... "Mr. Tryan, I hope you 'll excuse me disturbin' on you," said
Mr. Jerome; "but I 'd summat partickler to say." "You don't disturb
me at all, Mr. Jerome; I 'm very glad to have a visit from you,"
said Mr. Tryan, shaking him heartily by the hand, and offering him
the chintz-covered "easy " chair; "it is some time since I 've had
an opportunity of seeing you, except on a Sunday." "Ah, sir your
time's so taken up, I 'm well aware o' that; it's not only what you
hev to do, but it's goin' about from place to place; an' you don't
keep a hoss, Mr. Tryan. You don't take care enough o' yourself --
you don't indeed, an' that's what I come to talk to y' about."
"That's very good of you, Mr. Jerome; but I assure you I think
walking does me no harm. It is rather a relief to me after speaking
or writing. You know I have no great circuit to make. The farthest
distance I have to walk is to Milby Church, and if ever I want a
horse on a Sunday, I hire Radley's, who lives not many hundred
yards from me." "Well, but now the winter 's comin' on, an' you 'll
get wet i' your feet, an' Pratt tells me as your constitution's
dillicate, as anybody may see, for the matter o' that, wi'out bein'
a doctor. An' this iw the light I look at it in, Mr. Tryan: who's
to fill up your place, if you was to be disabled, as I may say?
Consider what a valyable life yours is. You 've begun a great work
i' Milby, and so you might carry it on, if you 'd your health and
strength. The more care you take o' yourself, the longer you 'll
live, belike, God willing, to do good to your fellow-creaturs." '.'
Why, my dear Mr. Jerome, I think I should not be a longlived man in
any case; and if I were to take care of myself under the pretext of
doing more good, I should very likely die and leave nothing done
