One o' the smacks hed jist brought in a hogfish that day, an' it was the worst lookin' critter that ever growed in the sea.
I took in a cat for company 'tother day, but the critter's run away.
Never see so much nonsense in one head 's that critter's got in his.
Need a tug to haul this critter into the channel, I swan you do!
Scarin' a pa'tridge to death with a dum dog, and then turnin' a handful o' shot loose on the critter, an' call it huntin'!
I never seen that hide neither, unless maybe when the critter was using it.
So he went to git his gun to shoot the critter, an' found he hadn't got no powder.
First I hear is them sour-face asking me who kills them critter.
I forked over a fourpence-ha'penny and got on tu the critter, tickled eenamost tu death tu git a chance tu sit down agin.
You pick the critter you want, and I guess Mrs. Hayward will pasture it for you.
