(101)

 I have a little hope in one place. If I succeed I will pay it to-day. If not, Sir, you must rectify the matter by breaking me to pieces, or beating me to dust.

 That can't be; borrow something here on the spot, and pay it.

 Do you, Sir, procure a merchant. I will bring the money, together with the exorbitant interest, in ten days.

 Where shall I go to procure a merchant? Bring it from wherever you can get it.

 If I had had so much credit, Sir, I would have brought it now.

 Fellow, you are a highwayman. If I am not very severe, you won't pay.

 You are sovereign. I am included in whatever you do. I am not a thief because I cultivate the ground.

Continuation.

 Who else is here? put this fellow in custody, and get the money.

 I am your tenant, Sir. If you abuse and drive me away, people will not settle on your estate.

 You make a piece of work about paying at every payment. It would be a good thing if such tenants would not stay.

 Very well, Sir. I will do so after this crop. Nobody can stay after they see your ill looks.

 Go, you fellow. If I have land, I shall have plenty of tenants.

Continuation.

 I shall see how many people you will settle on the land and house which you have let to me.

 Was there never any body in that farm before?
