1 Mother was sure that a trip to the sea … help her husband a lot.
2 At first the daughters thought they … do anything for their dad.
3 Their mother … make a sensible suggestion.
4 Both mother and Mary … believe Agnes was serious about becoming a governess.
Through all our troubles, I never but once heard my mother complain of our want of money. As summer was coming on, she said to Mary and me, ‘What a desirable thing it would be for your papa to spend a few weeks at a watering place. I am convinced the sea air and the change of scene would be of great service to him. But then, you see, there’s no money,’ she added, with a sigh. We both wished that the thing might be done, and sorry that it could not. ‘Well, well!’ said she, ‘it’s no use complaining. Possi- bly something might be done after all. Mary, you are a beautiful drawer. What do you say to doing a few more pictures in your best style, getting them framed, and trying to sell them to some liberal picture dealer?’
‘Mamma, I should be delighted if you think they could be sold; and for anything worthwhile.’
‘It’s worthwhile trying, however, my dear; you do the drawings, and I’ll try to find a purchaser.’
‘I wish I could do something,’ said I.
‘You, Agnes! well, who knows? You draw pretty well, too.’
‘But I have another scheme in my head, mamma, and have had long, only I did not like to mention it.’
‘Indeed! Tell us what it is.’
‘I should like to be a governess.’
My mother gave an exclamation of surprise, and laughed. My sister dropped her work in astonishment, exclaiming, ‘You a governess, Agnes!’
‘Well! I don’t see anything so very extraordinary in it. I am so fond of children. Do let me, mamma!’
‘But, my love, you have not learned to take care of yourself yet: and young children require more experience to manage than elder ones.’ Abridged from ‘Agnes Grey’ by Ann Bronte
31 Read the extract from the book Ihe Wedding Day by Cathreen Elliott and complete the sentences with could / couldn't, was able to / wasn't able to.
David had brought me to Onslow Gardens [CGJ to meet his only living relative, explaining that she was a bit dippy and rather bohemian. Expecting a sweet old thing in a chaotic flat full of cats, I'd dressed accordingly. Stripy socks, baggy canvas trousers and a patchwork jumper had been the order of the day, and I'd bounced up the steps to find a very grand old lady in grey flannel trousers and a black polo neck, opening the door to the largest London house I'd ever seen. One hand held the doorknob, whilst the other rested on a rifle, nestling in the umbrella stand. As she'd towered over me, regarding me with an icy look, I'd nearly fallen over with shock. David explained later that the air rifle had belonged to her husband and she always opened the door with her hand on it to discourage intruders. Believe me, she didn't need to. Despite a rapidly fading memory, she still, at eighty-odd, had the power to
scare the pants off anyone.
Despite or perhaps because of the generation gap, my daughter Flora and Gertrude got on famously and we often popped in to see her after school. Flora'd breeze into the house in a way I was totally incapable of, give Gertrude a smacking kiss, then make straight for the drawing room where the photograph albums were kept. Putting herself down on the carpet and with Gertrude bent over her, she'd examine them, wanting to know exactly who everyone was, and prompting Gertrude if she forgot."
