Mrs. Freeman would not give me leave, and she would be only annoyed at my making such a foolish proposition.""No. You are to take off that unsuitable afternoon costume you are now wearing, and put on a neat print dress for your morning work."
"I won't eat any dinner in this horrid room," she said; "I think I have been treated shamefully. If my dinner is sent to me I won't eat it."
