How was it about those people that you drove so fast to Sebec Lake when you used to run your stage there from Dover that City crowd that thought you could t handle the reins like their Boston of. That was a Long time ago. When drove to Stedman s Landin sevc c. Mile. Twas a mean stretch of Road after you past the four Corners. Two Miles Uphill and two Miles Down with just dirt enough Between rocks to make mud holes after a rain. That Day you speak of i had five passengers to the Lake two men and three Uotinen. They were All from Boston and they d Jred the whole coach for their own use. Everything passed off All right till we got by the 1 our Corners and then everything began to go wrong with the in the coach. When Are got to climbing the Hills the Passen Gers began to grumble about my Goin so slow. They were sure we could t get to the Landin in time to catch the boat and first one and then another of pm would stick his head out of the w Nouv All to ainu 10 ii Rev up. There was one woman in the party that was worse than All the rest. She had on one of those High bonnets that were in those Days with a lot of Flowers fixin s on it and every fire minutes that Bonnet would be Stoakin out of the window and i d hear like this Driver we re Goin too slow. I never like it. If we had one of our Boston Drivers Here we d go faster1. Xiv i knew that we were Goin As fast As anybody could drive Uphill Over that Road and i knew that the boat wait at the Landin till i got there but twas wasting my breath to talk to them folks. That woman with the Bonnet kept up her talk about our slow Down East ways and her Boston Drivers. T says nothing. But minded my horses. She stuck her head out of the window Handshe Samsag in really must go i says to myself you poor fool you Don t know nothing and never will. You re not Worth noticing says nothing to her or the others but kept the horse e to a right gait we Safe to catch the wat. Once that Bonnet with the Flowers and Feath out of the window. Screamed. If Don t go faster i shall get out and there was one Man in the part that acted As if he had some sense. I Beard him Tell the others that he guessed i knew my business and would get them to the boat All right. Butow afe no use. The woman would t listen or be Satis fied. We got to the top of the Ridge at last and before us Lay a two mile downhill All the Way to the Landin. And As Steep and rough As what we do been a climbing. Tin re were rocks and mud holes and cobble stones and some of the Road was Corduroy logs Laid Side by Side through the swampy spots had t been repaired for Jears and the Frost had Hove the lugs All ways. Generally 1 used the Brake a Good Deal Goin Down to the Lake but this time i did t touch it Owin to the folks in the coach wantin to go fast. I la show you a gait for the rest of the Way that la make you w for one of your Boston i says to myself and gave the horses the whip and i did t let pm out of a run j till we got to the Landin. Coach in the air about half the time and the other half it was hit tin something Rock or a stump or the Bottom of a mud Hole to give it a fresh Hist upward and we were near upset tin a dozen times. The folks inside got enough of that pretty Quick and they called out for me to go slower but i said i Dap to the horses and pit pm ahead like i had t heard nothing. The women were screaming and every now and a in somebody s head Wotila bump the top of the coach like it was coining through and All hands a crying out for me to Stop. But i let on i did t understand they said and i called Back to hurry. Well git there in time for tvs the horses to a harder Pace. I did t draw rein till we struck the Edge of the Pond and i pulled t3ie horses up in three feet of water. I backed up to the the guest chamber. Personal and literary. Gave the houses the Vii ii. Shore and tie men crawled out of tie coach and then they helped the women out. They were a sight to behold. The were cry Mand the store clothes on All of pm were mussed up so they did t look much better than us Down a asters. That woman s Bonnet was gnashed Flat in the head and the Trimmin s on you could t or Flowers or. Ribbons for they were All mussed together. The crowd were pretty mad and pretty seared All but the Man i be spoken of he was a laugh in and he said to the others it Don t do to Wake up these Down East Drivers they All went tip to the Lake on the boat and i was there at the Landin Wail in to pick up passengers when it came Back at night. I did t look to be any More custom Cut of the eos 1 on people. A May item but they were aboard and the Man hailed me from the boat before it touched the wharf. We want to go Back v. Ith he called. I had nothing to say a in that of course and i took Emback to when they d All got seated in the coach the Man stuck his head out of the window and he says to me Driver go just As fast As you please t drove Kerful Goin Back. I speeder 1he horses where the Road was Good and i got pm to Dover on time and a Little better. The ladies said Good by to me pleasantly and the Man he Shook hands with me.
