Dickens, C. (n.d.). The Cricket on the Hearth. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Chapter 1. Chirp the First. The kettle began it! Don?t tell me what Mrs. Peerybingle said. I know better. Mrs. Peerybingle may leave it on record to the end of time that she couldn?t say which of them began it; but, I say the kettle did. I ought to know, I hope! The kettle began it, full five minutes by the little waxy faced Dutch clock in the corner, before the Cricket uttered a chirp.
