‘Call the first witness,’ said the King; and the White Rabbit blew three blasts on the trumpet, and called out, ‘First witness!’

The first witness was the Hatter. He came in with a teacup in one hand and a piece of bread-and-butter in the other. ‘I beg pardon, your Majesty,’ he began, ‘for bringing these in: but I hadn’t quite finished my tea when I was sent for.’

The Mad Hatter here weats his famous top hat, with the price ticket on it, In this style 10/6. He also wears a large spotted bow tie, a jacket, chequered waistcoat and trousers, and striped socks. He appears to have human feet, and to have removed his shoes, which are near him on the floor. he carries a partly-eaten sandwich and a cup of tea.

All this time the Queen had never left off staring at the Hatter, and, just as the Dormouse crossed the court, she said to one of the officers of the court, ‘Bring me the list of the singers in the last concert!’ on which the wretched Hatter trembled so, that he shook both his shoes off.
