Excerpt

what do you mean?

TOUPEE. Vous ne m'entendez pas. [_Hastily._

TRUEMAN. Do you threaten me, you insignificant thing? Do you call me names?

TOUPEE. Diable! me no stand under your names.

TRUEMAN. Zounds and fury! I am raving. Must I bear to be abus'd in this manner, by a vile Tonsor?

TOUPEE. Yes, you Schoolmastare; you tell me vat be you booby.

TRUEMAN. Pertinacious, audacious reptile! [_Canes TOUPEE._

TOUPEE. Ah, mon dieu! mon dieu! [_Runs off._

TRUEMAN. To insult a professor of Orthography, Analogy, Syntax, and Prosody!

SCENE II. _A Street._

_Enter YOUNG LOVEYET._

In compliance with the commands of a father, here I am, once more in the place of my nativity. Duty to him, and curiosity to know, why he has enjoined my sudden departure so peremptorily, as well as a desire to see New-York (perhaps never to leave it more) have all conspir'd to bring me here sooner than I am expected,--let me see--yes, I must try to find out Frankton first.
