dus Malbone would no more think of askin' me to have her, than she'd think of marryin' you!
"These are matters about which one had better not say much," dus added, after a pause.
Well, now, dus, haf you a cup of tea for the lantlort—to welcome him to his own house wit'?
dus and I continued to converse on this subject until she got again into the saddle.
dus was treasure enough of herself, and wanted not money to enhance her value in my eyes.
I do believe dus was a little sustained by some similar sentiment.
Which makes me the more curious to hear what dus could or did say in reply.
You do not seriously mean to say, Chainbearer, that you will refuse me dus?
Pausing a moment, as if to reconnoitre, the girl suddenly moved into the forest, when I made no doubt she and dus had a meeting.
The cheeks of dus, too, had recovered their color, and her eyes their brightness.
