It's chuckens an' chops an' new-laid heggs—yer did say new-laid heggs at thruppence each didn't yer, Mrs. Cricket?
A tray bit, missus—just thruppence—a mouldy thruppence to get a livener.
thruppence ain't no good to me—two shillings is what I want out o' you—a florin—'j'ear me?
Out comes the sarvint vith tuppence or thruppence, and a horder for me to "move on."
