Chapter 3 Summary

Valancy eats breakfast with Cousin Stickles and Mrs. Frederick, Valancy's mother. They have the same food and the same conversation as they always do. At breakfast, Valancy asks her mother not to call Valancy by her nickname, Doss, anymore, but to address her as Valancy. After breakfast, Valancy works on a quilt, which Valancy hates to do, but her mother won't allow her to be idle. Valancy goes to her room to retrieve a new thimble and takes 10 minute to read from John Foster's book, but her mother catches her so Valancy returns to her quilt. When Valancy asks her mother to walk to the library, her mother says she just checked out a book a week ago, but Valancy says it was four weeks ago. Mrs. Frederick finally agrees to allow Valancy to go to the store to buy more tea.
