Trouble with Apprentice

Reuben King recorded having trouble with his apprentice:

“…In the Morning I had some talk with Stephen concerning his conduct He appeared to be Sorry for What had past &c…Moreover I promised Stephen if He would behave himself I would learn him to read if he wished he answered in the affirmative after some debate I told him unless he left off to use bad language It would be of no Service to him”
