Brothers of Pity and Other Tales of Beasts and Men

Overview

"Who made his shroud?" "I," said the Beetle, "With my thread and needle, I made his shroud."-Death of Cock Robin.
It must be much easier to play at things when there are more of you than when there is only one.

Overview

"Who made his shroud?" "I," said the Beetle, "With my thread and needle, I made his shroud."-Death of Cock Robin.
It must be much easier to play at things when there are more of you than when there is only one.
There is only one of me, and Nurse does not care about playing at things. Sometimes I try to persuade her; but if she is in a good temper she says she has got a bone in her leg, and if she isn't she says that when little boys can't amuse themselves it's a sure and certain sign they've got "the worrits," and the sooner they are put to bed with a Gregory's powder "the better for themselves and every one else."
Godfather Gilpin can play delightfully when he has time, and he believes in fancy things, only he is so very busy with his books. But even when he is reading he will let you put him in the game. He doesn't mind pretending to be a fancy person if he hasn't to do anything, and if I do speak to him he always remembers who he is. That is why I like playing in his study better than in the nursery. And Nurse always says "He's safe enough, with the old gentleman," so I'm allowed to go there as much as I like.
