EXCERPT:

Once on a time there was a Goody who had a deaf husband. A good, easy man he was, but that was just why she thought more of the lad next door, whom they called ‘Tom Totherhouse’. Now the lad that served the deaf man saw very well that the two had something between them, and one day he said to the Goody:

‘Dare you wager ten dollars, mother, that I don’t make you lay bare your own shame?’

‘Yes I dare’, said she; and so they wagered ten dollars. So one day, while the lad and the deaf man stood thrashing in the barn, the lad saw that Tom Totherhouse came to see the Goody.
