Why, you may tell she is mad by her talk and her ways. Maybe she鈥檒l fatten him up and eat him; or perhaps she鈥檒l turn him into a Papist or a Frenchman.

I tried as I walked to the house to get up a little German; but, O Laura, the Urdu had driven it almost all out of my head. If I wished to call up a German word, up would come an Urdu one!
