And Laban answered: it is better yt I geue her the/ than to another man: byde therfore with me.
Laban was to receive ten dollars a week, from which sum he was to provide his own meals.

You won't say anything about Laban before Mrs. Ellis, will you, Albert?

Laban says it's good, though he won't go so far as to say it's the very best.
