“Oh less, sir, I canna explenn mesel,” said Alice, “becaas A’m no mesel, you see.”

“I dunna see,” said da Caterpillar.

“I doot I canna say it in ony clearer wye,” said Alice, aafil ceevilly, “for I canna understaand it mesel ta start aff wi; an bein sae mony different sizes in ee day is laek ta merr a body.”
