    shall ... think you acted ...

    Hi

    A teacher says to a schoolboy:

    Meanwhile you and I will keep this between ourselves, shall we I think you acted rightly, and bravely, Sydney.

    Does it just mean: I think you acted rightly and bravely?

    It's punctuated incorrectly, which distorts the meaning. Try it like this: "Meanwhile you and I will keep this between ourselves; shall we? I think you acted rightly and bravely, Sydney."
