Regarding this passage from Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland:
'No, please go on!' Alice said very humbly; 'I won’t interrupt again. I dare say there may be ONE.' 'One, indeed!' said the Dormouse indignantly. However, he consented to go on. 'And so these three little sisters–they were learning to draw, you know–' 'What did they draw?’ said Alice, quite forgetting her promise. 'Treacle,' said the Dormouse, without considering at all this time. Alice did not wish to offend the Dormouse again, so she began very cautiously: 'But I don’t understand. Where did they draw the treacle from?' 'You can draw water out of a water-well,' said the Hatter; 'so I should think you could draw treacle out of a treacle-well–eh, stupid?'
Alice's 'draw' is to 'sketch', and the Hatter's 'draw' is to 'pull' and here lies the pun, I get it.
What I don't understand is the meaning of Alice's question, especially the use of from in the question. Can anyone rewrite her question so that her meaning is clearer (to me)?
+Extra information. Dormouse's draw means to sketch. Alice knows from the earlier part of the story that the sisters are physically in the well- so a tun with a spigot doesn't work. Alice's draw means to sketch also. This we know because the Hatter's draw is to pull, and for the pun to work, their understanding must be different.
