I must fix my files quickly or my fortunate to be playing some tricks with me if at all. I'll tell them what we will do.
We will pursue this. Our daughter or a cheat is family to play in town but the rest of they have had an actual business it. If that I am your valet to show my success attending day are broths and all of my. I'm not again. Proud slip and when she wrote space is distressed Well that's already been drawn with respect or Lookingglass it's almost too painful. And it's time for the mistress to come down and look after her family. Really don't be an owl. Those that go to bed at night may rise in the morning when they go to bed in the morning rise in the afternoon. When did she make her visits her by candlelight it helps if the complection inquisitive sunshine. But you know that my lady is going to has it. She is thought of a project to save her life as how why the company she used to keep
abroad she now intends she'll meet here at her own house. Your master advised her to set up a card table. If he advised it to it it's right she acquainted her husband with what to do when the company made them. That's true as you say you'll know soon enough. Well I must be gone. Have you any business with my lady. Yes as ambassador. From my out of the house next door I have a letter for her give it me I'd give you that myself. But as first minister of state to the Colonel I have an affair to communicate to the what is it quick. Why it doesn't jive with what a woman and a mummy together. Who is she. His youngest daughter. What would he be at if she said Lucia. Which way honourably has ordered me to demand of the marriage with me. Why when a man of quality has a mind to a city fortune was to have him apply to a father and mother. No except I think so. But you sit this letter into a prayer book for the pantomime queen. It's a very passionate wanting to see
you with an arm and a dagger. I see by that what he intends to do with himself are there any verses in it if not I won't touch one word in prose it's like you didn't rhyme. I'll take it. What if you brought nothing else. Forgive me I forget foolish dog. I have a letter for you too. Here it is in a purse. But it's in prose you might touch it and it's not good to be too dainty. Well if we find time we should have an altar tomorrow shortly. I can't promise you that for our young gentlewoman is not so well in my way as she would be. Father let us seldom converse with a stepmother in me that she should be as of a woman of quality. But I'll take the first occasion. Yes my lady now you might leave your letter to no messages this morning. Now the best grounds. Good afternoon my. I did not see the US. You to bring only a letter from your friend. Now I'll get it. Oh put it for me. I'm so lazy
today. But it needs no help. Your ladyship has no further commands. Not at this time on he's proud of your servant. And. That. I have something to impart to you. Close the door. My husband is in line with my friend that I mean possible. This letter from her is to give me an account of it. Me thinks you are not very much a lot. No no I'm not much tortured with jealousy. They are much in their right on that if the jealousy is a city passion is a thing unknown amongst people of color. A woman might indeed be of a mechanic mode who is either troubled or pleased with anything Osburn can do. Or they mention him no more to the dallies to see his splenetic indeed. But when once you open your card table I hope that will put him right out of your head. Last al-Bandar I began to grow weary even of the thoughts of that so you can still be out of humour as I have but too much
cool. Have Waterview to complain about but is it not a most horrible thing that I should be but a scriveners wife. Don't flatter me or don't you think nature designed me. Something clues that if they wanted to be mistress right. Hey that's me. But on the other side Methinks you ought to be in some measure of content since you live like a woman of quality to beauty and a poor husband can caromed. And that's a good portion for one. Pray consider how you get some ready money to set your car table or go in for that's necessary I say is true. But one trick I shall play my husband to get some money I don't know who my pretence of losing my diamond necklace is what the man into such passion. I'm afraid he won't hear reason. Matter. He begins to think he's lost in earnest so I fancy you may venture to sign it and raise money that way. That can't be for he has left odious notes with all the gold Smiths in town. Well we must pawn it then. Oh I'm quite tired of dealing with those pawnbroker.
I'm afraid you continue to try a great while for all that. Oh yes if a man isn't now about to do so pinch some purchase on bonuses false teeth and all sorts of things to the ladies. I can't think of a name disestablished she wants money. When I had myself. It's an unreasonable thing you don't think I have any for her. She gets up with some old people that come and done a fixture in age as a man. What would you do with a knife just now if you don't keep on. She is very rich that woman is. I'll borrow some money of your own Sure. You just know I am in earnest. I give the commission to do it for me. May you write it out. So I'm game. Don't I speak to be understood.

an asshole forever that I'd rather observe that I do and think you'll be in the right. But probably by just giving advice to the armies of fear it should go round to your wife's figure. No there is no danger. My wife she knows I'm none of those husbands. Are you sure she knows that. I'm sure you ought to know it and ever really I have but for folks in the world when what might they be. Why I'm a little slovenly I shift but once a week. For sometimes out of human provoking.

You see you have got an extravagant wife is it not so for the change with that word fancy and it is so extravagant in the world she is not guilty on a man extravagance in the world she is guilty of bad just don't spend more money in coach than Chehab and would maintain six children.

Town like. So those stars have done. It all to win. And what will we do for them no we are grateful creatures. And we don't despise the most fortunate thing that ever could have happened. Last night's idea as to what trifles to some idea will be useful to us at your service might have be necessary
in my life she waits your commands met. For my part I recommend my husband money trap to the top. I make it my earnest request. I will give him one half crown. I'll do all I can to have you.

That's my said. Very well ladies give me leave to put you in mind of some little expense in favors twill be necessary you write to these honest gentlemen favors some small matters Madam I doubt must be
that of an article at home and for that thing your husband is so my mother. There is a scruple Indeed. Pray Madam do so squeamish in your hand. Why what in the name of Lucifer is it you have to do that so terrible sick look only is no great harm. That lodging that one may afford a little smile.

I doubt twill be necessary to get their wretched money without paying so dear for it. So get to work man as fast as thou canst. But not a word of all this. I the observe my own. I have the pleasure of telling myself here my own. To light. The candles the. Best man in the world. He'll bring us back company to morrow while gaming table all sorts of games. Now see my husband will be such a beast to be out of Hillmer at the
moment. Hush. Here's my dear husband approaching up the street. Prithee let's leave him to look. Oh pray do bring your good account of him. I'll warrant despatch then for the card tables in haste. Them now have three columns you know try we can pillage the area as he does other folks done area myself in my back garden and returned to us the mysteries come home. Yes. Where is she breathing going within. One has to have a little something to her chikin expiring love said. So I have said how much good my. Well and how and how and how do you think you'd have me do it. Well you have such a way with it one can refuse. I brought myself into a fine business by a good black widow but I hope so much when I'm turned out of doors in terrible angry. You see how
she flew when she saw where I was pointing. Must know our way around the bush around the bush before I came to the is a ticklish point. That must be my word is that meeting with the ladies. Souly that she was for that case you must know very dangerous case indeed. I can tell you one thing she has an inclination to watch. Yes. And I told her so at last. What did Gianni's slack and bid me bring it to you for a token. That's nice.

good you know I pretty you see why when women are in difficulties how can they think of pleasure. Why. What difficulties can she win. Oh I do but I guess after all she has that grand soul. She'd die before she'd tell her. What deserves respect. What should one suspect what a husband loves nothing but the getting of money and a wife nothing but spending on it. She wants that same.
