"My dear Taplow I have given you exactly what you deserve no less and no more"
What was that Crocker-Harris said to you?Just er--repeat it again,would you
Not at least like him
Oh no, cut the Crock- Mr Crocker Harris? i don't think it's ever been done in the whole time he's been here.he'd probably follow me home if i had done it
well he's ten minutes late.Why don't you cut? you can still play golf
I must admit I evvy him,the effect he seems to have on you boys.You all seem scared to death of him.what does he do-beat you all or something
Look,what time did Crocker Harris tell you to be here?
well of course i won't mention names but I know most masters think we don't understand a thing-but,sir you're different you're young -comparitevely and your're science
Good lord he's not a sadist like one or two of other
like one or two of other?
Good Lord! what are our schools coming to
Anyway the Crock isn't sadist.He never showed feelings.He's all shrivelled up inside a nut and seems to hate people.Its funny i don't know any other master not being liked.But in spite of everything I still like him and sometimes I think he sees it and shrivels up even more
I'm sure you're exaggerating
No sir I'm not.In form he made one of his classical jokes.No one laughed as nobody understood .Still I knew he'd meant as funny so out of politeness i laughed .Suppose I make a joke,now you laugh
"Taplow-you laugh at my little joke , I noticed.I must confess that I am pleased at the advance your latin has made since you have understood can explain to the rest of the form so they can too share your pleasure
Come along Taplow do not be selfish as to keep a good joke to yourself.Tell the others
