But it was aggravating, wasn't it, Johnnie, "turning to his babyship," to give mamma's darling a very, very horrible name, and have water poured on his sweet little head by a naughty, wicked, Irish Romish priest.

"Why, laws, honey, 'bout de debblish plot as my lordship and dat whited saltpeter and de shamwalley plotted ag'in her -- ag'in her, my own dear babyship -- ladyship, I meant to say."
And you her a-plotting of your deblish plots agin my own dear babyship -- I mean my ladyship, as is like my own dear baby!
I dunno nuffin 'bout my poor dear babyship -- ladyship, I mean; only my head is so 'fused!
