HOMEWORK

"Drop that glass and take the another one."he whispered.

He gave remaining glass of Whisky to Henry,just as the clock began to strike in the midnight.

Henry emplited glass,his face grew whiter and whiter.

"boys."he said."I am feeling sick.I want to lie down ."

Henry was asleep almost before the words were out of his mouth.In a moment,his two friends had picked him up and carried him into the bedroom,made close the door and came back.They seemed to be getting ready to leave.

So i said,"please don't go,gentlemen."She will not know me.I'm a stranger to her.

They looked at each other.

"His wife has been dead for 19 years."Tom said.

"Dead?"I whispered.

"That or worse."he said."She went to see her parents about 6 months after she get married.On the way back on the saturday evening in June,when she was almost here,indian was captured her.No one ever saw her again.Henry lost his mind,he thinks she is still alive.When June comes,he thinks she has gone on her trip to see her parents.Then he began to wait her to come back.He gets out that old letter.And we come around to visit,so he can read to us.On the saturday night,she is supposed to come home,we come here to be with him.We put a sleeping drag in his drink,so he will sleep through the night.Theh he is all right for another year."

Joe picked out his hat and his guitar."We have done for this every June for 19 years,the first year,there were 27 of us,now,just 2 of us are left."

He opened the door and pretty little house.

And two old men disappeared into the darkness of the Stanislaus.
