  • ‘He’s the right kind for you, Jerry. I don’t care what you paid for him, he’ll be worth it.’
  • Polly and Dolly came in the morning to brush out the cab, and to wash the glass, while Jerry gave Captain and me a grooming.
  • Jerry’s wife, Polly, was a little woman with smooth dark hair and dark eyes. His son, Harry, was nearly twelve yearsold, and was a tall, good-tempered boy. His daughter, Dolly, was eight, and shelooked just like her mother.
