [25] ; certainly [5] not [35] ," replied [25] Mr [121] . Winkle [29] .

     "Has [10] his [75] behaviour [1] , when [22] females [1] have [29] been [10] in [108] the [389] case [10] , always [3] been [11] that [91] of [196] a [158] man [19] , who [29] , having [9] attained [1] a [159] pretty [2] advanced [2] period [1] of [197] life [2] , content [2] with [68] his [76] own [4] occupations [1] and [201] amusements [1] , treats [1] them [6] only [8] as [40] a [160] father [3] might [4] his [77] daughters [1] ?"

     "Not [36] the [390] least [3] doubt [2] of [198] it [50] ," replied [26] Mr [122] . Winkle [30] , in [109] the [391] fulness [1] of [199] his [78] heart [3] . "That [92] is [40] —yes [12] —oh [6] , yes [13] —certainly [6] ."

     "You [85] have [30] never [7] known [4] anything [5] in [110] his [79] behaviour [2] towards [5] Mrs [45] . Bardell [24] , or [42] any [13] other [10] female [3] , in [111] the [392] least [4] degree [1] suspicious [4] ?" said [51] Mr [123] . Phunky [10] , preparing [2] to [155] sit [4] down [12] ; for [54] Serjeant [39] Snubbin [11] was [78] winking [1] at [43] him [29] .

     "N-n-no [1] ," replied [27] Mr [124] . Winkle [31] , "except [2] on [66] one [20] trifling [1] occasion [6] , which [33] , I [93] have [31] no [26] doubt [3] , might [5] be [35] easily [1] explained [1] ."

      Now [11] , if [22] the [393] unfortunate [1] Mr [125] . Phunky [11] had [40] sat [8] down [13] when [23] Serjeant [40] Snubbin [12] had [41] winked [1] at [44] him [30] , or [43] if [23] Serjeant [41] Buzfuz [28] had [42] stopped [2] this [49] irregular [1] cross-examination [2] at [45] the [394] outset [1] (which [34] he [73] knew [2] better [11] than [9] to [156] do [15] ; observing [1] Mr [126] . Winkle's [3] anxiety [1] , and [202] well [11] knowing [2] it [51] would [7] , in [112] all [18] probability [2] , lead [1] to [157] something [4] serviceable [1] to [158] him [31] ), this [50] unfortunate [2] admission [1] would [8] not [37] have [32] been [12] elicited [1] . The [395] moment [3] the [396] words [6] fell [1] from [19] Mr [127] . Winkle's [4] lips [1] , Mr [128] . Phunky [12] sat [9] down [14] , and [203] Serjeant [42] Snubbin [13] rather [9] hastily [1] told [3] him [32] he [74] might [6] leave [1] the [397] box [7] , which [35] Mr [129] . Winkle [32] prepared [5] to [159] do [16] with [69] great [9] readiness [1] , when [24] Serjeant [43] Buzfuz [29] stopped [3] him [33] .

     "Stay [1] , Mr [130] . Winkle [33] , stay [2] !" said [52] Serjeant [44] Buzfuz [30] , "will [23] your [9] Lordship [2] have [33] the [398] goodness [3] to [160] ask [3] him [34] , what [18] this [51] one [21] instance [1] of [200] suspicious [5] behaviour [3] towards [6] females [2] on [67] the [399] part [3] of [201] this [52] gentleman [13] , who [30] is [41] old [2] enough [3] to [161] be [36] his [80] father [4] , was [79] ?"

     "You [86] hear [5] what [19] the [400] learned [13] counsel [9] says [3] , Sir [36] ," observed [1] the [401] judge [29] , turning [2] to [162] the [402] miserable [1] and [204] agonised [1] Mr [131] . Winkle [34] . "Describe [1] the [403] occasion [7] to [163] which [36] you [87] refer [1] ."

     "My [50] Lord [21] ," said [53] Mr [132] . Winkle [35] , trembling [1] with [70] anxiety [2] , "I [94] —I [95] "d [1] rather [10] not [38] ."

     "Perhaps [2] so [15] ," said [54] the [404] little [28] judge [30] ; "but [24] you [88] must [8] ."

      Amid [1] the [405] profound [2] silence [9] of [202] the [406] whole [6] court [14] , Mr [133] . Winkle [36] faltered [2] out [13] , that [93] the [407] trifling [2] circumstance [1] of [203] suspicion [3] was [80] Mr [134] . Pickwick's [8] being [8] found [2] in [113] a [161] lady's [1] sleeping-apartment [1] at [46] midnight [1] ; which [37] had [43] terminated [1] , he [75] believed [1] , in [114] the [408] breaking [2] off [5] of [204] the [409] projected [1] marriage [3] of [205] the [410] lady [3] in [115] question [10] , and [205] had [44] led [3] , he [76] knew [3] , to [164] the [411] whole [7] party [2] being [9] forcibly [2] carried [3] before [12] George [1] Nupkins [1] , Esq [1] ., magistrate [1] and [206] justice [11] of [206] the [412] peace [3] , for [55] the [413] borough [1] of [207] Ipswich [1] !

