We have been at some trouble to inquire Our Mutual Friend book men who should know; watermen, who have lived on the river nigh all their lives, if they have seen late at night a dark boat with a solitary occupant, drifting down the river on the 'look out,' plying his frightful trade? Like the advertising people, I don't ask you to trust me, without offering a respectable reference. So with every lithe action of the girl, with every turn of her wrist, perhaps most of all with her look of dread or horror; they were things of usage. He meets Silas Wegg after having procured his amputated leg and he pretends to join Silas in blackmailing Mr Boffin regarding Harmon's will, while really informing Boffin of Silas's scheme. The very fire that warmed you when you were a baby, was picked out of the river alongside the coal barges.

But I am resolved to have the account of the man from Somewhere, and I beg you to elicit it for me, my love,' to Mrs Veneering, 'as I have lost my own influence.

Mr John Podsnap — a pompous man of the upper middle class, married to Mrs Podsnap and the Our Mutual Friend book of Georgiana, who is smug and jingoistic. Four pigeon-breasted retainers in plain clothes stand in line in the hall. After his death, two servants Noddy and Henrietta Boffin inherit the Bower estate. He provides a contrast with Mr Riah's gentleness, and underlines the point that "a Jew may be kindly and a Christian cruel". Reginald "Rumty" Wilfer — is Bella Wilfer's doting father, who is gentle, innocent, fatherly, and kindly, despite his querulous wife and daughter and thankless work as a clerk. The review by Henry James in The Nation described every character as "a mere bundle of eccentricities, animated by no principle of nature whatever", [55] and condemned Dickens for a lack of characters who represent "sound humanity".
