Lemuel heard their laugh, and he knew they were laughing at him; but he did not care.

I wisht 'Manda and Rebecca knowed such manners. THEY're to be your scholars this winter." "Indeed?" said Fairchilds; "are they?" "'Manda there," said her father, "she's so much fur actin' up you'll have to keep her right by you to keep her straight, still."
