So Benham was able to convert the unfortunate Mrs. skelmersdale into a tender but for a long time an entirely painful memory.
They have the living of skelmersdale, I know; and I remember now that their nephew was to have had it.
Mrs. skelmersdale behaved beautifully and this made everything tormentingly touching and difficult.
"Frank might as well tell us he would not have skelmersdale," she said.
"skelmersdale," said I to myself at the sight of it, and went in.
So, unpropitiously, my acquaintance with Mr. skelmersdale began.
And by still obscurer processes this finger had become Mrs. skelmersdale.
And that is the tale of Mr. skelmersdale in Fairyland just as he told it to me.
And in that manner, and so suddenly, Mr. skelmersdale came out of Fairyland back into this world of men.
Recoiling from this, he was at once resumed by Mrs. skelmersdale.
