Mein lieber He»r Redacktionär:
Der Trubel von we-
I? ge die Kohle-Shvr
tetsch »« nit allein»
mit den Wedesweiler
ich lann auch i
» Sehn Se. wie es Zeit
Attvese wer
als « Ruhl sich seine
Winterkohl! einlege duht. da is der
Preis so ausverschämt hoch gewese,
baß ich gestutzt hen. Bei Galle hen
ich gedenkt, noch mthr kann doch der
Preis nit in die Höhe gehn un wenn
ich denn doch emal so viel bezahle muß,
dann halt ich liewer mei Geld noch
« wenig un duhn keine Interests
verliere.
Bieseids das i« auch in alle Peh
p«rsch gewarnt worde, mer sollt nit
so in die Hurrie mit die Kohle ka^fe
Preis siclse. so daß mer nit bei je
der Schaufel voll sage mußt: »O du
mein, was sin ich gestonge worde!"
Wenn mer so ebbes lese duht, well
dann denkt mer doch, es wär auch
olles in den beste Schehp un mer
könnt später alle Kohle wo mer will
kriege un bräucht kein ausoerschämte
Preis dafür zu bezahle.
Well, der Preis is ja auch gefickst
worde. Di« Apperehtersch hen gesagt
kriegt, wie viel se derse,
was foren Praffitt se sättisfeit sein
müsse un viel dausend patriotische
Herze hen .attibvy!" geruse un hen
Hünds mit sich geschehkt, bikahs se
Kaufe gewart. Well es is ja nit
ganz so komme, wie mer eckspecktet
gehabt hen; das Gowwerhment hat
off Kohrs den Preis gefickst gehabt,
das is gut genug, awwer es hat sich
niemand dran gekehrt. Die Häns
sage, sie wäre fchuhr genug mit den
schmale Praffit zufriede. biekahs je
der Zittisen müßt sein Bitt for die
Kontrie duhn, awwer da wäre die
Lehbererfch, wo drei mal so viel
Wehtsches frage dehte. als was se bie
fohr gehabt hen un es könnt doch
niemand eckspeckte, daß sie ihr sauer
verdientes Geld drauf lege dehte.
Wenn mer -es von den rechte
Stendpeuni angucke duht, dann hen
se ja auch nit so unrecht, un die
kommene Piebels hen ja plentie Geld
die könne bezahle. Der Wahr
duht ja auch keine finf un zwanzig
Jahr dauere un später könne mir auch
Widder tschilpe Kohle taufe.
Ich sin also zu mein Kohldieler
gange un hen gefragt, n.as Kohle
wäre. Er hat gesagt se dehte acht
Dahler die Tonn koste un ich hen
ihn e Order gewwe for zehn Tonns,
das sollte mich enniweg halte bis zum
Spring. Der Mann hat gesagt:
Zehn Tonne Kohe? Mann,
wisse Se nit, daß in die ganze Taun
keine drei Tonne Kohle aufzudrei
we sin? Ich meifelbst hen noch keine
zehn Büschels an Hand." Er hat mich
«rklärt, daß die Rehlrohds arig dei
tschestet wäre un es dehte gar keine
Kohle dorchkoinme.
Well, das sin mich ja ganz schöne
Geschichte gewese. Wie ich heim kom
me sin un hen es die Lizzie, was
meine Alte is, verzählt, da hätte Se
die emal höre solle! Das guckt dich
Widder emal ähnlich hat se gesagt;
wenn annere Leut ihre Kohle ordere,
dann duhst du es enaus schiewe un
verläßt dich immer drauf, was dich
annere sage; jetzt hast du die Be
scheerung. Mitaus Feuer kann ich
nit koche un wenn ich nicks koche,
dann hen mer nicks zu esse, un du
bist ganz alleins dafor zu blehme. For
« paar Dahler zu sehfe. läßt du dei
ne Familie in so en Emberresment
komme. Wenn du bei den Wedes
weiler hocke duhst un eins nach den
annere drinke duhst, dann gibst du
nicks drum, was es koste duht un
wenn der Wedesweiler seine Preise
rehfe duht, dann macht es dich auch
nicks aus; nur an deine Familch da
duhst du nit denke; da is dich jeder
Zent zu viel un da muß gesehft wer
de. Du duhst auch nicks drum gew
we, wenn du deine Gäng triete duhst;
da kannst du arig libberal sein un
wenn du auch dieselbe Zeit weißt, daß
se nur ihren Fonn mit dich hen un
dein Geld wehste duhst. Well, ich
der Herr hockt sich bei oen Mister We
gesorgt."
keine Kohle un duht mit Mätsches
sinke sollt. Die Lizzie hat kein Wort
gesagt, aber ich sin schuhr, se hat ge
denkt, daß ich en großer Esel sin.
