Look inside the book:
To hear most schoolmasters talk you would think that they never did wrong in their lives; and, of course, they will tell you that when they pg 20 went to school they never used to talk, and they never got the stick; but whether they used to talk in school or not I do not know. ...pg 35Ten Brief Ones.—'The Chartists were men who compelled King John to sign Magna Charta.'—'The Luddites were shells fired by the Boers.'—'Sir Joseph Chamberlain invented fiscal policy, and generally wears an orchard in his coat.'—'By the Salic Law no woman can become King.'—'Wat Tyler was the leader of the Pheasants' Revolt.'—'The Channel Islands consist of Jersey, Gansey, Alderman, and Shark.'—'Quid pro quo means paying a sovereign for goods of the given value!'—'Poetry is when every line begins with a capital letter.'—'Parliament is a place where they go up to London to talk about Birmingham!'—'The principal parts of the eye are the pupil, the moat, and the beam.' ...Parental Rage.—'If you please A—— B—— what made you not give F—— C—— his ticket on Friday for he had been 10 times so he ought to have had it so if you please dont to give him it on Monday morning i shall go farther to work with it. for i think i know more about school then you do for i pg 95 when their long before you did he as been to school all the week so he as earnt his ticket so if you dont give it to him by fair means you shall by foul so you can please yourself for you are not master nor misstres yet and i dont think that ever you will be we have to pay rates so we have to pay part for the school and it was down right a shame that he was not put up when the others was for he is always at school wet or fine bad or well he never stop away their was never such teachers as you had to teach me when i went to school they know which way to teach a child and that is more than you do if he his not put up before long he shall go to another school for he does reading and writing very well at home at night so by that means he must do it good at school. so if he dont bring his ticket home with him on Monday dinner time you can look for some body to make you give it up for it was not in your place at all to keep it i know school rules.'
