There was Pa Tuxton, an old feller
with a beard and glasses; a fat uncle; a big brother, who worked in a bank and was dressed like Moses in all his glory; and a little brother with a snub nose, that cheeky you'd have been surprised.
You've nigh slep' the clock around, young feller
," was the greeting.

An' I thought first I'd ha' ferrets an' dogs, an' be a rat-catcher; an' then I thought as I should like a bigger way o' life, as I didn't know so well; for I'n seen to the bottom o' rat-catching; an' I thought, an' thought, till at last I settled I'd be a packman,--for they're knowin' fellers

he's got to set in with,--I'm the feller
for yer all to come to, bredren,--I'll stand up for yer rights,--I'll fend 'em to the last breath!"
"And the feller
's livin' ter-day--right in this town, too."

Yer jest one little feller
amongst a hull lot of others, and yeh've got to keep quiet an' do what they tell yeh.
