A Good Lesson For Me
One summer night my mother told me that we were going to have company and that I should act very politely. then when our company came I forgot what mother said and started to fight with my brother and made a great deal of noise. Later one of the ladies came up to me and told me that I should never fight in the presence of company. Then when the company had gone I got a scolding for being so disorderly. I was sent to bed with a good spanking. That was a lesson I shall never forget.
