Example text

The old barn and smokehouse was logs and was both needing some work pretty bad.  It wasn't a bad little place, but I wasn't a farmer and didn't want it.  A home for her and the man, a place where she could have chickens and a garden spot and hang a quilt in the front room and have a stove to cook on from now on. Lord, I hated to disappoint them two people.  I was even unselfish enough to think about taking a hundred dollars and leaving them the other hundred.  Maybe they could get another place with their part.

Sell the steer afoot,' he says.  When the man got saddled up he rode by the store porch and stopped long enough for me to tell him about the work train and then left in a long lope.  He was poor enough to be charitable.  Seems gruel was strengthening as broth.  I raised up and looked, and the man was coming by the store, and another fellow had just left him and was climbing the steps.  When the man stopped by to see him before going on to Fostoria, he'd told him to hold up and maybe he could make a deal with me for the whole steer and save him the trip.

I didn't tell them that sick or well I had to go on. Me and them steers was still too close to their home range to stop.  The man Page 39 said traveling with a white man they wouldn't be done like that, so they'd be glad to go on with me.  She stood and waited until I got maybe a pint of it down and then took the jar and poured the rest of it back in the pot.  It helped take some of the bitter taste out.  I'd got to be an expert on them by this time and knew this would be another bad one, so I called the man and woman, and they helped me out of the wagon and bedded me down by the fire.
