Excerpt From The English Bodley Family, And The Viking BodleysFirst Came A Gentleman Somewhat Over Forty Years Of Age, Bearing A Handbag With The Initials N B., Which Was As Much As To Say, Take Notice, This Is Nathan Bodley Directly Behind Him Walked A Boy Who Looked As Much Like Nathan Bodley As A Telescope Shut Up Looks Like A Telescope Open, And So It Was Very Clear That The Boy Was Son Of The Man If One Only Happened To Know That Nathan Bodley S Father Was Named Charles, He Would Understand In A Moment Why Nathan S Son Was Also Named Charles Charles He Was, Charles Bodley.Behind Charles Bodley Was A Girl Of Exactly The Same Age If They Had Been Brother And Sister They Would Have Been Twins As It Was, They Sometimes Went In The Family By The Name Of The Twin Cousins Charles Bodley Turned To The Girl As They All Went Stealth Ily Up The Steps, And Whispered Hoarsely Sarah, If It Was A Little Darker I Should Think I Was A Burglar.
