"As an animal, Matilda was all right, full of life, vigour, and activity; as an intelligent being, she was barbarously ignorant, indocile, careless, and irrational; and consequently, very distressing to one who had the task of cultivating her understanding, reforming her manners, and aiding her to acquire those ornamental attainments which, unlike her sister, she despised as much as the rest..."anne brontë

Oh there once was a swagman camped in the billabongs, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree; And he sang as he looked at the old billy boiling, 'Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.' Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling, Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag, Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.Banjo (Andrew Barton) Paterson
