Howth Castle &º Environs.º Sir Tristram, violer d'amores, fr'over the short sea, had passencore rearrived from North Armorica on this side the scraggy isthmus of Europe Minor to wielderfight his penisolate war:º nor had |2stream topsawyer's2| rocks by the |2stream2| Oconee exaggerated themselse to Laurens |2County, Georgia, County's gorgiosº2| while they went doublin |2their mumper2| all the time:º nor avoice from afire bellowsed mishe mishe to tauftauf thuartpeatrick: not yet, though venisoonº after, had a kidscad buttended a bland old isaac:º not yet, though all's fair in vanessy, were sosie sesthers wroth with twone |2Joenathan nathandjoe2|. Rot a peck of pa's malt had Jhem or Shen brewed by arclight and rory end to the regginbrow was to be seen ringsome on the waterface.

The fall (bababadal­gharaghtakammin­arronnkonn­bronn­tonnerronntuonn­thunntrovarrhoun­awnskawn­toohoohoordenen­thurnuk!)º of a once wallstrait oldparr is retaled early in bed and later on life down through all christian minstrelsy. The great fall of the offwall entailed at such short notice the schute of Finnigan, erse solid man, that the humptyhillhead of humself prumptly sendsº an unquiring one well to the west in quest of his tumptytumtoes: and their upturnpikepointandplace is at the knock out in the park where oranges have been laid toº rust upon the green since Devlins firstº loved livy.

|2Bygmister Bygmester2| Finneganº, of the Stuttering Hand, freemen's maurer, lived in the broadest way immarginable in his rushlit toofarback for messuages and during mighty odd years this man of hod, cement and edifices in Toper's Thorp piled buildung supra buildung pon the banks for the livers by the Soangso. He addle liddle phifie Annie |2hugged ugged2| the little craythur Wither hayre in honds tuck up your partinherº.

Of the first was he to bare arms and a name. His crest of huroldry, in vert with ancillars, troublant, argent, a hegoak, poursuivant, horrid, horned. His scutchum,º fessed, with archers strung, helio, of the second. Hootch is for husbandman handling his hoe. Hohohoho, Mister Finn, you're going to be Mister Finnagain!

What then agentlike brought about |2that tragoady |athundersday thuddersdayºa|2| this municipal sin business? It may half been a missfired brick, as some say, or it mought have been due to a collupsus of his back promises, as others looked at it (thereº extand by now one thousand and one stories, all told, of the same).º But so sore did abe ite ivvy's holired abbles (what withº the wallhall's horrors of rollsrights, carhacks, stoneengensº, |2hippohobbilies,2| kisstvanes, tramtrees, fargobawlers, autokinotons, |2hippohobbilies,2| streetfleets, tournintaxes, megaphoggs, circuses and wardsmoats and basilikerks and aeropagods and the hoyse and the jollybrool and the peeler in the coat and the mecklenburk bitch bite at his ear and the merlnburrow burrocks and his fore old porecourts, the bore the more, and his

With her issavan essavans and her patterjackmartins about all them inns and ouses. Tilling a teel of a tum, telling a toll of a teary turty |2Tubling Taubling2|. Grace before Glutton. For what we are, gif|2, a gross if,º2| we are, about to believe. So pool the begg and pass the kish for crawsake. Omen. So sigh us. Grampupus is fallen down but |2grauny spreads grinny sprids2| the boord. Whase on the joint of a desh? Finfoefom the Fush. Whase be his baken head? A loaf of Singpantry's Kennedy bread.

But, lo, as you would quaffoff his fraudstuff and sink teeth through that pyth of a flowerwhite bodeyº behold of him as behe moth for he is nowheremore. Finiche! Only a fadograph of a yestern scene. Almost rubicund salmon, ancient fromout the ages of the Agapemonides, he is smolten in our mist, woebecanned and packt away. So that meal's dead off for summan, schlook, schlice and goodridhirring.

Yet may we not see still the brontoichthyanº form outlined,º aslumbered, even in our own nighttime by the sedge of the troutling stream that Bronto loved and Bronto has a lean on?º |2Hic cubat edilis.

