Treasure Island

Now, for instance, you wouldn't think I had had a pious mother - to look at me? . . . but I had - remarkable pious. And I was a civil, pious boy, and could rattle off my catechism that fast, as you couldn't tell one word from another. And here's what it come to, Jim, and it begun with church-farthen on the blessed grave-stones! That's what it begun with, but it went further'n that, and so my mother told me, and predicked the whole, she did, the pious woman!
