Weller

(Sam). Pickwick's factotum. His wit, fidelity, archness, and wide-awakedness are inimitable. (Dickens Pickwick Papers.)

Tony Weller.
Father of Sam. Type of the old stage-coachman; portly in size, and dressed in a broad-brimmed hat, great-coat of many capes, and topboots. His stage-coach was his castle, and elsewhere he was as green as a sailor on terra firma. ( Dickens: Pickwick Papers.)
