"Bu aw're loike for t' com back, so aw ventur't my ride, Wonst moor, up' o' th' mersy o' steum ; -Ther'n a gentlemon's pleck, so aw crop i' to insoide, For a shillin' - wheer nobdy con see 'um.":- apparently the hero paid a shilling for seat in a covered carriage for his return journey; implying that he was previously in an open carriage; the sixpenny fare of the title.
