Meeting AnneEdit


When Anne had been sent to Green Gables instead of a boy as anticipated by the Cuthbert siblings, Marilla Cuthbert decided to approach Mrs. Spencer about returning Anne or finding another place for her. Mrs. Spencer suggested Mrs. Blewett, who had been looking for someone to look after her many children. Upon meeting Mrs. Blewett, Anne's response was to immediately ask if any of the Blewett children were twins, which she was dismayed to learn was the case. During Mrs. Blewett's blunt appraisal of Anne and after hearing her intentions for the orphan to serve as little more than Mrs. Blewett's helper, Marilla informed Mrs. Spencer and Mrs. Blewett that she would need time to reconsider letting Anne join Mrs. Blewett's household, but decided to herself that Anne should not go to Mrs. Blewett at all.
