Abe.
I guess that fowl is pretty well used up. I calculate he's going to cave in.
Seward.
He certainly looks a little shaky at present but I see no harm yet—simply moulting Sir, that's all—a black draught will put him all right, Sir. In thirty days that bird Sir, will be in better plumage than ever.
Abe.
Well I hope so, but I think doctor the black draughts already given have pretty well-played the devil with him.
