: : Miz Crone,
: : Ma'am, I will be entertainin' a friend this evenin' and won't be 'round to give ole Dobbin his nightmare potion. If you c'ld boil up that licorice, garlic, and anise seed in 20 parts o' water fer 15 minutes and dose 'im, I promise to work extry hours nex' week.
: : Also, I'll finish daubin' the wattle on yer hut tomorrow.
: : Thankee,
: : Jeroboam Jones
: Slackard! I'll have the sheriff haul ya off. Better yet I'll sell the last five yars of your indenture to tha rag picker or even better yet that nasty old varmit, Col. Webb. I'll take bids, ats what I'll do.
: Old Crone
Now, ma'am, you don't want t' go an' do that. Mebbe I'm wild, but I'm not lazy. Jes' ask the magistrate's wife, the preacher's daughter, or Miz Sassy. An' I'm good at what I do.
Tell you what, Miz Crone, you come on to my place tonight an' we'll talk 'bout this. I got some nice herbal tea made from St. John's wort. An' did I say that you looked mighty fine after that mud facial you had? Took years off you, no foolin'.
Waitin' 'till t'night,
