1 Imperceptibly I became conscious of a change in Biddy, however.
2 I laid down my pen, and Biddy stopped in her needlework without laying it down.
3 I reposed complete confidence in no one but Biddy; but I told poor Biddy everything.
4 "I suppose I must catch it like a cough," said Biddy, quietly; and went on with her sewing.
5 Biddy's first triumph in her new office, was to solve a difficulty that had completely vanquished me.
6 This part of the Course was usually lightened by several single combats between Biddy and refractory students.
7 When my sister found that Biddy was very quick to understand her, this mysterious sign reappeared on the slate.
8 Biddy, who was the most obliging of girls, immediately said she would, and indeed began to carry out her promise within five minutes.
9 Mr. Wopsle's great-aunt conquered a confirmed habit of living into which she had fallen, and Biddy became a part of our establishment.
10 Why it came natural to me to do so, and why Biddy had a deep concern in everything I told her, I did not know then, though I think I know now.
11 Biddy was Mr. Wopsle's great-aunt's granddaughter; I confess myself quiet unequal to the working out of the problem, what relation she was to Mr. Wopsle.
12 Not, however, until Biddy had imparted to me everything she knew, from the little catalogue of prices, to a comic song she had once bought for a half-penny.
13 The felicitous idea occurred to me a morning or two later when I woke, that the best step I could take towards making myself uncommon was to get out of Biddy everything she knew.
14 It may have been about a month after my sister's reappearance in the kitchen, when Biddy came to us with a small speckled box containing the whole of her worldly effects, and became a blessing to the household.
15 Much of my unassisted self, and more by the help of Biddy than of Mr. Wopsle's great-aunt, I struggled through the alphabet as if it had been a bramble-bush; getting considerably worried and scratched by every letter.
16 She had no idea what stock she had, or what the price of anything in it was; but there was a little greasy memorandum-book kept in a drawer, which served as a Catalogue of Prices, and by this oracle Biddy arranged all the shop transaction.
17 In pursuance of this luminous conception I mentioned to Biddy when I went to Mr. Wopsle's great-aunt's at night, that I had a particular reason for wishing to get on in life, and that I should feel very much obliged to her if she would impart all her learning to me.
