t place, I find I can teach! And I lov●e it! I have a class of thirteen girls▓ ranging from twelve to fifteen, and●, if you please, I teach them everything! exc●ept history which Mamma teach▓es.They are most of them ver


y bright, del▓ightful girls, and mind my least word, even lo▓ok.Only once have I had any trouble.I k●ept a girl in for an hour after schoo▓l because she had not pretended to st●udy her lesson that day, and the▓ next day I had a note from her ●Mother to say that she was s●hocked at her daughter being singled out f▓or punishment, and requesting that it ▓should not happen again.I r●eturned a note saying that I also ●requested earnestly that it should not happen a●gain, that M.come to her cla▓ss without

having{310} studied● her lesson; should it happen a second ti●me, the punishment would have to be much more ▓severe.I had no reply to that, but M., who is▓ very bright tho’ very spoiled, t●hought wisest to study in future.A Mot▓her, who had taught in her youth ●and who knew of this passage at arms, wrote m▓e a note of sympathy, saying, “A tea▓cher must be prepared to swallow bu▓ckets full of adders.” This was so ▓very strong and so beyond my experience, th▓at I did not answer it, and t
