The Children of Old Park's Tavern : A Story of the South Shore (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Children of Old Park's Tavern: A Story of the South Shore Oh, come now, Thankful, you'll like it yourself next week - see 'f you. Don't! 'n won't you be spry! Replied Ned. Thereat Thankful said she hoped she knowed her duty, which meant that she should do her best, if 'twas a Whig convention. For Thankful was a Democrat, and the next week the Democrats would hold their convention in the meeting-house at Byfield, and would dine at the tavern. As to the Whig coachman, she was barely civil when he came into the kitchen to bring a hamper of turkeys he had fetched from Boston, and she sniffed Scorn fully when Ned called her attention to the berib boned horses.
