Among them was Hugh Cunningham: <H.C. and his wife were both right [?] Irish. Hugh had been gone so long, his wife had made another engagement and was just about to be married on the evening succeeding Hugh's arrival: and perhaps to a much younger & likelier man. With feelings of bitter disappointment, therefore, she saluted him, coming in -- "Well Hugh, are you alive yet? Hugh picked [piqued] at thereception, crustily resplied [sic], "Yes you dom [sic] fool! don't you see I am?"> Shane here cites Genesis 45:26 -- "And Jacob's heart fainted, for he believed them not." 12CC136
