the counting-house as eagerly as though Kipps had broken his neck.
`One of our chaps just been left sixty thousand pounds,' said the first apprentice, returning after a great absence to his customer.
`Unexpectedly?' said the customer.
`Quite,' said the first apprentice....
`I'm sure if Any One deserves it, it's Mr. Kipps,' said Miss Mergle; and her train rustled as she hurried to the counting-house.
There stood Kipps amidst a pelting shower of congratulations. His face was flushed, and his hair disordered. He still clutched his hat and best umbrella in his left hand. His right hand was any one's to shake rather than his own. (Ring-a-dinger, ring-a-dinger, ding, ding, ding, dang you ! went the neglected dinner-bell.)
`Good old Kipps !' said Pearce, shaking. `Good old Kipps!'

Kipps went downstairs to dinner, emitting fragmentary disconnected statements. `Never expected anything of the s0rt.... When this here old Bean told me, you could have knocked me down with a feather.... He says, "You ben lef' money." Even then I didn't expect it'd be mor'n a hundred pounds, perhaps. Something like that.'
With the sitting down to dinner and the handing of plates, the excitement assumed a more orderly quality. The housekeeper emitted congratulations as she carved,
