  There are relative and positive Snobs. I mean by positive, such person sas are Snobs everywhere, in all companies, from morning till night,from youth to the grave, being by Nature endowed with Snobbishness——an dothers who are Snobs only in certain circumstances and relations o flife.
  For instance:I once knew a man who committed before me an act a satrocious as that which I have indicated in the last chapter a sperformed by me for the purpose of disgusting Colonel Snobley;viz, th eusing the fork in the guise of a toothpick. I once, I say, knew a ma nwho, dining in my company at the'Europa Coffee-house,'(opposite th eGrand Opera, and, as everybody knows, the only decent place for dinin gat Naples,)ate peas with the assistance of his knife. He was a perso nwith whose society I was greatly pleased at first——indeed, we had met i nthe crater of Mount Vesuvius, and were subsequently robbed and held t oransom by brigands in Calabria, which is nothing to the purpose——a ma nof great powers, excellent heart, and varied information;but I ha dnever before seen him with a dish of pease, and his conduct in regard t othem caused me the deepest pain.
