MR. PEGGOTTY .560 A hale, grey-haired old man.
THE WANDERER-Mr Peggott ' He was always wandering about from place to place, with his one object of recovering his niece before him.
MR. MICAWBER IN HIS ELEMENT 384 'I never saw a man so thoroughly enjoy himself amid the fragrance of lemon-peel and sugar, the odour of burning rum, and the steam of boiling water, as Mr. Micawber did that afternoon. It was wonderful to see his face shining at us out of a thin cloud of these delicate fumes, as he stirred, and mixed, and tasted, and looked as if he were making, instead of punch, a fortune for his family, down to the latest posterity.'
MRS. MICAWBER AND FAMILY 128 'A thin and faded lady, not at all young, who was sitting in the parlour.'
TRADDLES AND I VISIT MR. MICAWBER 544 '"Gentlemen," returned Mr. Micawber, "do with me as you will I I am a straw upon the surface of the deep, and am tossed in all directions by the elephants— I beg your pardon ; I should have said the elements."'
STEERFORTH 'A handsome well-formed young man, dressed with a tasteful easy negligence.'
THE ELDEST MISS LARKINS 'She approaches me — she, the eldest Miss Larkins— and asks me pleasantly, if I dance? 'I stammer, with a bow, "With you, Miss Larkins."'
MR. PEGGOTTY AND HAM 410 'It was on the beach, close down by the sea, that I found them.'
MR. DICK AND HIS KITE 224 ' I used to fancy, as I sat by him of an evening, on a green slope, and saw him watch the kite high in the quiet air, that it lifted his mind out of its confusion, and bore it (such was my boyish thought) into the skies.'
'Astoutish, middle-aged person, in a brown suitout and black tights and shoes, with no more hair upon his head (which was a large one, and very shining) than there is upon an egg. His clothes were shabby, but he had an imposing shirt-collar on. He carried a jaunty sort of stick, with a large pair of rusty tassels to it ; and a quizziug-glass hung outside his coat,— for ornament, I after- wards found, as he very seldom looked through it, and couldn't see anything when he did.'
MISS MOWCHER 320 'The door opened, and Littimer, with his habitual serenity quite undisturbed, announced— " Miss Mowcherl"'
THE FRIENDLY WAITER 96 'It was quite delightful to me to find him so pleasant. He was a twinkling-eyed, pimple-faced man, with his hair standing upright all over his head ; and as he stood with one arm akimbo, holding up the glass to the light with the other hand, he looked quite friendly.'
MR. MURDSTONE 32 'His regular eyebrows, and the rich white, and black, and brown, of his complexion — confound his complexion, and liis memory ! — made me think him, in spite of my misgivings, a very handsome man.'
LITTLE EM'LY AND I 64 'The days sported by iis, as if Time had not grown up himself yet, but were a child too, and always at play.'
I REACH CANTERBURY 160 ' I seemed to be sustained and led on by my fanciful picture of my mother in her youth, before I came into the world. It always kept me company. It was there, among the hops, when I lay down to sleep ; it was with me on my waking in the morning ; it went before me all day. I have associated it, ever since, with the sunny street of Canterbury, dozing as it were in the hot light ; and with the sight of its old houses and gateways, and the stately grey cathedral, with the rooks sailing round the towers.'
