The seriousness of the task I had un

to execute it, had given an earnestness
and rapidity to my exertions which appe
tite could not have inspired, when my
plate having got somewhat over the edge
of the table, upon my leaning forward,
tilted up, and down slid the disgusting
mess into my lap. My handkerchief, un
uble to bear so weighty a load, bent under
in its turn, and a great portion of it land
ed safely in my hat. The plate instantly
righted itself as I raised my person, and
pocket, and had crushed out the liouid
butter, and the soft past like vegetable,
which had bedaubed and dripped down
them, till it seemed as if it were actually
dissolving my pantaloons.
Darling from the spot, I sprang to the
place where I had left my hat, but before
I could reach it, a sudden storm of wrath
was heard at the door,
