" "How about the camp?" "In phwat way, Mishter Moncure?" "Many men in it?" "I couldna be afther tellin' yez ; but I'm thinkin' not more than twinty min, an' half o' them away most av the toime. " 168 THE RED SWAN'S NECK "Where is Aida's tent located in its relation to the others?" "D'e raymimber the field o' Tim Mecune?" "I know where it is, " Snickerby responded eagerly. "I used t' dig coal over there. " "Well thin, sor, yez'll be raycallin' the place. The tint is located where ye took the coa...l out. The land's fallin' in and it's left a sort av depris- sion in the soide av the hill, a sort av gully ; an' a bit av a shtrame comes out where the moine's tumbled in.
