"Slightly; and deposed that he had been spending the night with Eugene Aram; that on leaving Aram's house, he met Clarke, and wondering that he the latter, an invalid, should be out at so late an hour, he walked some way with him, in order to learn the cause; but that Clarke seemed confused, and was reserved, and on his guard, and at last wished him good-b'ye abruptly, and turned away.

'I heard the doctor tell them I was dying, replied the child with a faint smile. 'I am very glad to see you, dear; but don't stop, don't stop! 'Yes, yes, I will, to say good-b'ye to you, replied Oliver. 'I shall see you again, Dick. I know I shall! You will be well and happy! 'I hope so, replied the child. 'After I am dead, but not before.

"If I get free, I'll have a bout with you at all weapons. If not, I'll take a cheerful glass with you at the City of Oxford, on my way to Tyburn." "Give you the best I have in either case," replied Figg. "Good-b'ye!" And with a cordial shake of the hand he took his departure. Sir James Thornhill, then, rose. "I won't trouble you further, Jack," he remarked.

'Good-b'ye one, good-b'ye all! cried Mark, waving his hat on the top of his walking-stick, as he strode at a quick pace up the little street. 'Hearty chaps them wheelwrights hurrah! Here's the butcher's dog a-coming out of the garden down, old fellow! And Mr Pinch a-going to his organ good-b'ye, sir! And the terrier-bitch from over the way hie, then, lass!

But he afterwards acted upon the suggestion. "Good-b'ye, Jack," said Figg, putting on his hat. "Rather in the way. Send you the shirt. Here, turnkey.

"I tell 'ee what, landlord," observed the old sailor, quietly replenishing his pipe from a huge pewter tobacco-box, as the waterman and Wood quitted the house, "you've said good-b'ye to your friend."

And children enough to hand down human natur to the latest posterity good-b'ye, boys and girls! There's some credit in it now. I'm a-coming out strong at last.
