Oh, I know, I know, I know. Poor Mr Marner is sympathetic in every respect and Auntie is a beewurd in every one. I meant the comparison in that one tiny, narrow respect, that miserliness can become a way of life (not even always the same way of life.) Maybe I should have used Scrouge. No, don't tell me -- you're a Scrouge apologist too. ["Drag out the Dickens."] Or old Mrs Clennam.
