He has a secret code; for sometimes Barker and his brothers have to hold their own against organised, Englishspeaking society : they can exchange conversation in slang and hint, spoken fast, and incomprehensible as Hungarian to the man or woman of polite pretensions. Barker has his own financial jargon. If the Stock Exchange can speak mysteriously of "Clo-to-clo" and "At the mark", Barker can refer to "Forty tosheroons" - or "Six o' Clods".
