THE RAW MATERIALS

All right. He will admit he has a few ounces of weight to lose. The Shorrocks eat well. You could not get Jack Shorrock's Agatha's potato-pie for ten shillings a portion at the Savoy Hotel, London-no, nor even at the Rockbottom Commercial Hotel. And he will say that, though careful with the brass, he begrudges nothing when it comes to food.
He knows what it is to go without. He doesn't mind admitting that he worked in the Mill. He saw Boom and Slump; knew Cotton as King and as Beggar. A man must not be ashamed of anything in the way of honest work. When circumstances demanded it, he got a job labouring, and happy to get it. The whole point is, the children ate, had shoes, and never had a day's illness. That's little enough to brag about, but at the same time it's something, he reckons. Well, gentlemen, he got together a pound here and a pound there, by going without everything except potatoes and sleep. He likes his grub but can go without it. He took a little shop, starting with a few packets of stuff on tick. Now he owes no man a farthing. It is a good business. It took him five years to make it what it is. He had a vast scheme for a mail-order business, a fair and square one on new lines, which, in another five years, might make Shorrock as big as Sainsbuly. He hasn't the slightest doubt that Agatha, though the finest lass in the world, will ruin everything. Well ... happen she will, happen she won't. He'll still have his own two hands
-that is to say, given reasonable luck. He reckons that very few men lose both hands.... He sits, pink and stubborn, like a skinned bulldog.
