'Thought this might be of interest to someone. It is from a book Quaker Anecdotes 1946 Wallingford, Pa. by Poley:
CHAPTER XI,YOUNG FRIENDS, page 45 When Benjamin Hallowell (from The Autobiography of Benjamin Hallowell, pp.7-8)was a boy, he once tried to avoid school by hiding his hat and then telling his mother that he could not find it. His mother got her black silk bonnet, and said, "Thee can wear this today," and began to tie it on. He exclaimed, "Oh, mother, I think I can find my hat." But she kept on tying the stings of the bonnet. "I am sure I can find it, mother; it is in the dough-trough." He went to the dough-trough and got his hat and said, "Here it is, mother; please take this bonnet off," which she did. Ways of raising bread seem to date more than ways of raising boys.
