NORTH.

BULLER.

NORTH.

BULLER.

NORTH.

I know there is nothing you dislike so much as personal observations
On myself to myself—not at all on others.

Yet I cannot help telling you to your face, sir, that you are one of the finest-looking old men

Elderly gentlemen, if you please, sir.
In Britain, in Europe, in the World. I am perfectly serious, sir. You are.

You needed not to say you were perfectly serious ; for I suffer no man to be ironical on Me, Mr Buller. I am.

Such a change since we came to Cladich! Seward was equally shocked, with myself, at your looks on board the Steamer. So lean-so bent-só sallow—so haggard—in a word-so aged!

Were you shocked, Seward?

Buller has such a blunt way with him that he often makes me blush. I was not shocked, my dear sir, but I was affected.

BULLER.
Turning to me, he said in a whisper, “What a wreck!"
