Son pocas las personas de Bath que yo no conozca. Lo encontraba frecuentemente en Bedford, y hoy reconocí su cara nada más que entró en el salón de billar. Uno de los mejores jugadores que tenemos, por cierto, y hemos jugado alguna partida juntos, aunque al principio casi le tenía miedo. Jugábamos a cinco por cuatro en mi contra, y si no llego a hacer la carambola más limpia que jamás haya hecho en el mundo… le di a su bola con toda precisión… pero  no puedo hacérselo comprender sin una mesa. En cualquier caso, le gané.

V.O.

There are few people much about town that I do not know. I have met him forever at the Bedford; and I knew his face again today the moment he came into the billiard-room. One of the best players we have, by the by; and we had a little touch together, though I was almost afraid of him at first: the odds were five to four against me; and, if I had not made one of the cleanest strokes that perhaps ever was made in this world—I took his ball exactly—but I could not make you understand it without a table; however, I did beat him.
