I was saying such garments are rare sights in the country; and perchance, too, it was thought the more rare, respect being had to the person who wore it, who, they tell me, is the daughter of Black George, your worship's gamekeeper, whose sufferings, I should have opined, might have taught him more wit, than to dress forth his wenches
in such gaudy apparel.
That I may make short of this black part of this story, I was attacked by two wenches that came open-mouthed at me just as I was going out at the door, and one of them pulled me back into the room, while the other shut the door upon me.
The mistress of the house was moved with compassion, and inclined to have let me go, and had almost persuaded her husband to it also, but the saucy wenches were run, even before they were sent, and had fetched a constable, and then the master said he could not go back, I must go before a justice, and answered his wife that he might come into trouble himself if he should let me go.
She tampered with them, offered them money, and, in a word, tried all imaginable ways to prevent a prosecution; she offered one of the wenches #100 to go away from her mistress, and not to appear against me, but she was so resolute, that though she was but a servant maid at #3 a year wages or thereabouts, she refused it, and would have refused it, as my governess said she believed, if she had offered her #500.

The last dispatch from the tortured movie production of Lords of Dogtown claimed that Sony had shelved it "due to script concerns." This recent disclosure has inspired several rabid media wenches
to offer cash incentives to anyone who could provide them with a copy of this "offensive" Stacy Peralta/Roger Avary screenplay which pundits are already calling "Animal Pulp Chindog Fiction." EBay pirates such as the ubiquitous Sarge, Dicky Discount, and Barfly are all claiming that a for-sale copy exists and will soon rear its ugly head.
