Vegetable marrows and cucumbers

K., rereading Nicholas Nickleby for the umpteenth time, has reached that part of the book (chapter 41: Containing some Romantic Passages between Mrs Nickleby and the Gentleman in the Small-clothes next Door") and enjoys reading it aloud, just as I enjoy hearing it. Courtesy of the library, this copy is the recent Everyman brought out here by Knopf, and based on the Oxford edition before it, with a G. K. Chesterton preface and all the original illustrations with captions.
