Could you tell me please why the auther uses ''won't'' here in this sentence? Is it typical for literature only?
'I beg you won't mention it, sir.'
Isn't it a mistake to say ; I beg you not to mention it or I beg you don't mention it or I beg you not mention it too?
I don't think that it is wrong I was wondering why it is used here and how it can be rephrased too.
I have nothing against Dickens' grammar ;).
