2 It was good practice, he said, and when the beginners improved, anyone would pay.
3 Aunt March likes to have us pay her the compliment of coming in style, and making a formal call.
4 I'm sure it's no pleasure to me to go today, but it's a debt we owe society, and there's no one to pay it but you and me.
5 Jo let Laurie win the game to pay for that praise of her Beth, who could not be prevailed upon to play for them after her compliment.
6 I like to pay my debts, so I know you will allow 'the old gentleman' to send you something which once belonged to the little grand daughter he lost.
