the moment was not quite so triumphant as it ought to have been. To begin with, The resources of Tommy's pockets were somewhat limited. In the end, the fair was managed, the lady recollecting a plebian two prints and the driver, still holding the varied assortment of coins in his hand, was prevailed upon to move on, which he did after one last horse demand as to what the gentleman thought he was giving him. I think you've given him too much, Tommy said to pins innocently. I fancy he wants to give some of it back. It was possibly this remark, which induced the driver to move away. Well, said Mr Beresford at length, able to relieve his feelings. What the dickens did you want to take a taxi for? I was afraid I might be late and keep you waiting, said tuppence, gently. Afraid you might be late. Oh, Lord, I give it up, said Mr Beresford. And really and truly continue tuppence opening her eyes very wide. I haven't got anything smaller than a £5 note. You did that part of it very well, old being. But all the same, the fellow wasn't taken in, not for a moment. No setup. It's thoughtfully. He didn't believe it.

The caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence. At last, the caterpillar took the hooker out of its mouth and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice. Who are you? Said the caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation, Alice replied, rather shyly. I hardly know, sir. Just at present. At least I know who I was when I got up this morning. But I think I must have been changed several times since then. What do you mean by that? Said the Caterpillar Stoneleigh. Explain yourself. I can't explain myself. I'm afraid, sir, said Alice. Because I'm not myself. You see, I don't see, said the caterpillar. I'm afraid I can't put it more clearly, Alice replied very politely, for I can't understand it myself. To begin with and being so many different sizes in a day is very confusing. It isn't, said the caterpillar. Well, perhaps you haven't found it so yet, said Alice. But when you have to turn into a chrysalis, you will. Someday, you know. And then after that, into a butterfly, I should think you'll feel it a little queer, won't you?
