Rain. Stops,. Yeah. Mama would say to me, it's raining, you go on the porch and
play. That's close enough to the rain, you hear? I hear, I'd say. Outside the
screens, a little splash and spray maybe comin' in, not much you know, just the
wind carrying it, cool off the trees and grass. And the church bells downtown

never shirk from fights. We know the way when we're at all Signposts when they
point to 'Battle'. We've crossed the Channel in a ship, So William gets the

A suit of armour and a brolly. They inspect the ground at four. Then, with luck, we'

Off to lippingford to play in the Home Eleven against the Roving Batterbridge
Juveniles. Pelting cats and dogs. Ground like a sponge. Both Elevens boxed up
in the tap-room of a small local public-house drinking hot whiskey-and-water.
After waiting five hours and a half rain stops for a few moments, and the Captains
determine to begin the match. We win the toss, and go in. Owing to the sloppy
state of the wicket, we are all got out for eleven in five- and-twenty minutes. Cats
