( 6 )

Overview

"I don't know what I can do with you, I'm sure!" declared Mistress Stoddard, looking down at the small girl who stood on her door-step gazing wistfully up at her.
"A man at the wharf said that you didn't have any little girls," responded the child, "and so I thought--"

"A man at the wharf said that you didn't have any little girls," responded the child, "and so I thought--"
"'Twas Joe Starkweather told you, I'll be bound," said Mrs. Stoddard. "Well, he's seven of his own to fend for."
"Seven little girls?" said Anne Nelson, in an almost terror-stricken voice, her dark eyes looking earnestly into the stern face that frowned down upon her. "And what would become of them if their mother should die, and their father be lost at sea?"
"Sure enough. You have sense, child. But the Starkweathers are all boys. Well, come in. You can take your bundle to the loft and leave it, and we'll see what I can find for you to do. How old are you?"

"Yes, indeed, Mistress Stoddard; I did a deal to help my father about the house. He said I could do as much as a woman. I can sweep out for you, and lay the table and wash the dishes, and bring in the wood and water, and--" there came a break in the little girl's voice, and the woman reached out a kindly hand and took the child's bundle.

    Very cute; short and sweet

    Alice Turner Curtis wrote in the early 20th century, mostly books for children, about characters in the Revolutionary War or Civil War eras. This one is about a little girl in the years just before the Revolutionary War. It's very sweet, definitely a good "beginning reader" book.
