    Question From Jane Walsh (3)

    From Jane Walsh, "Not like this":
    "We kept out of the Old Man's way, not because he was at all alarming, but because we were terrified of being a nuisance, and so forbidden the house."

    I don't get the last part of the sentence, "..., and so forbidden the house." What does it mean?

    Best,
    Nyggus

    Yes - perhaps they are noisy children and he likes a bit of peace!
