St. Nicholas for Boys and Girls, Vol. 46 : May, 1919 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from St. Nicholas for Boys and Girls, Vol. 46: May, 1919 She hugged the toy and smiled, while the nurse looked at the happy face and said softly: Yes, Albert is always ready to help. Now I wonder if he would like a story. Albert's face brightened at the suggestion; but before he could answer, Josephine broke in. Yes, yes! She exclaimed. Please tell us about the brave knight Godfrey, who fought back the robber band. Outside, the gloaming had begun to paint shadow-pictures, and, on the sweep of lawn that stretched like a rug around the chateau, gaunt, dark figures lay. Their fantastic arms reached up among the gargoyles and out to the wooded bluffs that cut down abruptly to the river Semois. Twilight cries of birds rang through the glens. Somewhere to the south, hounds bayed intermittently, and the sound of horns and answering horns told of a group of hunters homeward bound after a day's sport in the Ardennes.
