“Samuel Temple is a small healthy but shy boy...” he could say the words “blue” and “no” for yes,  I guess as in yes I know this or this I know. And he said “here” instead of there and “there” for here, “mine” for yours and “yours” instead of mine. Samuel was a dreamer with a nack for losing time. See Samuel was confused, slow but sweet. His words were wrong and he was clumsy on his feet. But he smiled and was polite, happy to do what was right. Perhaps if he were Thomas he would be better because Thomas would be new, and perhaps Thomas knew how to be clever.
