Сторінка 442 - that he was really frightened ? ' ' Nay, sir,' said Partridge, ' did not you yourself observe afterwards, when he found it was his own father's spirit, and how he was murdered in the garden, how his fear forsook him by degrees, and he was struck dumb with sorrow, as it were, just as I should have been, had it been my own case — But hush ! 0 la !

Сторінка 442 - To which Partridge replied with a smile, ' Persuade me to that, sir, if you can. Though I can't say I ever actually saw a ghost in my life, yet I am certain I should know one, if I saw him, better than that comes to. No, no, sir, ghosts don't appear in such dresses as that, ne1ther.
Сторінка xxviii - To think those greater who're above us ; Another instance of my glory, Who live above you, twice two story, And from my garret can look down On the whole street of Arlington.
