1. __________________________ “I was bored, so I began a letter to Dill. Miss Caroline caught me
                              writing and told me to tell my father to stop teaching me. ‘Besides,’ she
                              said. ‘We don’t write in the first grade, we print. You won’t learn to
                              write until you’re in the third grade.’”

2. __________________________ “Men’s stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning.”

3. __________________________ “Ladies bathed before noon, after their three-o-clock naps, and by
                              nightfall were like soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet
                              talcum.”

4. __________________________ “The misery of that house began many years before Jem and I were
                              born.”

5. __________________________ “Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first
                              knew it. In rainy weather the streets turned to red slop; grass grew on the
                              sidewalks, the courthouse sagged in the square…People moved slowly
                              then. They ambled across the square, shuffled in and out of the stores
                              around it, took their time about everything. A day was twenty four hours
                              long but seemed longer.
