When he had asked me the way
to the Forty-second street ferry
and added that he wanted to catch
a West Shore train, he said:
"Hanner was purty nigh right

"Who is Hannah, and what did
she tell you?" I asked.
"Hanner's my old woman. I'd

said I'd be robbed of my watch."
"And were you?"
"I was. Yes, sir, I lost it the
fust day I got here. Somebody
stole it while I was gawpin'
around. Hanner will grin when 1
hev to tell her about it. She also
said I'd be robbed of my money."
"And did that happen?"
"She did. Yes, sir. A feller
got my wallet while I was ridin on
a street car, and I never knowed it
till he was gone. Hanner will
laugh herself to death when I tell
her about it. She also told me I'd

She also said I'd get into a fight
