Colonel Crawley is wanted

William Makepeace Thackeray

Wood engraving

c.1861

Illustration for Chapter 52, Thackeray's Vanity Fair:

"Two persons separated from the crowd and followed the two gentlemen; and when they had walked down Gaunt Square a few score of paces, one of the men came up and touching Rawdon on a shoulder said, "Beg your pardon, Colonel, I vish to speak to you in most particular."

"That gallant officer at once knew what had befallen him. He was in the hands of the bailiffs."
