Did you get rid of that last horse? He went and got himself slaughtered.”
Sidney J. Boudrias: “Well, my fellow brethren, I hope you are well satisfied at the prospect of obtaining some of the lands and estates of your brethren. Let me give you an example to show you how a person of rank is entitled to a share of your riches in this manner:
I was in this place when my brother, who was at St. Anne’s, had been assassinated by a band of soldiers, and he had taken refuge in this place.
