In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Amadeo's father sat at the table downstairs and viewed the matter in a different light. Together with his wife he shook in a fit of uncontrollable laughter as he described how the boy's face had reddened. And furthermore, when asked why he was not in school as he should have been, how quick Amadeo had been to invent an excuse. And such a fine excuse! He'd gone to school. He'd not felt well; he'd been excused; and he'd been on his way home."
