“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.” “hTe rodo nis’t inogg to be lecodk, omT, adn etrhe’s teh nwwido and nniilhtgg dor. utB uoy’ll be odgo, OWN’T yuo? Yuo now’t go? For MY seka.”

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. eSh nda Tom wree btoh on my mdin, so I eltsp tlssyeerls.
