Young Le Fevre rose from off the bed, and saw me to the bottom of the stairs ; and as we went down together, told me they had come from Ireland, and were on their route to join the regiment in Flanders.

I fear so, replied my uncle Toby; but I am not at rest in my mind, Trim, since the account the landlord has given me.
