Excerpt from That Artful Vicar, Vol. 2 of 2: The Story of What a Clergyman Tried to Do for Others and Did for Himself
A well-dressed lady, with a flush of animation on her face; a tall, foxy-nosed, black-whiskered gentleman in colloquy with her, and evidently not doing much to pacify her, but rather saying things which seemed to add to her irritation ; and both these persons were standing on the steps of the Stilborough Town Hall. The lady hesitated; the gentleman was combating these hesitations. The lady at length yielded, and the gentleman looked round for somebody of whom he might ask a question. Providence hearkened favourably to his trouble, and sent him a furzy-haired, ruddy-whiskered gentleman with gooseberry eyes, who came tearing along, and clutched with one hand a bundle of papers, while with the other he mopped the dew from his brow.
