We did sow those dragon's teeth in Randall's ten-acre meadow, and what do you think has come up?
Albert's uncle said, of course, no one could be sure that the dragon's teeth hadn't come up in the good old-fashioned way, but that, on the other hand, it was barely possible that both the British and the enemy were only volunteers having a field-day or sham fight, and he rather thought the Cocked-Hatted Man was not a general, but a doctor.
The Forts were still there, dragon's teeth on either bank, and since Elgin couldn't tell whether the Manchoos would let us pass peacefully or blow us to bits, he and Grant had wisely landed eight miles farther up the coast, at the Pehtang, from whence they and the Frogs could march inland and take the Forts from the landward side, if the Chinks showed any disposition to dispute our passage.
But all this is what they call a digression; it has nothing to do with the dragon's teeth I am now narrating.
