He removed to his uncle's stately house in Baker street, and assimilated his life very much to that of the older money maker.

Nay, if some god should grant me to renew my childhood from my present age and once more to be crying in my cradle, I would firmly refuse; nor should I in truth be willing, after having, as it were, run the full course, to be recalled from the winning—crease to the barriers.
