" Hollo!" said the little gentleman, "that's not the way to answer the door. I'm wet; let me in."
To do the little gentleman justice, he was wet. His feather hung down between his legs like a beaten puppy's tail, dripping like an umbrella; and from the ends of his mustaches the water was running into his waistcoat pockets and out again like a mill stream.
"I beg pardon, sir," said Gluck; "I'm very sorry, but I really can't."

Round he went to the door and opened it; and as the little gentleman walked in, there came a gust of wind through the house that made the old chimneys totter.
" That's a good boy," said the little gentleman. "Never mind your brothers. I'll talk to them."
" Pray, sir, don't do any such thing," said Gluck. "I
