Polly was beset by so many misgivings in the morning, that but
for the incessant promptings of her black-eyed companion, she
would have abandoned all thoughts of the expedition, and formally
petitioned for leave to see number one hundred and forty-seven,
under the awful shaddow of Mr. Dombey's roof. But Susan who was
personally disposed in favour of the excursion, and who (like
Tony Lumpkin), if she could bare the disappointments of other
people with tolerable fortitude, could not abide to disappoint
herself, threw so many ingenious doubts in the way of this second
thought, and stimulated the original intention with so many
ingenious arguments, that almost as soon as Mr. Dombey's stately
back was turned, and that gentleman was pursuing his daily road

The first shock of a great earthquake had, just at that period,
rent the whole neighbourhood to its centre. Traces of its course
were visible on every side. Houses were knocked down; streets
broken through and stopped; deep pits and trenches dug in the
ground; enormous heaps of earth and clay thrown up; buildings
that were undermined and shaking, propped by great beams of wood.
Here, a chaos of carts, overthrown and jumbled together, lay
topsy-turvy at the bottom of a steep unnatural hill; there,
confused treasures of iron soaked and rusted in something that
had become a pond.
Suddenly it was the month of June, which preceded a rainy July.
The juniper berries were not going to be ready in time.
