Tony. No offence; but question for question is all fair, you know. Pray, gentlemen, is not this same Hardcastle a cross-graind, old-fashiond, whimsical fellow, with an ugly face, a daughter, and a pretty son?
Tony. Then, keeping to the right, you are to go sideways till you come upon Crack-skull Common; there you must look sharp for the track of the wheel, and go forward till you come to farmer Murrains barn. Coming to the farmers barn, you are to turn to the right, and then to the left, and then to the right about again, till you find out the old mill
Tony. And, to my knowledge, thats taken up by three lodgers already. (After a pause, in which the rest seem disconcerted.) I have hit it: Dont you think, Stingo, our landlady would accommodate the gentlemen by the fireside, with three chairs and a bolster?
Tony. Mum! you fool, you let them find that out. (To them.) You have only to keep on straight forward till you come to a large house on the roadside; youll see a pair of large horns over the door; thats the sign. Drive up the yard, and call stoutly about you.
Tony. No, no; but I tell you, though, the landlord is rich, and going to leave off business; so he wants to be thought a gentleman, saving your presence, he-he-he! Hell be for giving you his company; and, ecod! if you mind him, hell persuade you that his mother was an alderman, and his aunt a justice of peace.
