It was so long since they had had enough to eat

"Food gives heart," say the Lancashire people; and the next day Mary made time to go and call on tiffany rings Mrs. Wilson, according to Margaret's advice. She found her quite alone, and more gracious than she had been the last time Mary had visited her. Alice was gone out, she said.
"She would just step up to the postoffice, all for no earthly use. For it were to ask if they hadn't a letter lying there for her from her fosterson Will Wilson, the ailorlad."
"What made her think there were a letter?" asked Mary.
" Why yo see, a neighbour as has been in Liverpool, tolled us Will's snip were come in. Now he said last time he were in Liverpool,"he d ha' come to ha' seen Alice, but his ship had but a week holiday, and hard work for the men in that time, too. So Alice makes sure he ' come this, and has had her hand behind her ear at every noise in th' street, thinking it were him. And today she were neither to have nor to hold, Horn Barton.but off she would go to th post, and see if

"No," replied Mary, blushing scarlet. "How is he?"
"I cannot justly say how he is, seeing he's at Halifax; but he were very well when he wrote last Tuesday. Ilan ye heard o' his good luck?"
Rather to her disappointment, Mary owned she had heard of the sum his master had paid him for his invention.
" Well I and did not Margaret tell you what he'd done wi' it? It's just like him though, ne'er to say a word about it. Why, when he were paid what does he do, but get his master to help him to buy an income for me and Alice. He had her name put down for her life; but, poor thing, she'll not be long to the fore, I'm thinking. She's sadly failed of late. And so, Mary, yo see, we 're two ladies o' property. It's a matter o' twenty pound a year, they tell me.
