Excerpt From The Book

There’ll be a risk, no matter who we get. But I’ll feel easier in my mind and sleep sounder at nights if we get a born Canadian.’ So in the end we decided to ask Mrs. Spencer to pick us out one when she went over to get her little girl.

We heard last week she was going, so we sent her word by Richard Spencer’s folks at Carmody to bring us a smart, likely boy of about ten or eleven.

We decided that would be the best age-old enough to be of some use in doing chores right and young enough to be trained up proper. We mean to give him a good home and schooling.

We had a telegram from Mrs. Alexander Spencer today — the mail-man brought it from the station — saying they were coming on the five-thirty train tonight.

So Matthew went to Bright River to meet him. Mrs. Spencer will drop him off there. Of course, she goes on to White Sands station herself.”

Mrs. Rachel prided herself on always speaking her mind; she proceeded to speak it now, having adjusted her mental attitude to this amazing piece of news.

” Well, Marilla, I’ll just tell you plainly that I think you’re doing a mighty foolish thing — a risky thing, that’s what. You don’t know what you’re getting.

You’re bringing a strange child into your house and home and you don’t know a single thing about him nor what his disposition is like nor what sort of parents he had nor how he’s likely to turn out.

and his wife up west of the Island took a boy out of an orphan asylum and he set fire to the house at night-set it on purpose, Marilla — and nearly burnt them to a crisp in their beds.

And I know another case where an adopted boy used to suck the eggs – they couldn’t break him of it. If you had asked my advice on the matter.
