A teacher is talking to another teacher and tells her that Mr Tharkell was supposed to pick up Mrs Baines from a railway station.
He promised to pick her up lastto come away early and do a good turn.
night at eight; that’s the last train in from Cambridge on
Sunday. Sunday morning one of his horses went down
with the staggers or the glanders or something, so he
rang up Uncle Eric and asked whether he ’d oblige by
“just running in” and fetching her. Uncle Eric was
otherwise engaged, so he shoved it on to me; I was going
to be in Selbury anyway, and it wouldn’t hurt me for once
Does "just running in" mean something like "pop out over there"?
Does by "come away" she mean "leaving home earlier"?
So she would be in Selbury doing something and she would finish doing it earlier and go and pick up her from the railway station?
