Holiday RomancebyCharles Dickens
This beginning-part is not made out of anybody’s head,you know. Its real. You must believe this beginning-partmore than what comes after, else you won’t understand howwhat comes after came to be written. You must believe it all;but you must believe this most, please. I am the editor of it.Bob Redforth (he’s my cousin, and shaking the table onpurpose) wanted to be the editor of it; but I said he shouldn’tbecause he couldn’t.
has no idea of being an editor.Nettie Ashford is my bride. We were married in the right-hand closet in the corner of the dancing-school, where firstwe met, with a ring (a green one) from Wilkingwater’s toy-shop. I owed for it out of my pocket-money. When the rap-turous ceremony was over, we all four went up the lane andlet off a cannon (brought loaded in Bob Redforth’s waist-coat-pocket) to announce our nuptials. It flew right up whenit went off, and turned over. Next day, Lieut.-Col. RobinRedforth was united, with similar ceremonies, to Alice Rain-bird. This time the cannon burst with a most terrific explo-sion, and made a puppy bark.My peerless bride was, at the period of which we nowtreat, in captivity at Miss Grimmer’s. Drowvey and Grimmeris the partnership, and opinion is divided which is the great-est beast. The lovely bride of the colonel was also immuredin the dungeons of the same establishment. A vow was en-tered into, between the colonel and myself, that we wouldcut them out on the following Wednesday when walkingtwo and two.Under the desperate circumstances of the case, the activebrain of the colonel, combining with his lawless pursuit (heis a pirate),suggested an attack with fireworks. This, how-ever, from motives ofhumanity, was abandoned as too ex-pensive.
