From the text:

“They ain’t a-going to starve, are they?” said the gentleman from the boot-shop.

“Ah! you’d want to take a thing or two with you,” retorted “The Blue Posts,”“if you was a-going to cross the Atlantic in a small boat.”

“They ain’t a-going to cross the Atlantic,” struck in Biggs’s boy ; “they’re a-going to find Stanley.”

By this time, quite a small crowd had collected, and people were asking each other what was the matter. One party (the young and giddy portion of the crowd) held that it was a wed- ding, and pointed out Harris as the bridegroom; while the

elder and more thoughtful among the populace inclined to the idea that it was a funeral, and that I was probably the corpse’s brother."
