Edit-checking Solla Sollew?

I just picked up a new copy of I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew, a childhood favorite of mine, and noticed something curious: I believe that my copy has a line missing on the fourth-to-last page. On the previous page, the doorman is departing ("'Come on along with me', he said as he ran,'and you'll never have any more troubles, young man!'"). The following page in my copy only contains the line:

That's what the man said.

The thing is, I remember a second line there, so it would read:

I'd have no more troubles.
That's what the man said.

My memory is pretty reliable when it comes to this sort of thing (and it fits the meter better), hence my question: does anyone have a copy of Solla Sollew that has my missing line in it, or does everyone's agree with my copy? Thanks!
