If the sergeant-majorhas got his back up with me, I dare say I can stick it.
An you dont want to mind what any bloody officer says toyou, see?

Bourne had always liked his hair very short. Only you didnt say all that you was thinkin. Respectable people, you know; I should say the oldgirl ad quite a bit o rattle to er. Me mother always says youve got to be patient wi folk,an folk aint got no patience now.

Youllget a thick ear yourself, if you dont stop laffin. We shall go out and have abeano together.
