 Very well, that I will do; plenty of these seeds may be obtained. But will you not sow gourds, cucumbers, kidney beans, or any such thing?

 I will sow them; but their runners spread so far, where can we get room for them?

 Don't trouble yourself about that, there is plenty of room. I will make a stage here for them.

 What's the reason the garden is so foul? Why don't you weed these beds?

 Sir, there is a great deal of work. We are constantly so employed in planting the fruit trees, that I have no leisure; that's the reason it is so foul.

 What sort of trees have you planted?

 Mangoe, jack, kamrunga, peach, mulberry, limes, shaddock, korinda, phulsa, almond, custard-apples, both the netted and the plain, guaya trees, and how many gundas of flower trees?

 Take good care of all. Weed this. I cannot bear to see so many weeds.


THE DISCOURSE OF RESPECTABLE OLD PEOPLE.

 Ho! say whence came you?

 From Calcutta to-day.

 When from home?

 I came from home about fifteen days ago.

 Where have you been so long?

 All this time on the road. I staid about eight or ten days at Hoogly.

 Truly! therefore you was so long.
