To teach them properly seems impossible. I am the parent of a brace of barbarians. Yet they are dear sweet boys loving and brave. They despise meanness and never tell lies." "Then you are the mother of nobles. They will be men to-morrow. Plato truly says the boy is the most unmanageable of animals. Boys have an element of the cruel and ferocious. But we need not take this much to heart.
