The rest of the company, interested in the extent of our play, had abandoned their own cards, and were standing around us as spectators. Wilson's retaliations in kind were many, and there was one form of his practical wit that disturbed me beyond measure. Nor were the lower limbs less marvellously superb. Upon one occasion he saw this, I think, and afterwards avoided, or made a show of avoiding me.
