the newly married pair, that her sister was favourably disposed to the arrangement,
and that the husband had agreed to it before the wedding took place, and
now indignantly repudiated the contract.
"Won't you go away now, Susan?" said the newly married man, softening
"No," said she, "I won't so there!"
"Don't you budge an inch," cried the married sister within the
"Now now Maria," said the young man to his wife in a piteous tone
"don't go to cuttin' up in this way; now don't."
"I'll cut up as much as I wanter!" she sharply replied.
"Well," roared the desperate man, throwing the door wide open
and stalking out among the crowd, "jest you two women put on your duds
and go right straight home, and bring back the old man and woman, and your
grandfather, who is nigh on to a hundred; bring 'em all here and I'll marry
the whole comboodle of 'em and we'll all sleep together."

is enjoying itself over the sensation.
