Excerpt from Hagar of the Pawn-Shop

This particular friend was a solicitor named Vark, who carried on a shady business, in a shady manner, for shady clients. His name - as he declared himself - proved him to be of Polish descent; but it was commonly reported in the neighborhood that Vark was made to rhyme with shark, as emblematic of the estimation in which he was held. He was hated only one degree less than Jacob, and the two, - connected pri marily as lawyer and client, - 1ater on, had struck up a mistrustful friendship by reason of their mutual reputation and isolation. Neither one believed in the other each tried to swindle on his own account, and never succeeded yet the two met nightly and talked over their divers ras calities in the dingy parlor, with a confidence begotten by an intimate knowledge of each other's character. The reputations of both were so bad that the one did not dare to betray the other. Only on this basis is honor possible among thieves.
