Christmas Eve in Scrooge’s Counting-house
At length the hour of shutting up the counting-house arrived. With an ill-will Scrooge dismounted from his stool, and tacitly admitted the fact to the expectant clerk in the Tank, who instantly snuffed his candle out, and put on his hat.
Dismounted his stool…that wants a drawing that isn’t simply getting off of a stool.
Or is it more this?
His thin feet in the air (and his coal safely in his bucket, not in the fire), Scrooge growls at his clerk,
“You’ll want all day to-morrow, I suppose?” said Scrooge.
“If quite convenient, sir.”
