There was a girl with a long curl, and she said, 'Go to the 'pothecary's;' and what would Fly have known where she meant?
Foredocking of a word; as, pothecary for apothecary, nob for knob.
The minit it was out of sight, the 'pothecary snatched up his hat and scooted across the street like a crazy critter.
Generally printed "'pothecary" in the modern eds., but not in the early ones.
But it was a silver-plated one, in the blue bonnet of a "pothecary's boy."
He would turn all the contents of the 'pothecary's shop into my fallows, and call it 'progress.'
"And mine," sez the 'pothecary, a getting up and a spreading his hand out on his yaller vest.
"I don't see anything over genteel in him, any how," sez the 'pothecary a looking sort of oneasy.
"I hope so too," sez the 'pothecary, a looking as if he'd jest eat a sour lemon, without any sweetening.
The 'pothecary felt as if he should choke; he griped his hand, and the words came out of his mouth like hot bullets.
