Franz learned that it was the last lesson in French that M. Hamel would teach them. From the following day, they will be taught only German. Then he felt sorry for not learning and memorizing his lessons accurately. His books, which appeared trouble and a burden at the initial stage were now good old friends. His feelings about M. Hamel also improved. He forgot all about his ruler and how irritable he was. He forgot all the bitterness about the teacher and developed a good feeling for the teacher.
