SCENE v PART FIRST
The words of my Lord-Lieutenant was, whenever you see Kingsbere-Hill Beacon fired to the eastward, or Black'on to the westward, light up; and keep your second fire burning for two hours. Was that our documents or was it not ?
I don't gainsay it. And so I keep my eye on Kingsbere, because that's most likely o5 the two, says I.
That shows the curious depths of your ignorance. However, 111 have patience, and say on. Didst ever larn geography ?
YOUNGER MAN No. Nor no other corrupt practices.
Tcht-tcht!—Well, Til have patience, and put it to him in another form. Dost know the world is round —eh ? I warrant dostn't.
YOUNGER MAN I warrant I do!
How d'ye make that out, when th'st never been to school ?
I larned it at church, thank God.