     "You [89] may [5] leave [2] the [414] box [8] , Sir [37] ," said [55] Serjeant [45] Snubbin [14] . Mr [135] . Winkle [37] did [11] leave [3] the [415] box [9] , and [207] rushed [2] with [71] delirious [1] haste [1] to [165] the [416] George [2] and [208] Vulture [1] , where [5] he [77] was [81] discovered [3] some [7] hours [1] after [9] , by [38] the [417] waiter [1] , groaning [1] in [116] a [162] hollow [1] and [209] dismal [1] manner [14] , with [72] his [81] head [6] buried [1] beneath [2] the [418] sofa [1] cushions [1] .

      Tracy [1] Tupman [2] , and [210] Augustus [1] Snodgrass [3] , were [22] severally [2] called [4] into [16] the [419] box [10] ; both [6] corroborated [1] the [420] testimony [3] of [208] their [11] unhappy [1] friend [10] ; and [211] each [2] was [82] driven [1] to [166] the [421] verge [1] of [209] desperation [1] by [39] excessive [1] badgering [1] .

      Susannah [1] Sanders [7] was [83] then [20] called [5] , and [212] examined [2] by [40] Serjeant [46] Buzfuz [31] , and [213] cross-examined [1] by [41] Serjeant [47] Snubbin [15] . Had [45] always [4] said [56] and [214] believed [2] that [94] Pickwick [49] would [9] marry [1] Mrs [46] . Bardell [25] ; knew [4] that [95] Mrs [47] . Bardell's [7] being [10] engaged [1] to [167] Pickwick [50] was [84] the [422] current [1] topic [1] of [210] conversation [3] in [117] the [423] neighbourhood [1] , after [10] the [424] fainting [2] in [118] July [3] ; had [46] been [13] told [4] it [52] herself [7] by [42] Mrs [48] . Mudberry [1] which [38] kept [2] a [163] mangle [1] , and [215] Mrs [49] . Bunkin [1] which [39] clear-starched [1] , but [25] did [12] not [39] see [6] either [3] Mrs [50] . Mudberry [2] or [44] Mrs [51] . Bunkin [2] in [119] court [15] . Had [47] heard [9] Pickwick [51] ask [4] the [425] little [29] boy [7] how [10] he [78] should [5] like [2] to [168] have [34] another [8] father [5] . Did [13] not [40] know [12] that [96] Mrs [52] . Bardell [26] was [85] at [47] that [97] time [10] keeping [3] company [1] with [73] the [426] baker [1] , but [26] did [14] know [13] that [98] the [427] baker [2] was [86] then [21] a [164] single [8] man [20] and [216] is [42] now [12] married [2] . Couldn't [4] swear [6] that [99] Mrs [53] . Bardell [27] was [87] not [41] very [24] fond [1] of [211] the [428] baker [3] , but [27] should [6] think [6] that [100] the [429] baker [4] was [88] not [42] very [25] fond [2] of [212] Mrs [54] . Bardell [28] , or [45] he [79] wouldn't [1] have [35] married [3] somebody [1] else [2] . Thought [4] Mrs [55] . Bardell [29] fainted [2] away [6] on [68] the [430] morning [10] in [120] July [4] , because [2] Pickwick [52] asked [3] her [34] to [169] name [9] the [431] day [5] : knew [5] that [101] she [17] (witness [10] ) fainted [3] away [7] stone [1] dead [1] when [25] Mr [136] . Sanders [8] asked [4] her [35] to [170] name [10] the [432] day [6] , and [217] believed [3] that [102] everybody [3] as [41] called [6] herself [8] a [165] lady [4] would [10] do [17] the [433] same [3] , under [3] similar [1] circumstances [3] . Heard [10] Pickwick [53] ask [5] the [434] boy [8] the [435] question [11] about [11] the [436] marbles [2] , but [28] upon [12] her [36] oath [1] did [15] not [43] know [14] the [437] difference [1] between [2] an [12] "alley [3] tor [1] " and [218] a [166] "commoney [1] ."

      By [43] the [438] court [16] .—During [6] the [439] period [2] of [213] her [37] keeping [4] company [2] with [74] Mr [137] . Sanders [9] , had [48] received [1] love [1] letters [6] , like [3] other [11] ladies [1] . In [121] the [440] course [8] of [214] their [12] correspondence [2] Mr [138] . Sanders [10] had [49] often [4] called [7] her [38] a [167] "duck [1] ," but [29] never [8] "chops [4] ," nor [5] yet [3] "tomato [5] sauce [5] ." He [80] was [89] particularly [4] fond [3] of [215] ducks [1] . Perhaps [3] if [24] he [81] had [50] been [14] as [42] fond [4] of [216] chops [5] and [219] tomato [6] sauce [6] , he [82] might [7] have [36] called [8] her [39] that [103] , as [43] a [168] term [2] of [217] affection [1] .

      Serjeant [48] Buzfuz [32] now [13] rose [3] with [75] more [12] importance [1] than [10] he [83] had [51] yet [4] exhibited [1] , if [25] that [104] were [23] possible [5] , and [220] vociferated [1] ; "Call [5] Samuel [1] Weller [2] ."

