Стр. 44 - Once upon a time there were three little sisters,' the Dormouse began in a great hurry; 'and their names were Elsie, Lacie, and Tillie; and they lived at the bottom of a well — ' 'What did they live on?' said Alice, who always took a great interest in questions of eating and drinking. 'They lived on treacle,' said the Dormouse, after thinking a minute or two.
Стр. 42 - Dormouse is asleep again," said the Hatter, and he poured a little hot tea upon its nose. The Dormouse shook its head impatiently, and said, without opening its eyes.

Стр. x - This very plaintive story, Of Clara's trip to Blunderland, Of creatures bold and boery; And clothe in garb of fantasy Prosaic Whig and Tory. A sense of Duty urged us first To "hurry and begin it. " Fatuity then whispered low, "It won't take half a minute!" We laughed to scorn the bare idea That there was money in it.
