"Yes, even when it's hard going we still have to march on name of God, yes!" he repeated, and he looked at Carnac quizzically. "Where are you going? Don't you want to talk to me?" "I'm going home, m'sieu'. If you'll come with me I'll give you a drink of hard cider, the best was ever made." "I'll come. Denzil, I've never been in your little house. That's strange, when I've known you so many years."

"I think I could make it pay, sir." said Michael shutting his lips with that firm challenge of his. "I'd like to try."
