Wiggins looked closely at the gaunt little scarecrow in threadbare workhouse clothes.

‘So, Henry, if you wants to join my gang you have to prove yourself worthy.’

The other assembled street arabs nudged each other and grinned knowingly. Little Henry looked balefully back and replied with challenging bravado, ‘Oh, yeah?’

‘See that toff, the one walking with the cane? You gotta steal his pocketwatch.’

‘Him! Why, he’s a cripple. It’ll be easy to knock him over!’

‘Any thug can mug someone; you gotta to pick his pocket. And you gotta do it without his beaky friend in the hat noticing.’

.oOOo.