What a warm time we were in there but how keling is here the airabouts! And such reasonable weather too! The |2wind's wind'z awalt'z2| aroundº the |2downs piltdowns2| and on every blasted knollyrock there's that gnarlybird ygathering, a runalittle, doalittle, preealittle, pouralittle, wipealittle, kicksalittle, severalittle, eatalittle, whinealittle, kenalittle, |2helpalittle helfalittle2|, pelfalittle gnarlybird. She nivverº comes out when Thon's on shower or when Thon's flash with the Nixy girls or when Thon's blowing toomcracks down the gaels of Thon. Her would be too moochy aveerd. She jest does hopes till byes will be byes. Here, and it goes on to appear now, she comes, aº peacefugle, a parody's bird, a peri potmother, picking here, pecking there, pussypussy plunderpussy. But it's the armitides toonigh and toomourn we wish for a muddy kissmans |2to the minutia workers2| and there'sº to be a gorgeups truce forº all the childers. She's burrowed the coacher's lamp the better to pry and all spoiled goods go into her nabsack: curtrages and rattlin buttins, nappy spattees and flasks of all nations, clavicures and scampulars, maps, keys and woodpiles of haypennies and moonled brooches with bloostanedº breeks in em andº boaston nightgarters and masses of shoesets and nickelly nacks and fodderº allmicheal and a lugly parson of cates and howitzer muchearsº and midgers and maggets, wells and wails,º and the last sigh that come fro the hart and the fairest sin the sun sawº. With Kiss. Kiss Criss. Cross Criss. Kiss Cross. Undo lives' endº. Slain.º

How bootifull and how truetowife of her, when strengly forebidden, to steal our historic presents from the past postpropheticals so as |2to willº2| make us all |2lord heirs lordyheirsº2| and ladymaidesses of a pretty nice kettle of fruit. She is livving in our midst of debt and laffing |2unto tears through all plores2| for us |2(her birth is uncontrollable!),º2| with a naperon for her mask and her sabboes kickin arias,º if you ask me and I saack you. Hou!
{f10, 10}
hou! Gricks may rise andº Troysirs fall (there being two sights for ever a picture)
{f39, 12}
for in the byways of high improvidence that's what makesº lifework leaving and the world's a cell for citters to |2sit cit2| in. Let young wimman run away with the story and let young min talk smooth behind the butteler's back. Sheº knows her knight's duty while Luntum sleeps. Did ye save any tin? says he. Did I what? with a grin says she. And we all like a marriedann because she is mercenary. Though the length of the land lies under liquidation |2(floote!) and there's nare a hairbrow nor an |aeyebusch eyebruschºa| on |athe face this |bglaubrousb| phacea| of Herrschuft Whatarwelter2| she'll loan a vesta and hire some peat and sarch the shores |2for her2| cockles to |2eat heat2| and she'll do all a turfwoman can to piff the business on. Paff. To puff the blaziness on. Puffpuff. And even if Humpty |2were to shell2| fall frumpty times as awkward again there'll be iggs for the brekkers come to mournhim|2, sunnyº side up with care2|. So true is it that therewhere's a turnover the tay is |2there wet2| too and when you think you ketch sight of a hind make sure |2you're not but you're2| cocked by a hin.

Then as she is on her behaviourite job we may take our review of the two mounds,º to see nothing of the himples here as at elsewhere, by sixes and sevens, like so many heegills and collinesº sitting around, scentbreeched and somepotreek,º in their swishawish satins and their taffetaffe tights, at a treepurty in the purk. Stand up, mickies! Make stray for minnies! By order, Nicholas Proud. We may see and hear nothing if we choose of the shortlegged bergins off Corkhill or the bergamoors of Arbourhill or the bergagambols of Summerhill or the bergincellies of Miseryhill or the countrybossed bergones of Constitutionhill though every crowd has its several tones and every |2tone trade2| has its clever mechanics and each harmonical has a point of its own, Olaf's on the |2right rise2| and Ivor's on the lift and Sitric's place's between them. But all they are all there scraping along |2for a livelihood to to sneeze out a likelihood that will2| solve and salve life's robulous rebus, hopping round his middle like kippers on a griddle, O, as he lays dormont from the |2macroberg macroborg2| of Holdhard to the microbirg of Pied des Poudres. |2Hic cubat edilis. Apud libertinam parvulam.2| Behove this

Hush! Caution! Echoland!

How charmingly exquisite! It reminds you of the outwashed engravure that we used to be blurring on the blotchwall of his innkempt house. Used they? (I am sure that tiring chabelshoveller with the mujikal chocolotº box, Miry Mitchel, is listening.)º I say, the remains of the outworn gravemure
{f10, 11}
where used to be blurried the Ptollmens of the Incabus. Used we? (He is only pretendant to be stugging at the jubalee harp from a second existed lishener, Fiery Farrelly.)º It is well known. Lookº for himself and see the |2site old butte new2|. Dbln. W.K.O.O. Hear? By the mausolime wall. Fimfim fimfim. With a grand funferall. Fumfum fumfum. They will be tuggling foriver. They will be |2lishening lichening2| for allofº. They will be pretumbling forover. The harpsdischord shall be theirs for ollavesº.

