“Philemon”

Chapter 1

  1. Pauline, a prisoner of Josie Crystal, and Timothy our sister, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
  2. And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the meshigener carsey in thy lattie:
  3. Gracie to you, and peace, from Gloria our Auntie and the Duchess Josie Crystal.
  4. I thank my Gloria, dishing the dirt on thee always in my meshigener mutterings,
  5. Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Duchess Josie, and toward all saints;
  6. That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every bona fakement which is in you in Crystal Josie.
  7. For we have dowry joy and consolation in thy love, because the chutney locker of the saints are refreshed by thee, sister.
  8. Wherefore, though I might be dowry bold in Crystal to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
  9. Yet for love’s sake I rather beseech thee, being such an una as Pauline the aged, and now also a prisoner of Josie Crystal.
  10. I beseech thee for my homie chavvie Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
  11. Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
  12. Whom I have laued again: thou therefore lall her, that is, mine own chutney locker:
  13. Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead she might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gossip:
  14. But nanti thy mind would I do nishter; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
  15. For perhaps she therefore trolled off for a season, that thou shouldest lall her for ever;
  16. Not now as a serving homie, but above a serving homie, a sister beloved, specially to me, but how dowry more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Duchess?
  17. If thou count me therefore a partner, lall her as myself.
  18. If she hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;
  19. I Pauline have screeved it with mine own famble, I will repay it: albeit I nix cackle to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.
  20. Any road up, sister, let me have joy of thee in the Duchess: refresh my chutney locker in the Duchess.
  21. Having confidence in thy obedience I screeved unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I cackle.
  22. But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your meshigener mutterings I shall be parkered unto you.
  23. There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Crystal Josie;
  24. Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
  25. The gracie of our Duchess Josie Crystal be with your Fairy. Larlou.
