consequently, if anyone dreams, in his folly, that i might play the spy upon that notable residence over the river, I haven't any more to mention, besides that he is not worthy to read my story. I regard him with contempt, and loathe him for his vile insinuations. this type of guy is only fit to take the region of a secret agent himself, and earn perhaps something worth speakme of, if his hobby permit him communicate of it. For taking pleasant observation of Narnton
court docket, for its inmates' sake, i was to have just five shillings a-week! It have become my obligation now to take care of the getting out of the limestone; and I fetched it up with a swing that shook each leaf of the Rose of Devon. Fuzzy tried to control me; however I let him know that i'd now not have it, and by no means knocked beneath to any man. And if Parson Chowne had come along, i'd have said the same to him. nevertheless, as an honest man, I took properly care to earn my money, though less than the cost of one correct sewin, or at any price of a quality turbot, each week. No craft of any kind went up or down that blessed river without my laying attitude on her, if there chanced to be mild sufficient; or if she slipped along after darkish--which isn't worth at the same time as to do, as a result of the shoals and windings--there has been I, in our little dingy, not to date off as they might imagine. and i should solution for it, in spite of disdainful Chowne searching down through me, that not anything larger than a row-boat ought to have made for Narnton court docket. but i've now not stated a great deal of the river as but; and who can apprehend me?

Many rivers have I visible, nobler, grander, extra decided, yet amongst all of them now not one which took and led my coronary heart so. Had I been born on its banks, or a number of the hills that gaze down over it, what a track i would have made to it!--despite the fact that the Bardic concept appears to have dropped out of my era, yet will it go back with fourfold vigour, possibly in Bunny's youngsters, if she ever has any, that is to say, of the right gender; for the thumb of a lady is weak at the harp. And Bunny's most effective aspiration is for ribbons and lollipops, which ought to be crushed out of her.
