Excerpt: ... MR. SUDGEBERRY AND THE CHERRY RIBBONS THE three occupants of the room turned toward the door and stared at us in a kind of paralytic amazement for several moments, during which my renewed sneezing was the only sound to be heard.

At the sound of my voice, Miss Gray shrieked aloud. "Heaven defend us " exclaimed her father. "'Tis that Sudgeberry " Miss Gray fell back in her chair and covered her face with her hands. "Ay, old man," I answered, in a fateful tone, in spite of the before-mentioned infirmity of pronunciation which forced me to address him, against my will, as "old bad," instead of "old man," although I had then no desire to speak harshly to him, "it is I " "It is I" he cried. ..".
