"'And as parliament is usually dead slow,' added the Captain, 'it is much to be wished that Paddy, in the meanwhile, would take the affair [of Otter fishing] into his own hands : he is just the boy to do it well.'

'I do not think even Paddy could do much in protecting this lake,' said the Parson : 'it is so lonely, that a man might fish for a month here without being seen. The whole place looks as if the fairies were its sole inhabitants.'

'I should think that the fairies who belong to this lake must be of the decidedly serious class,' said the Captain."
