12 askew his peaked cap and
32 hobbles off mutely. The crone makes
13 back for her lair, swaying her

15 clutches her skirt,
35 scrambles up. A drunken navvy grips with both
16 hands the railings

38 plate crashes: a woman screams: a child
19 wails. Oaths of a man

20 peer from warrens. In a
40 room lit by a candle stuck in a bottleneck a
