Like The Copy

Florence B----, a little girl in the Deaf and Dumb Institution at Derby,

was painting in water colours during her leisure hours. She had been

told to be very careful with the card she was painting, and do it

exactly the same as the copy, and to these instructions she strictly

adhered. When the card was finished she took it to the head master, who

at once noticed a black spot painted on a bright flower. On being told

she had spoilt the card with doing this, she replied "But it's like the

copy," and at once produced it, when it was found that by some means an

ink spot had got on the copy.
