Rebecca makes acquaintance with a live Baronet
William Makepeace Thackeray
Illustration for to Chapter 6, Thackeray's Vanity Fair: "The bald-headed man, taking his hands out of his breeches pockets, advanced on this summons, and throwing Miss Sharp's trunk over his shoulder, carried it into the house."
"Take this basket and shawl, if you please, and open the door," said Miss Sharp, and descended from the carriage in much indignation. "I shall write to Mr. Sedley, and inform him of your conduct," said she to the groom.
