Why Aunt Polly does not apologize for hitting Tom?
Answers 1Add Yours
Aunt Polly didn't apologize because she didn't want to admit to being wrong.
Then her conscience reproached her, and she yearned to say something kind and loving; but she judged that this would be construed into a confession that she had been in the wrong, and discipline forbade that. So she kept silence, and went about her affairs with a troubled heart.
