Notable Businessmen

"The Spirit stopped beside one little knot of business
men. Observing that the hand was pointed to them, Scrooge
advanced to listen to their talk.
'No,' said a great fat man with a monstrous chin,' I
don't know much about it, either way. I only know he's dead.'
'When did he die.' inquired another.
'Last night, I believe.'
Why, what was the matter with him.' asked a third, taking
a vast quantity of snuff out of a very large snuff-box.
'I thought he'd never die.'
'God knows,' said the first, with a yawn.
'What has he done with his money.' asked a red-faced
gentleman with a pendulous excrescence on the end of his
nose, that shook like the gills of a turkey-cock.
'I haven't heard,' said the man with the large chin,
yawning again. 'Left it to his company, perhaps. He hasn't
left it to me. That's all I know.'
This pleasantry was received with a general laugh.
'It's likely to be a very cheap funeral,' said the same
speaker;' for upon my life I don't know of anybody to go
to it. Suppose we make up a party and volunteer.'
'I don't mind going if a lunch is provided,' observed the
gentleman with the excrescence on his nose. 'But I must
be fed, if I make one.'
Another laugh."
