I suggest these things, as you must be aware, for your own sake and not for mine." "As for my own, I don't care twopence: I do it all for you. I don't even ask whether there is anything between you and him." "Would you like to know?" said Lydia, deliberately, after a pause of astonishment. "Do you mean to say you'll tell me?" he exclaimed. "If you do, I'll say you're as good as gold."

In those countries you may buy for a penny as much fruit as you can carry, and get as much wine as you can drink for twopence, while all sorts of other good things are very cheap; and the weather is almost always like summer.

At an age when he ought to have been learning his letters, he was bird's-nesting in the fields or running errands to the Wylam shops; and as soon as he was old enough to earn a few pence by light work, he was set to tend cows at the magnificent wages of twopence a day, in the village of Dewley Burn, close by, to which his father had then removed.

Perhaps it is a distorted tradition of those dark ages. Perhaps Alfred, with the superior science of comparative civilization, had calculated the economics of Denmark down to a halfpenny. Perhaps a Dane sometimes came with twopence, sometimes even with twopence-halfpenny, after the sack of many cities even with twopence three farthings; but never with threepence.

"Not if you went down on your bended knees," ses the old man. "Very good," says Peter, getting up and walking outside; "then come along o' me to find a police-man." "I'm agreeable," ses Isaac, "but I've got the paper you signed."

And, if the author attacketh a man on the highway, and taketh but twopence, he shall be sent to the gallows, more terrible to him than the devil, for his contempt of the law, &c. Therefore he need not complain of being sent to hell. Mr. Leslie may carry things too far, as it is natural, because the other extreme is so great.

I think I love you with all my heart. Won't you change your mind? I was looking forward to this evening so awfully. You see, he hasn't come, and he can't care twopence about you really. Won't you dine with me? I'll get some more tickets, and we'll go anywhere you like." "I tell you I won't. It's no good you talking. I've made up my mind, and when I make up my mind I keep to it."

Such tempting heaps of lumps of white sugar, only twopence! Such delectable cakes, two for a penny! Such seductive scraps of meat, which would make a breakfast nourishing as well as relishing, possibly even what called itself a dinner, blushing to see themselves labelled threepence or fourpence!

"They get no price for their produce, no reasonable wages for their industry. Their patience and contentment are surprising, considering their circumstances. You can get work done for twopence a day. The Southerners get thrice the money for their farm produce. We have no ready means of getting things on the market.

A heresy had crept into a bit of late news not inspected by them, and they declared that the paper was not worth twopence and had better be stopped.
