Biography Edit

Holden's visit Edit

After Holden's expulsion from the school and before the start of the Christmas Break, Mr. Spencer writes him a note to come by his house and see him. Shortly after he arrives, Holden begins to dread the visit as the old teacher begins lecturing about Life and asking him about the previous schools he attended and got expelled from as well.
