Excerpt from The Pastures of Heaven by John Steinbeck, first published in 1932 by Brewer, Warren & Putnam:
Mrs. Munroe turned helplessly to the teacher. "What's wrong with him anyway?"
"I think he was embarrassed," said Miss Morgan.
"But why should he be? We were nice to him."
The teacher tried to explain, and became a little angry with them in trying. "I think, you see - why, I don't think he ever knew he was poor until a moment ago."
