    2. I have some telephoning to do first.
    3. By the way, Jim, don’t forget to make that telephone call.
    4. She found a glass-telephone booth.
    5. Guy telephoned Mrs. Carter from a glass-walled booth while Rosemary, outside, tried to lip-read.
    6. How’s for giving me a break?
    7. We were talking until my nickels ran out.
    8. We’re running out of petrol.
    9. The doctors have given him up.
    10. I had given you up.
    11. Susan hung up as the dime fell into the coin-return box.
    12. He picked up the phone and dialed.
    13. I’m trying Gil and Louise but their line keeps being busy.
    14. There was a silence on the line.
    15. He was still holding his palm over the mouthpiece.
    16. I have gone off motoring.
    17. I caught my foot on a root.
    18. The lock won’t catch.
    19. I try to get you by telephone.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,
