Tom Kitten was quite unable to jump when walking upon his hind
legs in trousers. He came up the rockery by degrees, breaking the
ferns, and shedding buttons right and left.
He was all in pieces when he reached the top of the wall.
Moppet and Mittens tried to pull him together; his hat fell off, and
the rest of his buttons burst.
