Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: ...your promising and not performing and your whimpering; but now I've got the opposite of all this. I have found a man who pays and does n't cry about it. Make way for your betters. An. But, by heaven, if I remember rightly, there was a day set on which you were to pay him? Ph. There was. Do. I don't deny it, do I? An. Has it come yet? Do. No, but to-day has come in ahead of it. An. Are n't you ashamed to be such a fraud? Do. Not a bit if it is for my gain. Ge. Oh, you dunghill! Ph. Look here, Dorio, is this the right way to behave?
