  • Nay, master, said not I as much when I saw the
    porpus how he bounced and tumbled? they say

  • Because he should have swallowed me too: and when I
    had been in his belly, I would have kept such a
    jangling of the bells, that he should never have

    parish up again. But if the good King Simonides
    were of my mind,--
  • Second Fisherman. Why, man?

    Third Fisherman. Because he should have swallowed me too: and when I
    had been in his belly, I would have kept such a
    jangling of the bells, that he should never have

    parish up again. But if the good King Simonides
    were of my mind,--
