Wemmick went into the Aged's room with a clean white cloth, and tied the same under the old gentleman's chin, and put his nightcap on one side, and gave him quite a rakish air. Then he placed his breakfast before him, and said, "All right, ain't you, Aged P.?" To which the cheerful Aged replied, "All right, John, my boy, all right!" — p. 350.
