You foolish girl. How are you expecting to pay Mr.Higgins?
I understand the cost for the lessons and as do you, I’m ready to pay
A friend of mine pays eighteen pence an hour for french lessons. You wouldn't charge me the same for my own language, would you? I won't give more than a shilling. Either take it or leave it.
Sixty pounds! I never offered you sixty pounds!
Pickering, if you consider a shilling a percent of this girl. It can come out around sixty or seventy guineas from a millionaire. They have around 150 pounds a day, the girl gets half-a-crown, she offereces me two-fifths of her day’s income for the lesson, if that becomes two-fifths of a millionaire income it would some up to around 60 pounds. It’s the best offer I ever had!
