Uncle Robson is one of the visitors to the Bloomfields' home that Agnes does not like. Robson does not like Robson because he encourages Tom's enjoyment of torturing animals and birds. Robson also pets and fusses over Mary Ann, making her feel as if she deserves to be petted because she is pretty. It is these traits in both the children that Agnes has tried to squelch during the time she has spent with them.
