dil was quite well off this summer; her mother often brought home clothes she could wear.
Oi knew dil Noort would be ready to cut me throat on soight.
dil glanced about in alarm, and would have fled to her room, but her mother caught her by the arm.
dil studied the shelves as they were passing the time of day.
dil, dear, Im as much trouble as the babies; but I most know Ill be better to-morrow.
For there would have been no martyrdom equal to being separated from dil.
dil wanted to sit down and cry from some unknown excess of feelingshe never had time to cry from pure joy.
There aint no fairies truly, said dil with pathetic gravity.
I dont bleve I could go way, said dil, with soft-toned doubtfulness.
But I wouldnt want to be in a pallis an have everything, if I couldnt have dil.
