Tant’ Sannie goes up into the loft to see what is there, and as she looks down through the trap door, she sees Bonaparte courting Trana. She does not understand Bonaparte’s words, but she knows exactly what he is doing. Bonaparte is soon doused with pickle-water and attacked with a shoulder of mutton, thrown by the angry Tant’ Sannie.
