A Sad Occasion

Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

This is a variation of the Missing Word puzzle. Here, the first word is a single letter, in the second word another letter has been added, to the third word another letter has been added to the last two letters, and so on. The order of the letters can be changed, as in this example: O, ON, TON, NOTE, TONES, SONNET, TENDONS.

The number of letters in the missing words are indicated by *(S)

Good luck!

"No; * do not like **," said the man in a black *** on a sad occasion; "though the **** we have just witnessed was certainly impressive. If you ***** a man, you ****** a ******* power of reinvestigation; and there will be a ******** against ********* when the ********** of this is recognised."
