Human Development, Disease
Shows the de Tomkyns and Jenkins families on a crowded beach. Mrs de Tomkyns tells her husband to stop their son playing with a 'strange child' and to do so by telling the lie that their child is 'just recovering from scarlet fever'. Mr Tomkyns does so, but the parents of the 'strange child', Mr and Mrs Jenkins, reply that 'It's all right, Sir!' because their child is also just recovering from the disease.
