Sir, that’s true; but your slave, according to his ability, commits no fault.
Very well; when I get home I will examine into it.
Stop the coach here; I will go on foot from hence; the road is stopped up.
Turn the coach. I will soon come back.
Take the coach into its own place again.
Bearer, pull off my boots.
As your order, Sir, I am pulling them off.
Bearer, bring some hot water.
Sir, I have put the water on the fire. When it is ready, I will immediately come and bring it.
What? Is not the water hot yet? Did not I order it when I went out in the coach?
Sir, it is almost ready.
What do you say? I suppose you pay no attention to me. The work which I ordered at daybreak, it is not ready yet.
Sir, there is a fault. Don’t be angry any longer.
What kind of fault is this? Suppose any other gentlemen had come to breakfast? They have not come, therefore all is well. If they had come what could have been done? I should have been greatly ashamed.
Sir, your slaves have committed a fault; let there be orders to forgive.
