'In an old abbey town, down in this part of the country, a long, long while ago so long, that the story must be a true one, because our great grandfathers implicitly believed it there officiated as sexton and grave digger in the churchyard, one Gabriel Grub. It by no means follows that because a man is a sexton, and constantly surrounded by the emblems of mortality, therefore he should be a morose and melancholy man; your undertakers are the merriest fellows in the world; and I once had the honour of being on intimate terms with a mute, who in private life, and off duty, was as comical and jocose a little fellow as ever chirped out a devil may care song, without a hitch in his memory, or drained off a good stiff glass without stopping for breath. But notwithstanding these precedents to the contrary, Gabriel Grub was an ill conditioned, cross grained, surly fellow a morose and lonely man, who consorted with nnody but himself, and an old wicker bottle which fitted into his large deep waistcoat pocket and who eyed each merry face, as it passed him by, with such a deep scowl of malice and ill humour, as it was difficult to meet without feeling something the worse for.'
