Ill not stand it, that I wont, Master Digby. To think that you, a young gentleman who has plenty to eat and drink of everything thats nice, and more than enough, too, should come and put your fingers through the paper into my jam pots, which IveMoreIll not stand it, that I wont, Master Digby. To think that you, a young gentleman who has plenty to eat and drink of everything thats nice, and more than enough, too, should come and put your fingers through the paper into my jam pots, which Ive just been and nicely tied down, and all for mischiefs sake, its not to be borne, let me tell you.

Youve been and eaten up a whole pot of raspberry jam, and better than half a one of greengage. I wonder you are not sick with it. If you ever do it again, Ill leave your honoured fathers service sooner than submit to such behaviour, that I will-remember, Master Digby.

These exclamations were uttered by Mrs Carter, the housekeeper at Bloxholme Hall, the residence of Mr Heathcote, the representative of one of the oldest families in the county. The culprit thus addressed, who had been caught in flagrante delicto, stood before her with very sticky fingers, his countenance, however, wearing anything but an expression of penitence.

I like jam, and you dont give me enough in my puddings, was the only excuse he deigned to offer for his conduct. Youll go without it altogether, Master Digby, let me tell you, retorted Mrs Carter. She was the only person in the establishment who ventured to thwart the young gentleman, though he did not love the old lady the worse for that.
