Seite 228 - As I say, I only wish I'd any money of my own. If there is anything that humbles a poor woman, it is coming to a man's pocket for every farthing. It's dreadful ! Now, Caudle, you shall hear me, for it isn't often I speak.
Seite 228 - As if you didn't know ! I'm sure, if I'd any money of my own, I'd never ask you for a farthing — never ! It's painful to me, gracious knows!
