--A hairdresser's shop at night--not a dashing one, but a barber's.  Morleena Kenwig[s] on a tall chair having her hair dressed by an underbred attendant with his hair parted down the middle, and frizzed up into curls at the sides.  Another customer, who is being shaved, has just turned his head in the direction of Miss Kenwigs, and she and Newman Noggs (who has brought her there, and has been whiling away the time with an old newspaper), recognise, with manifestations of surprise, and Morleena with emotion, Mr. Lillyvick, the collector.  Mr. Lillyvick's bristly beard expresses great neglect of his person, and he looks very grim and in the utmost despondency.--
