Excerpt from Told at 'the Plume'
I wish I could blush, souls, for so many fine speeches I never heard to one time afore but I be past it, and 'i'll only thank you, and explain that you do me far too much credit every way. 'tis just a trick of the mind to keep my old friends, and go on making more.
Us all want to, said Farmer Jim Mumford, but how the plague can a man do it when it comes to suffering all the fools there bein Widecombe. 'tis offering cheese-cakes to a bullock to be friendly with 'em.
Now, funnily enough, Farmer Jim was three parts a fool hisself - a stubborn, obstinate sort of a fool, with a mind and ideas about equal to what a jackass - has.
