Also, Amaryllis and Marian talk briefly during her piano lesson--Amaryllis asks if she 'can' get a glass of water, and Marian corrects her ("'May' I get a glass of water?") and again when Amaryllis asks if she 'can' play her crosshand piece.

I would argue that the conversation between Marian and her mother counts as well. It begins by talking about Professor Hill, but moves on to the library and education.
