Illustration for for Chapter 20, Thackeray's Vanity Fair

"Mr. Dobbin went to seek John Sedley at his house of call in the City, the Tapioca Coffee-house, where, since his own offices were shut up, and fate had overtaken him, the poor broken-down old gentleman used to betake himself daily, and write letters and received them, and tie them up into mysterious bundle, several of which he carried in the flaps of his coat."
