Excerpt from Mrs. Lirriper's Legacy: The Extra Christmas Number of All the Year Round, Conducted by Charles Dickens, for Christmas, 1864

AH It's pleasant to drop into my own easy chair my dear though a little palpitating what with trotting upstairs and what with trotting down, and why kitchen-stairs should all be corner stairs is for the builders to justify though I do not think they fully understand their trade and never did, else why the sameness and why not more conveniences and fewer draughts and like wise making a practice of laying the plaster on too thick I am well convinced which holds the damp, and as to chimney-pots putting them on by guess-work like hats at a party and no more knowino what their effect will be upon the smoke bless you than I do if so much, except that it'will mostly be either to send it down your throat in a straight form or give it a twist before it goes there. And what I says speak ing as I find of those new metal chimneys all manner of she es (there's a row of 'em at Miss 'ozenham's odging-house lower down on the other side of the way) is that they only work your smoke into artificial patterns for you before you swallow it and that I'd quite as soon swallow mine plain, the flavour being the same, not to mention the conceit of puttino up signs on the top of your house to Show the forms in which you take your smoke into your inside.
