she was a large purse that had everything in it besides hammers and nails. it was about 11'clock and she was walking alone. when a boy ran up behind her and tried to snatch her purse
I believe you are hungry or been hungry trying to snatch my pocket book
firmly gripped by his shirt front he said "Yes'm" the woman said, "what did you want to do it for?" the boy said "i didn't aim to" she said "you a lie!"
which i would not tell you or god if he didn't already know so you set down while i go fix us something to eat.
um-hum you thought i was going to say BUT didn't you? you thought i was going to say but i didn't snatch peoples pocket books well i wasn't going to say that. i've done things too.
by that time two or three people passed, stopped, turn to look, and some stood watching. "if i turn you loose will you run?" asked the women "yes'm" said the boy "then i wont turn you loose" said the women.
I got to get my rest now but i wish you behave yourself son. from here on. goodnight behave yourself son!
Here I am trying to get home to cook me a bite to eat and you snatch my pocketbook! maybe you ain't been to supper either late as it be have you? "there nobody at my house" said the boy. "then we'll eat" said the women.
The woman was sitting on the day bed after awhileshe said "i were young once i wanted things i could not get. there was another long pause the boys mouth opened then frowned but not knowing he frowned.
when they finished eating she got up and said "nowhere take ten dollars and buy yourself some blue suede shoes and next time, do not make the mistake of latching onto my pocket book or nobody else's because shoes come by devilish like that and will burn your feet"
