"Gimme a chaw'v tobacker, Hank."

"Cain't- I hain't got but one chaw left. Ask Bill."

They get all their chawing by borrowing- they say to a fellow, "I wisht you'd len' me a chaw, Jack, I jist this minute give Ben Thompson the last chaw I had"- which is a lie, pretty much every time; it don't fool nobody but a stranger; but Jack ain't no stranger, so he says-

"You give him a chaw, did you? So did your sister's cat's grandmother. You pay me back the chaws you've awready borry'd off'n me, Lafe Buckner, then I'll loan you one or two ton of it, and won't charge you no back intrust, nuther."

"Well, I did pay you back some of it wunst."