It was of a night, late, lang time agone, in an auldstane eld, when Adam
{f10, 17}
was delvin and his
madameen spinning watersilts, when |2big mountin mulk mountynotty2| man was everybully and the first leal ribberrobber |2that ever had her ain way ainway2| everybuddy elseº to his makin eyes and whenº everybilly lived alove with everybiddy elseº and Jarl van Hoother had his burnt head high up in his lamphouse, laying cold hands on himself. And his two little jiminies, cousins of oursº, Tristopher and Hilary, wereº kickaheeling their dummy on the oilclothº flure of his homerigh, castle and earthenhouse. And, be dermot, who come to the keep of his inn only the |2niece of his niece-of-his-in-law2|, the prankquean. And the prankquean pulled a rosy one and made her wit forenenstº the dour. And she lit up |2and fireland was ablaze2|. And spoke she to the dour in her petty perusienne: Mark the Wans, why do I am alook alike a poss of porterpease? And that was how the skirtmisshes began. But the dour handworded her grace in dootch nossow: Shut! So her grace o'malice kidsnapped up the jiminy Tristopher and into the shandy westerness she rain, rain, rain. And Jarl van Hoother warlessed after her with soft dovesgall: Stop deef stop come back to my earin stop. But she swaradid to him: Unlikelihud. And there was a brannewwailº that same sabbaothº night of falling angles somewhere in Erio. And the prankquean went for her forty years' walk in Tourlemonde and she washed the blessings of the lovespots off the jiminy with soap |2sulliver's sulliver2| suddlesº and she had her four owlers masters for to tauch him his tickles and she convorted him to the onesure allgood and he became a luderman. So then she started to rain and to rain and, be redtom, she was back again at Jarl van Hoother's in a brace of samers and the jiminy with her in her pinafrond, lace at night, at another time. And where did she come but to the bar of his bristolry. And Jarl vanº Hoother had his baretholobruised heels drowned in his cellarmalt, shaking warm hands with himself,º and the jiminyº Hilaryº and
{f39, 22}
the dummy in their first infancy were below on the tearsheet, wringing and coughing, like brodar and histher. And the prankquean nipped a paly one and lit up again and |2redcocks flew |aup flackeringa| from the hillcombs. And2| she made her witter before the wicked, saying: Mark the Twy, who do I am alook alike two poss of porterpease? And: Shut!º says the wicked, handwording her madesty. So her madesty a'forethoughtº set down a jiminy and took up a jiminy and all the lilipath ways to Woeman's Land she rain, rain, rain. And |2the2| Jarl vanº Hoother bleethered atter her with a loud finegale: Stop domb stop come back with my earring stop. But the prankquean swaradid: Am liking it. And there was a wild old grannewwail that altarsameº laurency night of starshootings somewhere in Erio. And the prankquean went for her forty years' walk in |2blank Turnlemeem2| and she punched the curses of cromcruwell with the nail of a top into the jiminy and she had her four larksical monitrix
{f10, 18}
to tauchº him his tears and she |2convorted provorted2| him to the onecertain allsecureº and he became a tristian. So then she started raining, raining, and in a pair of changers, be dom ter, she was back again at Jarl vanº Hoother's and the Larryhillº with her under her abromette. And why would she halt at all if not by the ward of his mansionhome of another nice lace for the third charm? And Jarl vanº Hoother had his hurricane hips up to his pantrybox, ruminating in his holdfour stomachs (Dare! O dare!), and the jiminy Toughertrees and the dummy were belove on the watercloth, kissing and spitting, and roguing and poghuing, like knavepaltry and naivebride and in their second infancy. And the prankquean picked a blank and lit out and |2the valleys lay twinkling. And2| she made her wittest in front of the arkway of trihump, asking: Mark the Tris, why do I am alook alike three poss of porterpeaseº? But that was how the skirtmisshesº endupped. For,º like the campbells acoming with a |2lance forklanceº2| of lightning, Jarl vanº Hoother |2Boanerges2| himself, the old terror of the dames, came hip hop handihap out through the |2opened pikeopened2| arkway of his three shuttoned castlesº in his broadginger hat and his civic chollar and his allabuff |2shurt hemmedº2| like a rudd yellan gruebleen orangeman in his violet indigonation, to the whole longth of the strongth of his bowman's bill. And he clopped his rude hand to his eacy hitch and he ordered and his thick |2spuck spuck spch spck2| for her to shut up shop, dammy. And the dummy shot the shutter up.º (gok­gorlayorrgrom­gremmitghun­dhurthrum­athunaradidillifai­titillibumullunuk­kunen!)º And they all drank free. |2For one man in his armour |ais wasa| a |agood fata| match always for any girls under |askirts shurtsa|.2| And that was the first peace of illiterativeº porthery in |2the whole all the2| flamend floodyº flatuous world. The prankquean was to hold her dummyship and the jiminiesº was to keep the peacewave and van Hoother was to git the wind up. Thus the hearsomeness of the burger felicitates the whole of the polis.
