No, I just want your promise that you wont ask Mr Silverdale to Brighton, said Alice, unmoved by this withering sarcasm.

Dont be so optimistic. I may die instead.Apparently the breast-plate was not to be taken off just yet. She answered him as she had not answered him for many weeks.{257}

Delicious! said Alice, beginning to be naughty with her pomegranates.You are rather late, he said.
