I am sure, if I had seen a ghost, I should have looked in the very same manner, and done just as he did. And then, to be sure, in that scene, as you called it, between him and his mother, where you told me he acted so fine: why, Lord help me, any man, that is, any good man, that had such a mother, would have done exactly the same. I know you are only joking with me; but indeed, madam, though I...

The fellow handles a spade as if it was the first time he had ever had one in his hand. Ay, ay, you may sing. You had rather sing than work, I believe.
Página 340 - Partridge sat in fearful expectation of this; and now, when the ghost made his next appearance Partridge cried out, ' There, sir, now ; what say you now ? is he frightened now or no 1 As much frightened as you think me, and, to be sure, nobody can help some fears.
