‘I don’t know, I tell you. I does always think poor, the old brain can’t imagine what to do with all that money.’
But after City leave him Moses used to think bout that money, how it would solve all the problems in the world. He used to see all his years in London pile up one on top of the other, and he getting no place in a hurry, and the years going by, and the thought make him frighten sometimes.
