in consequence of the missive, Quack!, penned by Farmer Duck
I am sure you should be grateful - it is not every young creature that enjoys the notice of their betters. You should thank your farmer, who has taken such an active interest in making you a useful, hardy animal. It would be an obstinate, ungrateful brute, that did not do what its patron and protector wish itó very ungrateful, indeed, considering who and what you are.
Please do not think that indulging yourself in healthful activity during the day, is any reason to be idling away all the evening upon a sofa. 'tis a foolish trick. If it is company you lack, why cannot you come here, and employ yourself as we do? If you have no work of your own, I can supply you.
You should learn to think of other people; and, take my word for it, it is a shocking trick for a young creature to be always lolling upon a sofa.
