Excerpt from The Fortunes of Oliver Horn
To one and all inquiries for Mr. Horn his an swer during the morning hours was invariably the same, Yes, sah, Marse Richard 's in his li'l room wrastlin' wid his machine, I reckon. He '5 in dar now, sah, this with another low bow, and then slowly recovering his perpendicular with eyes fixed on the retreating figure, SO as to be sure there was no further need of his ser vices, he would resume his work, drenching the steps again with soap-suds or rubbing away on the door-plate or door-pull, stopping every other moment to blow his breath on the polished sur face.
