Now I’ll tell you about it … and don’t laugh, because it’s absolutely serious. “He’s a very good fellow, Uncle Warpus is; you’ve got to understand that.

His long sandy-reddish face was etched out in wrinkles of enjoyment, and behind very small gilt-rimmed spectacles his pale-blue eyes had an almost unholy twinkle. He wrinkled them up; he snorted again, hoarsely, through his sandy moustache, pulled down his large tweed cap over one ear, and made a massive gesture that would have been as heavy as a smaller man’s blow.
