I wouldn't have accepted him if he hadn't made such a perfectly dreadful threat." "Oh! That old stall about rushing out and committing suicide." "No, worse than that" "But all of those threats are bluffs. I Buppose he said he'd kill the next man who called on you, eh?" "No, no! I've heard that before. Dearie, he threatened that if I"did not accept him he'd go and propose to you. And I believe he would have done it, too he was perfectly desperate."
