Pip in the Power of Dolge Orlick
7.3 x 4.7 inches
"'Wolf!' said Orlick, 'it was you as did for your shrew sister.' 'It was you, villain,' said I. 'I tell you how it was your doing,' he retorted, catching up the gun, and making a blow with the stock at the vacant air between us." [A condensed form of the text in Chapter 53 which achieves compression through excising a paragraph of narrative while retaining the dialogue.]
