On August 13th, 1756, Peter Piper snuck out of his house because he was hungry. He went out slowly and quietly, because he knew if his mother found out, she’d be furious with him. While he was out picking pickled peppers in the enchanted forest, a cat was strolling by. He didn’t see it and it meowed behind him. He got so scared he screamed at the top of his lungs. The forest could have been almost half a mile away from his house and it still woke up his mother. Peter immediately covered his mouth as soon as he realized what had happened. He looked through the bushes to see if his mother had awakened. He saw a light turn on through a window and the front door open. Peter quietly speed-walked through the forest so he could have a straight sprint to the side door of his house. His mother was walking with a lantern on the opposite side of the house. Peter ran as fast as he could before his mother would reach the very back of the house. He ran inside, threw his shoes off, and jumped into bed. After a while, his mother came back inside the house, she went and checked on Peter and showed him what she found in the back yard. Freshly picked pickled peppers.
John Singleton Copley
John Copley was a famous portrait painter that started at a young age. He's famous for his most popular portraits of Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. He was born July 3, 1738 in Massachusetts. His first painting was when he was 14, after his step-father died. When Boston became progressively worse, Copley left the country and established a home in England. He settled in London in 1776 for exhibiting a painting called "The Boy With The Squirrel." Copley became a professional portrait painter long before he was of age. Copley sailed from Boston in June 1774, leaving his mother, wife, and children in Henry Pelham's charge. He left to start a new life in London. Unfortunately, he died September 9, 1815, because the trip believed to take 60 years and so Copely became 60 years older.
