She an' you's different, Mis' Kenyon. She's crazy, an' you aint. Didn't you tell Oliver to pick it up yesterday afternoon? demanded Roland, making a charge upon his father. The poet Whittier writes: They were moving up the main staircase when a loud scream was heard from above, proceeding from one of the insane inmates.
