around all day long selling the cans and asking for alms in order to feed all of them that are in it.

A traveller and his wife come to our house once every year. They generally come in the month of October, or in the month of November.
The traveller's name is Twomey, and his wife's name is Delia. His trade is repairing umbrellas. He would make a good umbrella for seven and sixpence. He buys the material and all that he wants for the umbrella, and then he makes it himself. He would repair an umbrella for sixpence or a shilling.
The alms his wife expects from my mother are eggs, butter, potatoes, bacon, flour, or milk. They stay on,y for a few hours, and my mother prepares a meal for them. When they have finished, they begin their journey all over again.
