When the horse saw it he ran as hard as he could all the way to the way to the house. The man put him in the stable and he felt all right. But when he was going in the door he fainted. They say if you ever see anything like that you are sure to faint going in the door.

And the pound will float
I'd rather a guinea than a one
pound note
