Sir, if I run away, where shall I go? This is the house where our bones have been buried for seven generations.
I lie at your feet, Sir. Do what you please.
How much do you still owe of this year's rent?
Sir, say no more about that. I can't pay half my rent.
Then what is to be done?
I get nothing by thinking about that. I'll pay it by some contrivance: by letting the land to some other person, who will pay rent and find seed; and we will divide the produce.
The king's taxes must be paid. That can suffer no obstruction. What do you think about that?
Sir, this year's rent must be forgiven. I am fallen into great poverty.
Stop, all these things now. What have you done for this payment?
I cannot pay my rent.
A peon [bailiff] must be set over you for the rent, otherwise you will not pay it.
I am not able, Sir, to pay my rent: where should I get the daily allowance to a peon.
The taxes must be paid in on the tenth of the month. Go and make your money sure.
If you will wait five or six days, Sir, my brother will come home.
Where is your brother gone?
