Better lie down on my parlor sofy a while and git rested up nice, hadn't ye? many's the day I've lazied there, Lord knows, tryin' f'r to coddle my strength back." Varney regretfully declined the offer. In fact, he must be going at once, he said, as he had a rather important business engagement; and would Mr. Hackley kindly show him the quiet back-exit to the street and the outer world?

I've lolled and lazied and languished. And I've never been so tired in my life not even when we were taking January inventory. Another month of this, and I'd be an old, old woman.

We went a-fishing again in the early dawn, and then lazied around all day in the deep shade on an island, taking turn about to watch and see that none of the animals come a-snooping around there after erronorts for dinner. We was going to leave the next day, but couldn't, it was too lovely.

I was in the merriest humour, and lazied about the whole afternoon through the most frequented streets and looked at the people.

I went about the whole time in a state of tremulous, delicious dread. What would happen?

"I never lazied around so or frittered up so much time in my life; and I'm enjoying every second of my freedom, too. I tell you, it's fine. But say, this meeting won't take over an hour. Why can't I come over right after lunch?" She was very sorry, this time a little less regretfully, that after luncheon she had an engagement with Mr. Princeman to play a match game of croquet.
