    Questions & Answers


    Why was Persome angry with the Bishop?

    Persome, the bishop's sister, was angry with him because he had sold almost everything they had owned. It was because of him that she could not get married. Besides, he was like a little child, too unthinking and unfeeling for his home and belongings. He sold out many valuables for helping the poor people.
