'Pocket-handkerchiefs out, all!' cried Mr. Trabb, in a depressed business-like voice — 'We are ready!' We all put our handkerchiefs to our faces, and filed out two and two; Joe and I leading. [A slightly condensed form of the text in Chapter 35. The paragraph goes on to list the mourners and describe the procession; "leading" is Furniss's invention.]
