Evidence

From Ellen Nussey"s reminiscences of her schoolfriends Charlotte Bronte and Mary Taylor: <br/><br/> "A time came that both Charlotte and Mary were so proficient in schoolroom attainments there was no more for them to learn, and Miss Wooler [teacher] set them Blair"s ""Belles Lettres"" to commit to memory. We all laughed at their studies. Charlotte persevered, but Mary took her own line, flatly refused, and accepted the penalty of disobedience, going supperless to bed for about a month before she left school."
