after Mrs Packletide had fired the shot? Why did Miss Mebbin make this comment? How did Mrs Packletide react to this comment?
Answer: The comment which Miss Mebbin made after Mrs. Packletide had fired the shot was "How amused everyone would be if they knew what really happened?"
Miss Mebbin made this comment because she wanted to take advantage of the fact that Mrs. Packletide had actually killed a goat instead of the tiger. She wanted to blackmail Mrs. Packletide and make more money.
Mrs. Packletide was very annoyed to hear the comment because she didnot
want to accept this reality. Yet she was convinced that since both the villagers and Miss Mebbin had been paid, they would keep mum.
