"A thousand dollars a month seems an awful lot of money to me," she said. "It's nothing nothing to what we'll soon have. Trust me." And back into his eyes flashed their former look. "I've been sick. I'm well again. I shall get what I want. If you want anything, you've only to ask for it. I'll get it. I know how. . . . I don't prey, myself I've no fancy for the brutal sports.

It'd almost break my heart to be shut off from connection with my mates in athletic sports, because I'm crazy about such things, you know; it's in the blood, I guess."

The kings, and other rich men, drink mares milk, while the poor people and slaves use only mead . They have many contests among themselves; and the people of Estum brew no ale, as they have mead in profusion . There is also a particular custom observed by this nation; that, when any one dies, the body remains unburnt, with the relations and friends, for a month or two; and the bodies of kings and nobles remain longer, according to their respective wealth, sometimes for half a year, during all which time it is kept in the house, and drinking and sports continue until the body is consumed .
