小说介绍

    Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that.
The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the
undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name
was good upon `Change, for anything he  chose to put his hand to.
     Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail.            
     Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what
there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined,
myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery  in the
trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors  is in the simile; and my
unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will
therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a
door-nail.                                             
     Scrooge knew he was dead? Of course he did. How could it be
otherwise? Scrooge and he were partners for I don't know how many years.
Scrooge was his sole executor, his sole administrator, his sole assign, his
sole residuary legatee, his sole friend, and sole mourner. And even
Scrooge was not so dreadfully  cut up by the sad event, but that he was
an excellent  man of business on the very day of the funeral, and
solemnised it with an undoubted bargain. The mention of Marley's funeral
brings me back to the point I started from. There is no doubt that Marley
was dead. This must be distinctly understood, or nothing wonderful can
come of the story I am going to relate. If we were not perfectly convinced
that Hamlet's Father died before the play began, there would be nothing
more remarkable in his taking a stroll at night, in an easterly wind, upon
his own ramparts,  than there would be in any other middle-aged
gentleman rashly turning out after dark in a breezy spot -- say Saint Paul's
Churchyard for instance --  literally to astonish his son's weak mind.
     Scrooge never painted out Old Marley's name. There it stood, years
afterwards, above the warehouse door: Scrooge and Marley. The firm was
known as Scrooge and Marley. Sometimes people new to the business
called Scrooge Scrooge, and sometimes Marley,  but he answered to both
