Tom “ I am the main character in the book “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”. My name is Tom. I hope you like to read about my adventures. I live with my Aunt Polly, my sister Mary and my brother Sid.”
Aunt Polly “ I’m Tom’s aunt. My name is Polly. Tom lives with his sister and brother in my house. I love them very much.”

Приложение 1.

Сценка « Разговор Марка Твена с друзьями»
The first man: I have just returned from a trip to the mountains. The air in these mountains was very clear. In many places the echo of a voice came back five times stronger than the original voice.

The second man: That is nothing. In Colorado in many places the echo of a voice spoken in the morning comes back in the afternoon.

Mark Twain: Listen! The echoes you have told about are very unusual. But in a small church in Hannibal where I was born there is an echo more unusual even than these.

The first man: What is so strange about the echo there?
Mark Twain: Well, I’ll tell you. If one says in a loud voice Good morning, How are you? The echo comes back after a moment very clearly: Very well, thanks. And how are you?

Юмористические истории:
Pupil1. Once Mark Twain was fishing. A stranger came along and asked him, “ Any luck?

Mark Twain thought a while and said ”By the way, do you know who I am” “No”, replied the fishing inspector. “Well, I’m the biggest liar in this place”, said Mark Twain.
Pupil2: Mark Twain often received letters and photos from men who had been told they looked like him. One was from Florida and the man in the photo was so much like Mark Twain that the writer answered him: “My dear sir, I thank you very much for your letter and photo. We are so like each other that I am sure that if you stood before me in a mirrorless frame, I could shave by looking at you.

Swarm around her mouth.

She was standing in the door

Her shoes and stockings in her hand

Her feet all over the floor.
