FC: Calpurnia's Memory Album
1: I am the disciplinarian in the house. One thing I taught Jem and Scout is that everything you hear is not true. | Manners are very important to me. When Mr. Cunningham's son came over, I made sure Scout behaved and was polite.
2: I have been the caretaker of the Finch family because Mrs. Finch passed away when Jem and Scout were young.
3: Jem was my stubborn little boy who believed Boo Radley was a psycho. | Every day he resembled his father, Atticus more and more.
4: Nothing Is So Beautiful As Spring | Scout was my tom boy. I could barely get her in a nice dress for the first day of school.
5: I took Jem and Scout to church with me one Sunday while Atticus was away. It was Scout's idea. Even though it was a little scary for them at first, Jem and Scout seemed to enjoy church and had many questions.
6: When Scout did not want to or was not allowed to play with Jem and Dill anymore, I always invited her to hang out with me in the kitchen. I needed company every now and then and Scout was a help.
7: I value my skill in reading. I am one of the few black people who are able to read and I am very proud to say so.
8: Another one of my artifacts was my love. I disciplined Scout because I loved her. I know I was hard on her, but in the end it was for her benefit.
9: I once told Scout, "Hush! Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' company, and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and mighty!"
