The lady was lying. No girl could earn $2 a week and buy a silk dress. She is definitely lying.
Man v. Man
We should give Mama the calf money
The calf money is ours. Mama does not need to know about it.
Man v. Nature
Don't nobody yell, go slow and quietly climb up to the loft
This shows Man v. Self because Lyddie was thinking about working at a mill. Lyddie was unsure about whether she should work in a factory or not. "That night, again she counted the calf money. The lady had been lying, of course. But still, how had a farmer's daughter bought a silk dress?" (p. 26)
This shows Man v. Man because Lyddie was arguing against Charles about the calf money and whether to give the money to her mother or not. "'She didn't say nothing about the calf,' Lyddie said suddenly in the midst of their sorrowful packing up. 'She got no cause to,' Charles said. 'We never tell her about it.' 'You know, Charlie, that calf is rightfully ours.'" (p. 10)
This shows Man v. Nature because the bear is attacking Lyddie and her family. This also shows Lyddie taking charge of the family and telling them to go up to the loft. "'Don't nobody yell,' she said softly . 'Just back up slow and quiet to the ladder and climb up to the loft.'" (p. 1)
