Black Diamonds, or the Curiosities of Coal (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Black Diamonds, or the Curiosities of Coal Minnie, the other daughter, was a few years younger than her sister, and was a perfect bundle Of whims and oddities, sharp-witted, and with a great exuberance of spirits, yet full Of generous and warm impulses. Often guilty of improprieties and under censure, yet she was the life and pet Of the house hold. She acquired knowledge almost by intuition, but was always sure to arrive at the whimsical aspect Of a subject first, though laughter and tears Often struggled for mastery over her countenance.
