"You may bestride my senseless
corse, sir. That is very likely. I can
imagine a mind like yours deriving
great satisfaction from any
measure of that kind. But while I
continue to be called upon to
exist, sir, you must strike at him
through me."
Mr Pecksniff.
"Occasionally we had the
presumption to console
ourselves with the remark that
Truth would in the end prevail,
and Virtue be triumphant; but not

"I have completed my
arrangements for going to
America; and you will be surprised
to hear that i am to be
accompanied by Mark Tapley,
upon whom I have stumbled
strangely in London." Martin.
"And even while the guard helped
her man up with the trunk, did he
send the glad echoes of his bugle
careering down the chimneys of
the distant Pecksniff, as if the
coach expressed its exultation in
the rescue of Tom Pinch".
