- There are many games both indoor and outdoor by which I amuse myself There are games which can be played by the fireside during the long nights.
One person lights a piece of stick on the fire and says to the others "Will ye buy Briney?" They ask "What can he do?" and the person says "He can reap, sow, plough, mow, and if he dies in your hand you will get tallyho."
