"What do you want, Charley?" "Please will your grandfather lend us his fuel-house to try over our parts in, tonight at seven o'clock?" "What, are you one of the Egdon mummers for this year?" "Yes, miss. The cap'n used to let the old mummers practise here." "I know it. Yes, you may use the fuel-house if you like," said Eustacia languidly.

Sah-luma laughed languidly, a faint color warming the clear olive pallor of his complexion. "Aye, poor tender little soul, she loves me,".. he said carelessly "That is no secret! But then all women love me, I am more like to die of a surfeit of love than of anything else" He moved towards the open window "Come!
