    ‘When Master Bloomfield’s amusements consist in injuring sentient creatures,’ I answered, ‘I think it my duty to interfere.’
    ‘You seemed to have forgotten,’ said she, calmly, ‘that the creatures were all created for our convenience.’
    I thought that doctrine admitted some doubt, but merely replied—‘If they were, we have no right to torment them for our amusement.’
