Excerpt from Sweet Anne Page
What a lazy boy you are went on Aunt Harriet. Have you no lessons to learn? You learn nothing at Miss Martin's.
Not very much, aunt, said Stephen. She never will answer my questions. I asked her today whether she didn't think Christian in the Pilgrim's Progress a very bad man for running away from his wife, and she called me a wicked boy, and made me stand on the form.
She ought to have given you a good Whipping, sir, said his aunt. What had that to do with your lessons? GO and learn your spelling directly.
He's a very tiresome boy, said his grandmother in her oracular way.
