Aren't we going on with

the painting, Branwell?

No, I'm not in the mood.

Don't be foolish, Emily.

You know by now that Branwell is never in

the mood to finish what he has begun.

You see, Emily? Already she has

started to talk like a governess.

Well, wait until you've been

one for a few months.

Then we shall see whether you are so

anxious to finish what you've begun.


Do you know why Charlotte and Anne are

undertaking their unpleasant occupation?

I've already explained our

reasons to Branwell, Emily.

What dark mystery is this?

What are you hiding from me?

Nobody is hiding anything.

Oh your schoolgirl secrets

bore me. I'm of to The Bull.

Emily, take my things home will you.

No, Branwell.

You take your own things home with you.

I'll bring them.

Good old Emily.

I sometimes wonder if

you really understand him.

The trouble is Charlotte, I think

I understand him only too well.

For what we are about to receive may

The Lord make us truly thankful.


Am I to understand Charlotte you've

been asking charity at Thornton Hall?

Oh, has it come?

Yes, the reward of your

shame is there, Charlotte.

Thrown at me for all the parish to see.

Yes, there it is.

You may each take a quarter.

I take a third.

And I take it now.

Emily! You pirate.

I need some of this for Stone Gap.

I mean to lead a very full life.

The recording of which, will

require a great deal of paper.

And in the peace which will

inevitable follow your departure.

I intend to write a history of

stupendous length .. so!

Be seated!

I trust we'll overlook Emily's

unseemly conduct, Papa.


It is your conduct that concerns me

chiefly at the moment, Charlotte.

The prohibitive cost of paper ..

Prevents us from buying the books we need

for our "scribblings" as you call them.
