Patty Fairfield by Carolyn Wells

Patty Fairfield stood awaiting her father's inspection. He saw a slender, graceful girl, a Southern blonde of the purest type. Her pretty golden hair would gladly have hung in curly masses. Her eyes were blue, deep and twinkly and the rest of her face was as pretty and sweet as soft girlish contours and a perfect complexion could make it.

About the Author

Carolyn Wells (1862 - 1942) was an American writer and poet. Wells had been married to Hadwin Houghton, the heir of the Houghton-Mifflin publishing empire founded by Bernard Houghton. Wells also had an impressive collection of volumes of poetry by others. She bequeathed her collection of Walt Whitman poetry, said to be one of the most important of its kind for its completeness and rarity, to the Library of Congress. Today Carolyn Wells is best known for her light verse, particularly for several classic limericks, including this one:
A canner exceedingly canny
One morning remarked to his granny:
"A canner can can
Any thing that he can
But a canner can't can a can, can he?"
