You are quite sure,' said Barnacle junior, calling after him when he got to the door, unwilling wholly to relinquish the bright business idea he had conceived; 'that it's nothing about Tonnage?
So he went back to the Circumlocution Office, and once more sent up his card to Barnacle junior by a messenger who took it very ill indeed that he should come back again, and who was eating mashed potatoes and gravy behind a partition by the hall fire.
He was readmitted to the presence of Barnacle junior, and found that young gentleman singeing his knees now, and gaping his weary way on to four o'clock.
You stick to us in a devil of a manner,' Said Barnacle junior, looking over his shoulder.
Upon my soul you mustn't come into the place saying you want to know, you know,' remonstrated Barnacle junior, turning about and putting up the eye-glass.
Egad, you haven't got an appointment,' said Barnacle junior, as if the thing were growing serious.
Barnacle junior stared at him until his eye-glass fell out, and then put it in again and stared at him until it fell out again.