      It [53] was [90] quite [3] unnecessary [1] to [171] call [6] Samuel [2] Weller [3] ; for [56] Samuel [3] Weller [4] stepped [1] briskly [1] into [17] the [441] box [11] the [442] instant [2] his [82] name [11] was [91] pronounced [1] ; and [221] placing [2] his [83] hat [2] on [69] the [443] floor [5] , and [222] his [84] arms [4] on [70] the [444] rail [2] , took [6] a [169] bird's-eye [1] view [2] of [218] the [445] Bar [3] , and [223] a [170] comprehensive [1] survey [2] of [219] the [446] Bench [1] , with [76] a [171] remarkably [1] cheerful [1] and [224] lively [1] aspect [1] . "What's [2] your [10] name [12] , sir [38] ?" inquired [8] the [447] judge [31] .

     "Sam [2] Weller [5] , my [51] Lord [22] ," replied [28] that [105] gentleman [14] .

     "Do [18] you [90] spell [1] it [54] with [77] a [172] "V [1] " or [46] a [173] "W [1] "?" inquired [9] the [448] judge [32] .

     "That [106] depends [1] upon [13] the [449] taste [3] and [225] fancy [1] of [220] the [450] speller [1] , my [52] Lord [23] ," replied [29] Sam [3] ; "I [96] never [9] had [52] occasion [8] to [172] spell [2] it [55] more [13] than [11] once [4] or [47] twice [1] in [122] my [53] life [3] , but [30] I [97] spells [1] it [56] with [78] a [174] 'V [1] .'"

      Here [12] a [175] voice [6] in [123] the [451] gallery [3] exclaimed [2] aloud [1] , "Quite [4] right [3] too [6] , Samivel [1] , quite [5] right [4] . Put [7] it [57] down [15] a [176] "we [7] ," my [54] Lord [24] , put [8] it [58] down [16] a [177] 'we [1] .'"

     "Who [31] is [43] that [107] , who [32] dares [1] address [2] the [452] court [17] ?" said [57] the [453] little [30] judge [33] , looking [7] up [10] . "Usher [2] ."

     "Yes [14] , my [55] Lord [25] ."

     "Bring [1] that [108] person [1] here [13] instantly [1] ."

     "Yes [15] , my [56] Lord [26] ."

      But [31] as [44] the [454] usher [3] didn't [6] find [5] the [455] person [2] , he [84] didn't [7] bring [2] him [35] ; and [226] , after [11] a [178] great [10] commotion [1] , all [19] the [456] people [1] who [33] had [53] got [7] up [11] to [173] look [11] for [57] the [457] culprit [1] , sat [10] down [17] again [4] . The [458] little [31] judge [34] turned [3] to [174] the [459] witness [11] as [45] soon [2] as [46] his [85] indignation [2] would [11] allow [1] him [36] to [175] speak [2] , and [227] said [58]

     "Do [19] you [91] know [15] who [34] that [109] was [92] , sir [39] ?"

     "I [98] rayther [1] suspect [1] it [59] was [93] my [57] father [6] , my [58] lord [27] ," replied [30] Sam [4] .

     "Do [20] you [92] see [7] him [37] here [14] now [14] ?" said [59] the [460] judge [35] .

     "No [27] , I [99] don't [9] , my [59] Lord [28] ," replied [31] Sam [5] , staring [1] right [5] up [12] into [18] the [461] lantern [1] at [48] the [462] roof [1] of [221] the [463] court [18] .

     "If [26] you [93] could [10] have [37] pointed [1] him [38] out [14] , I [100] would [12] have [38] committed [2] him [39] instantly [2] ," said [60] the [464] judge [36] .

      Sam [6] bowed [6] his [86] acknowledgments [1] and [228] turned [4] , with [79] unimpaired [1] cheerfulness [1] of [222] countenance [4] , towards [7] Serjeant [49] Buzfuz [33] .

     "Now [15] , Mr [139] . Weller [6] ," said [61] Serjeant [50] Buzfuz [34] .

     "Now [16] , sir [40] ," replied [32] Sam [7] .

     "I [101] believe [7] you [94] are [23] in [124] the [465] service [2] of [223] Mr [140] . Pickwick [54] , the [466] defendant [14] in [125] this [53] case [11] ? Speak [3] up [13] , if [27] you [95] please [4] , Mr [141] . Weller [7] ."

     "I [102] mean [6] to [176] speak [4] up [14] , Sir [41] ," replied [33] Sam [8] ; "I [103] am [15] in [126] the [467] service [3] o [2] " that [110] "ere [1] gen [1] "l [1] "man [21] , and [229] a [179] wery [1] good [8] service [4] it [60] is [44] ."

     "Little [32] to [177] do [21] , and [230] plenty [1] to [178] get [4] , I [104] suppose [4] ?" said [62] Serjeant [51] Buzfuz [35] , with [80] jocularity [1] .

     "Oh [7] , quite [6] enough [4] to [179] get [5] , Sir [42] , as [47] the [468] soldier [1] said [63] ven [1] they [19] ordered [2] him [40] three [12] hundred [2] and [231] fifty [2] lashes [1] ," replied [34] Sam [9] .
