Excerpt from The Haverfordian, Vol. 46: June, 1926 Now any opinion of Miss Foster's usually remained inviolate. One did not gainsay her observations. That is, publicly. And that was chiefly because it was impos sible, Miss Foster often assured herself. This thought never failed to bring a certain warmth into the self sufficient cold of her, and never failed to make her smooth the straight black of her hair to a straighter blackness. Her statements were not assailed, Miss Foster would tell herself with a tilt of her chin, for one reason and one only: they were unassailable. But her sister teachers knew of a more delicate prohibition. Miss Foster was principal of the lower school, and they knew that the school board of St. Leonard's would never brook disrespect.

Miss Primm and Miss Whipple were well aware of this. But they knew at the same time that the school year was over now, and that much could be forgotten during the long vacation, and that after all this was certainly not an occasion one might term public.
