I can't be sure if your paragraph 6 matches mine. There are literally hundreds of publications of this story. If you quote the first line of the paragraph, I can find it.

"Oh! But he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner! Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster."
