Excerpt from Dorsey: The Young Inventor
"That boy will never amount to anything; I sometimes doubt whether he has good sense."
Jacob Dawson flung his hat on the settee at his side, dropped into the rocking-chair, and swayed impatiently back and forth, while the expression of disgust on his face was too plain to be mistaken.
His wife, who in her younger days was a New England school-ma'am, was sitting by the open window, on this pleasant summer afternoon, busy with thread and needle. No woman ever understood her husband better than she.
