Excerpt from The Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines in a Series of Tales, Vol. 5
Going to him I Do you know how far it is to the frozen regions whither culprits are banished, little one asked the man.
Yes I know it is a long way off - but I have managed to come nearly a fourth of my journey, and I shall get through the rest, never fear.
Never fear But don't you fear It's a fear ful way, and a fearful place when you get there.
I know it is but if it's bad for me, it's bad for my father - and it will make the place better for him if he have his little Paulina with him, to help him bear its fearfulness.
I am not speaking of what it is to him it would be more tolerable to him, I dare say, with his child to keep him company there but what I mean is, that it will be a terrible place for you - you don't know its horrors.
