— I was not then, Mr Dedalus said, smiling. Was it the little nuns taught you to be so saucy? Here.
He handed her a shilling.
— See if you can do anything with that, he said.
— I suppose you got five, Dilly said. Give me more than that.
— Wait awhile, Mr Dedalus said threateningly. You're like the rest of them, are you? An insolent pack of little bitches since your poor mother died. But wait awhile. You'll all get a short shrift and a long day from me. Low blackguardism! I'm going to get rid of you. Wouldn't care if I was stretched out stiff. He's dead. The man upstairs is dead.
He left her and walked on. Dilly followed quickly and pulled his coat.
— Well, what is it? he said, stopping." (U8.675)
— Curse your bloody blatant soul, Mr Dedalus cried, turning on him.
The lacquey, aware of comment, shook the lolling clapper of his bell but feebly:
Mr Dedalus stared at him.
— Watch him, he said. It's instructive. I wonder will he allow us to talk.
— You got more than that, father, Dilly said.
— I'm going to show you a little trick, Mr Dedalus said. I'll leave you all where Jesus left the jews. Look, there's all I have. I got two shillings from Jack Power and I spent twopence for a shave for the funeral.
He drew forth a handful of copper coins, nervously." (U10.688)
Mr Dedalus thought and nodded.
- I will, he said gravely. I looked all along the gutter in O'Connell street. I'll try this one now.
- You're very funny, Dilly said, grinning." (U10.701)
He put the other coins in his pocket and started to walk on.
The viceregal cavalcade passed, greeted by obsequious policemen, out of Parkgate.
- I'm sure you have another shilling, Dilly said.
The lacquey banged loudly." (U10.706)
- The little nuns! Nice little things! O, sure they wouldn't do anything! O, sure they wouldn't really! Is it little sister Monica!" (U10.713)
St. James's Gate is the Guinness brewery, leased in 1759 by Arthur Guinness for 9,000 years at £45 per year. It became the largest brewery in Ireland in 1838, and was the largest in the world in 1914. During the 19c. and early 20c., Guinness owned most of the buildings in the surrounding area, including many streets of offices, or housing for employees. The brewery had its own power plant. Although no longer the largest brewery overall, it still is the largest brewery of stout in the world.
Lovely weather we 're having. Yes, indeed. Good for the country. Those farmers are always grumbling." (U10.718)
