Ex. XIII, p. 61 a) "Well, you'd better let me take your temperature," said Griffiths.
"It's quite unnecessary," answered Philip irritably.
Philip put the thermometer in his mouth. Griffiths sat at/by the side of the bed
and chattered brightly for a moment, then he took it out and looked at it.
"Now, look here, old man, you stay in bed, and I'll bring old Deacon
(round/around) to have a look at you."
"Nonsense," said Philip. "There's nothing the matter. I wish you wouldn't bother
"But it isn't any bother. You've got a temperature and you must stay in bed. You
will, won't you?"
"You've got a wonderful bedside manner," Philip murmured, closing his eyes
with a smile.

Yes, he did. At least that's what he said to Griffiths.
