References in classic literature ?
'I thought you would know the name if you were a pal of Gates's.
You go away for a bit and come back and try to find your old pals, and they're all gone: Ike's in Arizona, Mike's in a sanatorium, Spike's in jail, and nobody seems to know where the rest of them have got to.
Well, I was trying to think of some of my pals who might still be around the place, and I remembered Gates.
"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.
So I got the false whiskers and the goggles and this countrified suit of clothes, and fetched them along back in a hand-bag; and when I was passing a shop where they sell all sorts of things, I got a glimpse of one of my pals through the window.
'E and the King of Denmark would have been great pals. He just sat by with his big blue eyes getting rounder every minute and lapped it up.
His pals are beginning to cut him; our difficulty is to keep the pal from the door.
"I don't believe you ever before had such pals to desert," was my reply to that.
"Yes; and he tops up with no end of dinner there," I went on, "to his hunting pals and the bloods who ride for him.
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.
