"'I must be at Tattersall's on Monday, uncle; there is a horse I must have for next season. Pray, uncle, may I ask when you are likely to want me? "'Let me see this is May about July, I should think. "'July, uncle! Spare me I cannot marry in the dog-days. No, hang it, not July.
But you see constancy isn't one of that noble Irishman's virtues. He loves and he rides away when the lady won't have him, bien entendu. No, Arion was sent up to Tattersall's, and disposed of in the usual way. Some fellow bought him for a covert hack." "I hope the man wasn't a heavy weight," exclaimed Vixen, almost in tears.

The steppers, hardly cool, were hurried straight off to his bankers', to be driven, after their owner's interview with one of the partners, back again to the great emporium of their kind at Tattersall's.

It is better that I should stay here and watch things at Tattersall's; then I can keep you informed how things are looking every day, and be ready to start as soon as I get your telegram.

Hannen said he could not have believed a cross-examination could be conducted in that manner without any knowledge of the facts, and paid me the compliment of saying it was worth at the least £80,000. Tattersall's in my time was one of the pleasantest Sunday afternoon lounges in London.
