"Don't you believe me, Mrs. Barton?" asked Herbert, distressed. "No, I don't. The man who brung you I dis-remember his name " "Willis Ford." "Well, Willis Ford, then! It seems you know his name. Well, he told me you was loony, and thought you was somebody else than your own self." "He told you that I was crazy?" ejaculated Herbert. "Yes; and I have no doubt it's so."
The supper being now laid, I fell at it and I dis-remember having ever enjoyed a meal more in my life. I sent Paddy and Jem to their quarters with food and a bottle of good wine to keep them company, and I think they deserved it, for they said the lotion the Doctor had put on the outside of them was stinging, so they thought there should be something in the inside to counteract the inconvenience.
