00:54

A guest to stop dipping in the wintertime was an

00:58

unheard of piece of luck let alone a guest who

01:01

was no hagler And she was resolved to show herself

01:04

worthy of her good fortune Alright well an important thing

01:08

to pick up on here is that whatever a haggler

01:10

is mrs hall is glad the stranger ain't one so

01:15

let's start by nixing answer b it's True that mrs

01:18

hall was probably glad that the stranger isn't a person

01:20

way or the other but if she did chances are

01:59

she wouldn't be all that impressed with the strangers wrapped

02:01

from head to toe Weird sunglasses ensemble if hagler men

02:06

somebody with no fashion well then the stranger would be

02:09

one Yeah the correct answer is a mrs hall's Glad

02:14

bargain down the products like he pays retail What kind

02:17

of person is this He burst into the place flings

02:20

a few sovereigns coins money on the table and take

02:23
