Embedded text or transcriptMy dear friend I hope you are not very much hurt. what could you have done to
provoke the creature so? I never saw a man get such a tumble!:- Confound it! I am bruised all
over. Who could have thought the beast had such a vicious trick in her? I thought her as docile
as a poodle dog:- B'hitho - we must look sharply after you mam and see you don't play us this
trick again. Come mount you don't mind a little danger. - Oh I warrant she'll go quite steadily
with you
