The only coat I had with me my master took away with him, and said if my prize-money had been 10,000 .
The prize-money is pooled and divided among all the competitors.
He therefore came to request Mr Easy to lend him a few hundred pounds, until he should be able, by his prize-money, to repay them.
As soon as I get my prize-money, I intend to send it home to father.
I got home at last, with plenty of prize-money to set up house, but she was gone.
Because I shall get my whack of the prize-money same as you, old chap.
I inquired, as the bright idea occurred to me; “I will return it to him out of my pay and prize-money.”
He might also hope, in so fine a vessel, to make a fair amount of prize-money.
After this every thing fell into confusion, and the men refused to work till they should receive their prize-money.
He was well off and did not seem to care for the prize-money.
