text/plain (45 lines)

Dóich dano, or se.  Ni sechbaid duit, or se, ro gabais chomairchi.  

Doich = comes?
Dano = then/indeed/moreover
Or = said
Se = he

Then [someone] comes, said he.  ?

Ni = neg.
Sechbaid = sech is past/by...
Duit = to/for you (sing.)
Ro = perf. Particle? Or too much/very
Gabais = took, got, seized (3rd. person)
Chomairchi = looks kind of like the verb to fight/battle

Not [?] for you, he said, he took too much [?].

Maybe someone can help it along?

  Thanks for your interest, Elliott.   I'll post the notes on 49-50 later 
today.  Meanwhile, here's the next line.

      I had an exhausting week.  I made a sudden trip to rural Wisconsin 
last Saturday when my Dad got sick.  I drove three hours through a 
snowstorm to get to Minneapolis airport Thursday afternoon, an experience 
which reminded me why I don't live there any more.           Liz 

    Dóich dano, or se.  Ni sechbaid duit, or se, ro gabais chomairchi.
