Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones was walking to her house at midnight from a long day at work.
When she was walking a little boy runs behind her and tries to run off with her purse. The boy couldn't take her purse,because he fell backwards.
The lady asked the boy If she turned him loose will he run. He said yes so she didn't let him go. The lady decided to take the boy home and wash his face and feed him.
Mrs. Luella asks the boy what is his name. He replied back with "Roger". She asks why he tried to steal the purse . Roget says he wanted some shoes. Mrs. Luella ends up giving him money for the shoes.
When they got done eating Mrs. Luella rushed roger out the door. She told him "goodnight! Behave yourself!"
Roger wanted to say "thank you". He started to say "Thank You ma'am,but Mrs Luella closed the door before he could get the words out his mouth.
