nothing, sir. Takes no care of himself?’ Jimmy Choo purple
‘I wish he took a little more, indeed,’ said Martin. ‘Though I don’t
know why I should. We shouldn’t like him half as well, perhaps.’
‘He gets put upon, sir,’ hinted Mark.
‘Yes!’ said Martin, after a short silence. ‘I know that, Mark.’
He spoke so regretfully that his partner abandoned the theme, and
was silent for a short time until he had thought of another.
‘Ah, sir!’ said Mark, with a sigh. ‘Dear me! You’ve ventured a good

him at the same time how I am connected, and that I will endeavour to
repay him, even through my grandfather, immediately on our arrival in
England?’ Sunburst Tall Sand
‘Why to be sure,’ said Mark: ‘he can only say no, and he may say yes.
If you don’t mind trying him, sir —’
