[M]y father struggled through half a page [of The White Peacock], and it might as well have been Hottentot.
“And what dun they gie thee for that, lad?”
“Fifty pounds, father.”
“Fifty founds!” He was dumbfounded, and looked at me with shrewd eyes, as if I were a swindler. “Fifty pounds! An’ tha’s niver done a day’s hard work in thy life.”

D.H. Lawrence
