Look inside the book:
'Yes, just that; into a farmer's family, if possible, --and I
know I can make it possible, --and let her be as one of them, work,
play, go barefoot, eat, sleep, be merry--in fact, be what the Lord
intended her to be; and you 'll find out that is something very
different from what she is, if only you 'll hear to me.' ...Soon it
came to be the 'girls of our set' with Hazel; and then there
followed music-lessons, and violin-lessons, and riding-lessons, and

and I knew I ought to bear it--for I do love to be here--and I love
them all, for most of the time they 're lovely to me;--and I don't
think you 've been horrid, Rose, only you did hurt my feelings when
you would n't let me give you the blue silk--and--and it is n't my
fault if I am rich, and it is n't fair not to like me for it '
