References in classic literature ?
Well, I was trying to think of some of my pals who might still be around the place, and I remembered Gates.
You see, it's this way: I'm giving supper to-night to a girl who's in that show at the Forty-ninth Street Theatre, a Miss Leonard, and she insists on bringing a pal. She says the pal is a good sport, which sounds all right--' Bill admitted that it sounded all right.
'I thought you would know the name if you were a pal of Gates's.
I seen our other pal lay in HIS stock of old rusty second-handers.
Gentleman kind of gives a whoop, and hollers, "If it ain't my old pal, Jerry Moore!
"I don't believe you ever before had such pals to desert," was my reply to that.
But it is pretty certain to be a lively night for him and his pals - and a vulnerable one for the best bedroom!"
His horses were by chalks the best there, and his pals rode them like the foul fiend, but with the worst of luck every time.
I did my best to get out of it--swore I had a pal who was a real swell--but I saw very plainly that I had given myself away.
"Meantime we followed my sea-chest which was being carried down a sort of deep narrow lane, separating two high warehouses, between honest Ted and his little devil of a pal who had to keep up a trot to the other's stride.
Thereupon he lost all interest in me, humorous or otherwise, and walked away driving sternly before him the honest Ted, who went off grumbling to himself like a hungry ogre, and his horrible dumb little pal in the soldier's coat, who, from first to last, never emitted the slightest sound.
Matey's only a pal. I'm fond of Matey--all the fonder on account of the spice of devilment that's in him--like there is in all cats.
