prevent

Posted Feb 01 2013 2:27am
I led him up the dark stairs, Links of London Letter Charms to prevent his knocking his head 
against anything, and really his damp cold hand felt so like a frog 
in mine, that I was tempted to drop it and run away. Agnes and 
hospitality prevailed, however, and I conducted him to my fireside. 
When I lighted my candles, he fell into meek transports with the 
room that was revealed to him; and when I heated the coffee in an 
unassuming block-tin vessel in which Mrs. Crupp delighted to 
prepare it (chiefly, I believe, because it was not intended for the 
purpose, being a shaving-pot, and because there was a patent 
invention of great price mouldering away in the pantry), he 
professed so much emotion, that I could joyfully have scalded him. 

‘Oh, really, Master Copperfield,—I mean Mister Copperfield,’ 
said Uriah, ‘to see you waiting upon me is what I never could have 
expected! But, one way and another, so many things happen to me 
which I never could have expected, I am sure, in my umble station, 
that it seems to rain blessings on my ed. You have heard 
something, I des-say, of a change in my expectations, Master 
Copperfield,—I should say, Mister Copperfield?’
