His thing is very small and goes to a funny point. It was carved in Greece thousands of years ago. His thing got broken off and later the museum people glued it back on, and you can see the crack where they had to fix it."

The nuns phoned ahead to ask them to lock it up, but they didn't get to it till we arrived.

Agnes asked, "Is it true that if you look at a thing a long time it will get worn out, and that is why things in museums are kept locked up?"

Alone in the museum Agnes did not go directly to the mysterious room. She walked past its open doors without even looking in, and went instead to the Egyptian collection to look at the mummy.
