Sir, there is no road to that garden; the road is stopped up.
Why is it stopped? How long has it been stopped? Have you seen it?
Sir, about five days ago the drain of the road in front of the garden brake. They are now repairing it; therefore the road is stopped.

No. I suppose you don’t pay attention to all this business.
The horses don't get their proper quantity of food, that's the reason of their being weak.
