Well, most of the human race. Not Mr Slope, obviously.
His face is nearly of the same colour as his hair, though perhaps a little redder: it is not unlike beef, - beef, one would say, however, of a bad quality...
I could never endure to shake hands with Mr Slope. A cold, clammy perspiration always exudes from him, the small drops are ever to be seen on his brow, and his friendly grasp is unpleasant.
Was ever a fictional character more fascinatingly awful than Mr Slope?

If there is, I'd love to have the chance of observing him -
- but only, naturally, from a very great distance.
