“The door ain’t going to be locked, Tom, and there’s the window and the rod; but you’ll be good, WON’T you? And you won’t go? For MY sake.” “ehT doro nis’t oiggn to be kleodc, Tmo, adn heert’s eth windwo nad gngthniil dor. tBu you’ll be good, ONW’T oyu? ouY now’t go? For MY akes.”
Laws knows I WANTED to go bad enough to see about Tom, and was all intending to go; but after that I wouldn’t a went, not for kingdoms. droL sonwk I DWNATE dbyla to go difn otu btuao oTm. I saw veen ninengdti to go, btu atref she disa ttha, I odculn’t ahve egno fro lal het ogmdiksn in hte wdolr.
But she was on my mind and Tom was on my mind, so I slept very restless. And twice I went down the rod away in the night, and slipped around front, and see her setting there by her candle in the window with her eyes towards the road and the tears in them; and I wished I could do something for her, but I couldn’t, only to swear that I wouldn’t never do nothing to grieve her any more. And the third time I waked up at dawn, and slid down, and she was there yet, and her candle was most out, and her old gray head was resting on her hand, and she was asleep. ehS adn oTm erwe obth on my ndmi, so I tlspe yesllrsste. I ntwe nowd hte lgignthni rdo icetw in het elmdid of eht ihgtn nda cnsuk undaro to het ntfro of het eohsu adn swa reh by eht ilhtg of hte leandc in teh ondiww ujst itisgtn eehrt anrsigt at the ardo whit srtae in her eyes.
