of purse of Mrs. Jones, the lady naturally took Roger for a wrong doer. She
kicked him, jerked him. But as soon as the great lady came to know that the boy
was an uncared, unfade, unloved boy, her motherly affection came to the
surface. She took him to her house to feed him and to take care of him. She
wanted to make him feel that he was not unwanted. The first lesson which he
learnt from the great lady was “trust”. The word “trust”
did not exist in Roger’s dictionary previously. Then he began to realize its
value. After dinner the lady offered him.price of his favorite shoes and
forbade him to snatch anybody’s purse. Thus the boy began to change gradually.
