  • By a remarkable coincidence, the other two had been visited with the same unpleasant sensation at that precise moment.
  • However, Mr. Fagin seemed to interpret the endeavour as expressing a perfect coincidence with his opinion, and put about the liquor which Barney reappeared with, in a very friendly manner.
