|Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol (1938) Feature|
"Hallo. A great deal of steam. The pudding was out of the|
copper. A smell like a washing-day. That was the cloth.
A smell like an eating-house and a pastrycook's next door
to each other, with a laundress's next door to that. That
was the pudding. In half a minute Mrs Cratchit entered --
flushed, but smiling proudly -- with the pudding, like a
speckled cannon-ball, so hard and firm, blazing in half
of half-a-quartern of ignited brandy, and bedight with
Christmas holly stuck into the top."
