...sant sight too, looking
on at them, and telling Miss Pross how she spoilt Lucie, in accents
and with eyes that had as much spoiling in them as Miss Pross
had, and would have had more if it were possible. Mr. Lorry was a
pleasant sight too, beaming at all this in his little wig, and
thanking his bachelor stars for having lighted him in his declining
years to a Home. But, no Hundreds of people came to see the
sights, and Mr. Lorry looked in vain for the fulfilment of Miss

Pross’s prediction.

Dinner-time, and still no Hundreds of people. In the
arrangements of the little household, Miss Pross took charge of the
lower regions, and always acquitted herself marvellously. Her
dinners, of a very modest quality, were so well cooked and so well
served, and so neat in their contrivances, half English and half
French, that nothing could be better. Miss Pross’s friendship
being of the thoroughly practical kind, she had ravaged Soho and
the adjacent provinces, in search of impoverished French, who,
tempted by shillings and half-crowns, would impart culinary
mysteries to her. From these decayed sons and daughters of Gaul,
she had acquired such wonderful arts, that the woman and girl
who formed the staff of domestics regarded her as quite a
Sorceress, or Cinderella’s Godmother: who would send out for a
fowl, a rabbit, a vegetable or two from the garden, and change
them into anything she pleased.

On Sundays, Miss Pross dined at the Doctor’s table, but on
other days persisted in taking her meals at unknown periods,
either in the lower regions, or in her own room on the second
floor—a blue chamber, to which no one but her Ladybird ever
gained admittance. On this occasion, Miss Pross, responding to
Ladybird’s pleasant face and pleasant efforts to please her, unbent
exceedingly; so the dinner was very pleasant, too.

It was an oppressive day, and, after dinner, Lucie proposed that
the wine should be carried out under the plane-tree, and they
should sit there in the air. As everything turned upon her, and
revolved about her, they went out under the plane-tree, and she
carried the wine down for the special benefit of Mr. Lorry. She
had installed herself, some time before, as Mr. Lorry’s cupbearer;

and while they sat under the plane-tree, talking, she kept his glass
replenished. Mysterious backs and ends of houses peeped at them
as they talked, and the plane-tree whispered to them in its own
way above their heads.

Still, the Hundreds of people did not present themselves. Mr.
Darnay presented himself while they were sitting under the plane-
tree, but he was only One.

Doctor Manette received him kindly, and so did Lucie. But Miss
Pross suddenly became afflicted with a twitching in the head and
body, and retired into the house. She was not unfrequently the
victim of this disorder, and she called it, in familiar conversation,
“a fit of the jerks.”

The Doctor was in his best condition, and looked specially
young. The resemblance between him and Lucie was very strong
at such times, and as they sat side by side, she leaning on his
shoulder, and he resting his arm on the back o
