Excerpt from Dorothy and Her Friends
One pleasant morning ust at the end of March, a little girl, dressed as if for a journey, was standing on the steps of a large pleasant house which faced a wide village street, looking much excited. Just behind her a small Skye ter rier, in an attitude of extreme dejection, was watching her through the tangles of his hair. He knew that his mistress was going away. In front of the Rectory opposite a boy had climbed the gatepost in order to command the widest possible view, and a slim, straight girl, with spectacles and two little wisps of smoothly braided hair on her shoulders, was bending over the top of the gate, straining her powers of vision to see what was not to be seen. Nothing moved along the wide tranquil main street of High Elms except the butcher, serving his cus tomers with chops and joints.
