A School For My Village Quotes

First they done a lecture on temperance; but they didnt make enough for them both to get drunk on.

Another time they tried to go at yellocution; but they didnt yellocute long till the audience got up and give them a solid good cussing, and made them skip out.

A little group of thatched cottages in the middle of the village had an orchard attached; and I remember well the peculiar purity of the blue sky seen through the white clusters of apple blossom in spring. I remember being moonstruck looking at it one morning early on my way to school. It meant something for me; what, I couldn't say.
