Then Tabitha Twitchit came down the garden and found her kittens on the wall with no clothes on. She pulled them off the wall, smacked them, and took them back to the house."My friends will arrive in a minute, and you are not fit to be seen; I am affronted," said Mrs. Tabitha Twitchit.She sent them upstairs; and I am sorry to say she told her friends that they were in bed with the measles; which was not true.(The Tale of Tom Kitten, by Beatrix Potter)
