|Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol Feature - Scrooge (1935)|
"He went to church, and walked about the streets, and|
watched the people hurrying to and fro, and patted children
on the head, and questioned beggars, and looked down into
the kitchens of houses, and up to the windows, and found
that everything could yield him pleasure. He had never
dreamed that any walk -- that anything -- could give him so
much happiness. In the afternoon he turned his steps
towards his nephew's house.
He passed the door a dozen times, before he had the courage
to go up and knock. But he made a dash, and did it:
'Is your master at home, my dear.' said Scrooge to the
'Where is he, my love.' said Scrooge.
He's in the dining-room, sir, along with mistress. I'll
show you up-stairs, if you please.'
'Thank you. He knows me,' said Scrooge, with his hand
already on the dining-room lock. 'I'll go in here, my dear.'"
