[The Dead] [6537] Mr. Browne took another sip of his whisky and said, with sidling
[The Dead] [6541] to have said: 'Now, Mary Grimes, if I don't take it, make me take it,
[The Dead] [6561] "O, here's Mr. Bergin and Mr. Kerrigan," said Mary Jane. "Mr.

[The Dead] [6605] "Good-evening, Freddy," said Aunt Julia.
[The Dead] [6613] "He's not so bad, is he?" said Aunt Kate to Gabriel.
[The Dead] [6620] "Now, isn't he a terrible fellow!" she said. "And his poor mother
[The Dead] [6626] Browne nodded in answer and, when she had gone, said to Freddy
[The Dead] [6702] When they had taken their places she said abruptly:

[The Dead] [6762] "Her people are," said Gabriel shortly.
[The Dead] [6764] "But you will come, won't you?" said Miss Ivors, laying her arm
[The Dead] [6767] "The fact is," said Gabriel, "I have just arranged to go----"
[The Dead] [6777] said Gabriel awkwardly.
[The Dead] [6779] "And why do you go to France and Belgium," said Miss Ivors,
[The Dead] [6782] "Well," said Gabriel, "it's partly to keep in touch with the

[The Dead] [6844] couples. When she reached him she said into his ear:
[The Dead] [6849] "All right," said Gabriel.
[The Dead] [6864] "There was no row," said Gabriel moodily, "only she wanted me to
[The Dead] [6865] go for a trip to the west of Ireland and I said I wouldn't."
[The Dead] [6871] "You can go if you like," said Gabriel coldly.
[The Dead] [6874] said:
[The Dead] [6886] Gabriel hardly heard what she said. Now that supper was coming

[The Dead] [6974] "I often told Julia," said Aunt Kate emphatically, "that she was
[The Dead] [6975] simply thrown away in that choir. But she never would be said by

[The Dead] [7120] but Aunt Kate had said that plain roast goose without any apple
[The Dead] [7136] said there was time enough, so that, at last, Freddy Malins stood up
[The Dead] [7140] When everyone had been well served Gabriel said, smiling:
[The Dead] [7148] "Very well," said Gabriel amiably, as he took another preparatory
[The Dead] [7158] style of production. Freddy Malins said there was a Negro

[The Dead] [7277] "The coffin," said Mary Jane, "is to remind them of their last end."

[The Dead] [7352] away discourteously: and he said with confidence in himself:
[The Dead] [7373] "Hear, hear!" said Mr. Browne loudly.
[The Dead] [7395] Gabriel had said.
[The Dead] [7397] "He says we are the Three Graces, Aunt Julia," said Mary Jane.
[The Dead] [7421] said loudly:
[The Dead] [7462] standing so that Aunt Kate said:
[The Dead] [7467] "Browne is out there, Aunt Kate," said Mary Jane.
[The Dead] [7469] "Browne is everywhere," said Aunt Kate, lowering her voice.
[The Dead] [7473] "Really," she said archly, "he is very attentive."
[The Dead] [7475] "He has been laid on here like the gas," said Aunt Kate in the same
[The Dead] [7491] "Teddy will have all the cabs in Dublin out," he said.
[The Dead] [7494] struggling into his overcoat and, looking round the hall, said:
[The Dead] [7498] "She's getting on her things, Gabriel," said Aunt Kate.
[The Dead] [7504] "O no, Aunt Kate," said Mary Jane. "Bartell D'Arcy and Miss
[The Dead] [7507] "Someone is fooling at the piano anyhow," said Gabriel.
[The Dead] [7509] Mary Jane glanced at Gabriel and Mr. Browne and said with a

[The Dead] [7532] "O, now, Gabriel," said Aunt Kate, laughing, "he had a starch
[The Dead] [7535] "Well, glue or starch," said Gabriel, "the old gentleman had a horse

[The Dead] [7577] "I could only get one cab," he said.
[The Dead] [7579] "O, we'll find another along the quay," said Gabriel.
[The Dead] [7581] "Yes," said Aunt Kate. "Better not keep Mrs. Malins standing in
[The Dead] [7606] "Yes, sir," said the cabman.
[The Dead] [7608] "Well, drive bang up against Trinity College gates," said Mr.
[The Dead] [7612] "Yes, sir," said the cabman.
[The Dead] [7616] "Right, sir," said the cabman.
[The Dead] [7645] "Well, isn't Freddy terrible?" said Mary Jane. "He's really terrible."
[The Dead] [7647] Gabriel said nothing but pointed up the stairs towards where his

[The Dead] [7679] "I have been at him all the evening," said Miss O'Callaghan, "and
[The Dead] [7683] "O, Mr. D'Arcy," said Aunt Kate, "now that was a great fib to tell."
[The Dead] [7685] "Can't you see that I'm as hoarse as a crow?" said Mr. D'Arcy
[The Dead] [7694] "It's the weather," said Aunt Julia, after a pause.
[The Dead] [7696] "Yes, everybody has colds," said Aunt Kate readily, "everybody."
[The Dead] [7698] "They say," said Mary Jane, "we haven't had snow like it for thirty

[The Dead] [7829] As the cab drove across O'Connell Bridge Miss O'Callaghan said:
