Hold My Hand, Priscilla

You just never know what you're going to get from students sometimes.  A test question asked for a summary of the poem "The Courtship of Miles Standish," the part of the poem where John Alden goes to plead Standish's case with Priscilla Mullins.  He is asking for Priscilla's "hand in marriage" for Standish.  One student writes, "Standish asked Alden if he would ask Priscilla to hold Standish's hand."
