What did any wrote in her essay on the topic an incorrigible Chatterbox...?

Dear Student

There is no specific mention as to what was the content of that essay. However, the circumstances that led to the writing of the essay are given below.

Mr Keesing was very angry with Anne for talking in the class and as a punishment he asked her to write an essay on 'A Chatterbox' Anne displayed her sense of humour and argued that talking was a female trait. She continued to talk and Mr Keesing attempted to embarrass her by assigning her a second essay on 'An Incorrigible Chatterbox'. He failed again and asked her to write an essay entitled 'Quack, Quack, Quack, said Mistress Chatterbox' Anne wrote a poem about a duck family and how the ducklings were bitten to death by the father because they quacked too much. Mr Keesing understood the joke and allowed Anne to talk in the class  without giving her extra homework.

Anne was disturbed by her father's reproaches for going upstairs to see Peter too often. She finally decided to write everything in a letter because she felt she hardly had anything to hide. She reveals to her father how she has been pretending to put on a brave face when she has been feeling morose and lonely inside. She told him she was the only person she felt accountable towards and accused everybody for turning their backs on her. She said there was no point in gentle reproaches to stop her from going upstairs. He would have to expressly forbid her and she made it very clear that she wanted to be left alone. On reading the letter, Otto Frank was deeply disturbed and during his conversation with Anne, started crying. He could not bring himself to believe that his own daughter was accusing him of neglecting her. He later forgave her by burning the letter on the stove.
