Adam Bede

Adam gave his arm, and they walked on without uttering a word, till they came
where the basket and the tools lay.
"I must pick up the tools, sir," Adam said. "They're my brother's. I doubt they'll be
rusted. If you'll please to wait a minute."
Arthur stood still without speaking, and no other word passed between them till
they were at the side entrance, where he hoped to get in without being seen by
any one. He said then, "Thank you; I needn't trouble you any further."
"What time will it be conven'ent for me to see you to-morrow, sir?" said Adam.
"You may send me word that you're here at five o'clock," said Arthur; "not
before."
"Good-night, sir," said Adam. But he heard no reply; Arthur had turned into the
house.
