Buller. I Know there is nothing yon dislike so much as personal observations

NORTH.

On myself to myself—not at all on others.

BULLER.

Yet I cannot hdp telling you to your face, sir, that you are one of the finest -looking old men

NORTH.

Elderly gentlemen, if you please, sir.

BULLER.

In Britain, in Europe, in the World. I am perfectly serious, sir. You are.

NORTH.

You needed not to say you were perfectly serious; for I suffer no man to be ironical on Me, Mr Buller. I am.

BULLER.

NORTn.

Buller has such a blunt way with him that he often makes me blush. I was not shocked, my dear sir, but I was affected.

BULLER.
