The boys have been split from the girls to begin their night of hard labour. This has started with sanding wood to make coasters that will be sold by the factories for a considerable profit. If the boys work hard then with luck they will receive a piece of stale bread and some mouldy cheese before bedtime. If not, they’ll be lucky to get a cup of dirty water!
