  • Before they separated, however, that gentleman and Mr. Benjamin Allen drew Mr. Pickwick aside with an air of some mystery; and Mr. Bob Sawyer, thrusting his forefinger between two of Mr. Pickwick's ribs, and thereby displaying his native drollery, and his knowledge of the anatomy of the human frame, at one and the same time, inquired--

    'I say, old boy, where do you hang out?'

    Mr. Pickwick replied that he was at present suspended at the George and Vulture.

    'I wish you'd come and see me,' said Bob Sawyer.
