2 I used to be scared of him all the time, he tanned me so much.
3 I got so down-hearted and scared I did wish I had some company.
4 Lots of the women and girls was crying and taking on, scared most to death.
5 I'm at my wit's end, and I don't mind acknowledging 't I'm right down scared.'
6 She was about sixteen, and very sweet and gentle looking, but awful pale and scared.
7 Jim never asked no questions, he never said a word; but the way he worked for the next half an hour showed about how he was scared.
