Certainly it is a very remarkable illness, for in the night Pat is favoured by a visit from a pair of angels-Angel Peter and Angel John. What is more, they turn out to be very Irish angels, and very sporting angels, too. So much so that they allow him three chances to settle up old scores before morning. It is an offer no Irishman could refuse...
