Well, the butcher simply wouldn't give up, he tried four ways of getting around Vicksburg and on the fifth try he got around.
Miss Annie. You see she is accustomed to helping herself from our plates to anything-
Yes, but I'm not accustomed to it.
I fail to see where you have taught her anything yet, Miss Sullivan!
It does you good that's all. It's less trouble to feel sorry for than to teach her anything better isn't it?
It is breakfast in the Keller house and Captain Keller and James are talking about the Civil war. Meanwhile Helen is eating everyone else's food and Annie is observing her with a plan in mind to teach her discipline, obedience and manners.
When Helen tries to eat Annie's food Annie moves her hand away. Helen tries to get Annie's food many times but Annie wont let her. Once Helen starts to flail around and make noises James and Keller stop talking and they all look at Helen and Annie. Kate tries to explain to Annie that Helen is used to eating other people's food, but Annie says that she doesn't agree with that.
Keller wants Annie give Helen pity and let Helen do what she wants, but Annie wants to teach Helen that she can't get whatever she wants and she can't rely on her parents pity. So, they start to argue with eachother.
