Not To Be Bought

A COMMON-COUNCILMAN'S lady paying her daughter a visit at school, and

inquiring what progress she had made in her education, the governess

answered, pretty good, madam, she is very attentive: if she wants

anything it is a capacity: but for that deficiency you know we must

not blame her.--No madam, replied the mother, but I blame you

for not having mentioned it before. Her father can afford his daughter a

capacity; and I beg she may have one immediately, cost what it may.
