Magistrale (to Casual)-! understana that you distinctly refused to do the work given you by the master of the workhouse? Casual- Quite true, yer worship. Magistrate- What was your reason? Casual- Well, ye worship, it was for conscience' sake. In th# fust plae, I've got a conscientious hobjection to work; in the second, I've got a conscientious hobjection to the master, and in the third, I've got a conscientious hobjection to you. And ÍÍ my conscientious hobjections ain't better than those of a bloomin' hanti-waccinator, why, s'whelp me! never ask me to take my dyin' hoath agin. The magistrate did not.
