Papa notes that Stacey will soon be thirteen, and that he can't take him to the railroad, but he can take him on his rounds in town. He says, "And I want him to know about business...... how to take care of it, how to take care og things when I ain't around." He also says, "..... he's near a man. he's gotta know a man's things. He gootta know how to handle himself."
Mama objects that Stacey is just a boy.
