Is There Aught That I Can Grant Him Within The Pashalik Of Karagholookoldour?

Dragoman (growing, sulky and literal).

- This friendly Englishman - this branch of Mudcombe - this head-purveyor of Goldborough - this possible policeman of Bedfordshire, is recounting his achievements, and the number of his titles.

Pasha. - The end of his honours is more distant than the ends of the earth, and the catalogue of his glorious deeds is brighter than the firmament of heaven!

Dragoman (to the traveller). - The Pasha congratulates your Excellency.

Traveller. - About Goldborough? The deuce he does! - but I want to get at his views in relation to the present state of the Ottoman Empire. Tell him the Houses of Parliament have met, and that there has been a speech from the throne, pledging England to preserve the integrity of the Sultan's dominions.

Dragoman (to the Pasha). - This branch of Mudcombe, this possible policeman of Bedfordshire, informs your Highness that in England the talking houses have met, and that the integrity of the Sultan's dominions has been assured for ever and ever by a speech from the velvet chair.

Pasha. - Wonderful chair! Wonderful houses! - whirr! whirr! all by wheels! - whiz! whiz! all by steam! - wonderful chair! wonderful houses! wonderful people! - whirr! whirr! all by wheels! - whiz! whiz! all by steam!

Traveller (to the dragoman). - What does the Pasha mean by that whizzing? he does not mean to say, does he, that our Government will ever abandon their pledges to the Sultan?

Dragoman. - No, your Excellency; but he says the English talk by wheels, and by steam.
