Three Men in a Boat Class 9th-Chapter 3 Summary and Quick revision Notes English


The three friends met next morning. Harris asked Jerome to get paper and pencil and George to get the grocery list. Harris reminded Jerome of his Uncle Podger who used to take the responsibility of everything and involve every family member in the work.

Once, he was hanging a picture on the wall. He send the girl to get the nails, boy to tell her the size, Will to get the hammer, Tom to get the ruler, step ladder and the kitchen chair. Jerome would have go to Mr. Goggles for spirit level and Maria had to hold the light. He would lift up the picture, drop it, and cut his finger while saving the frame glass. He could not find handkerchief because it was in the coat and he was sitting on it. He would shout on everyone, “Oh, you can give it up. I have found it myself now.” At last, he was able to hang the picture on the wall at midnight and the wall would look as it had been smoothed down with a rake. He would then feel that job was done easily and extremely well. Jerome thought that Harris would be exactly like Uncle Podger when he grew up.

The first list was too long so they made another based on what they really use. George said that a person should take with him one or two friend, a cat, a dog, enough food, sufficient clothes and drinks which make the boat easier to pull. George suggested to take a boat with cover instead of taking a tent. George and Harris loved early morning swim but Jerome hated it.

Later, Harris and Jerome regret that they believed George as he knows nothing about washing clothes.
