Frank Merriwell's Return to Yale
written by "Standish, Burt L., 1866-1945"
...a confounded nasty place!" "I believe you are," admitted Diamond, slowly. "But you must do something." "Suggest something." "Fight him with the weapons he named!" cried the Virginian, hotly. "You can do it, and I know you can get the best of him. I haven't forgotten our little duel. Not much! Why, Merriwell, you disarmed me twice! You can do the same trick with him." "Perhaps not."

He's from the South. He wouldn't blow if you pinked him for keeps." "I think you are right about that. Well, Jack, there's no telling what I may be driven into. If I have to meet him in a duel, I shall call on you to act as my second." "You may depend on me. I'll serve you with great satisfaction. Call him out, Merry—call him out!" ...
