"I must have a glass of it to your health, ma belle Lela, if it cost me a crown piece," and he drew forth the coin as he spoke.
Lela said that he must hear what it was before he made any promise.
Strange how everybody seems to fall for him, even Lela Barker.
And directly Lela returned, his first wife recovered from her illness.
Then Chandmoni asked Lela why he had come, and he told her, “to fetch the flower.”
When she called, Lela answered from the tree and she thought that it was her lover and said “Come down and let us be off.”
"They'll not astonish him," said Lela, looking steadily at me.
Lela said that he would go if the Raja gave him a written bond In the presence of witnesses; and this the Raja willingly did.
So Lela started off and when he was gone his wife fell ill, and her body became a mass of sores.
Lela promised to take her with him, so they cut off the tongue and ears and claws of the Rakhas and returned to the city.
