There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep, and the other two were using it as a cushion, resting their elbows on it, and talking over its head. " Very uncomfortable for the Dormouse," thought Alice ; " only as it's asleep, I suppose it doesn't mind."
The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it. " No room ! No room !" they cried out when they saw Alice coming. " There's plenty of room ! " said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair at one end of the table.
" Have some wine," the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.
Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. " I don't see any wine," she remarked.
"There isn't any," said the March Hare.
" Then it wasn't very civil of you to offer it," said Alice angrily.
" It wasn't very civil of you to sit down without being invited," said the March Hare.
" I didn't know it was your table," said Alice : " it's laid for a great many more than three."
" Your hair wants cutting," said the Hatter. He had been looking at Alice for some time with great curiosity, and this was his first speech.
" You should learn not to make personal remarks," Alice said with some severity : "it's very rude,."
