Susie Dent's Dictation Exercise.

Passage Taken from Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte.


I resisted all the way:  a new thing for me, and a circumstance

which greatly strengthened the bad opinion Bessie and Miss Abbot were disposed to entertain of me.  The fact is, I was a trifle beside myself; or rather OUT of myself, as the French would say:  I was conscious that a moment's mutiny had already rendered me liable to strange penalties, and, like any other rebel slave, I felt resolved, in my desperation, to go all lengths.
