Excerpt: ...Raggedy Andy kept wiggling and twisting until he came to a bend in the pipe and could go no farther. "I can't find them!" he cried. "They have gone farther down the pipe! Now you can pull me up!" "We can't reach you, Raggedy Andy!" Uncle Clem called down the pipe. "Try to wiggle back up a piece and we will catch your feet and pull you up!" Raggedy Andy tried to wiggle backward up the pipe, but his clothes caught upon a little piece of tin which stuck out from the inside of the pipe and there he stayed. He could neither go down nor come back up. "What shall we do?" Uncle Clem cried, "The folks will never find him down there, for we can not tell them where he is, and they will never guess it!" The dolls were all very sad. They stayed out upon the shiny new tin gutter until it began raining and hoped and hoped that Raggedy Andy could get back up to them.

Then they went back to the position each had been in, when Marcella had left them. And although they were very quiet, each one was so sorry to lose Raggedy Andy, and each felt that he would never be found again.

"For all the water from the house runs down the shiny tin gutters and down the pipe into a rain barrel at the bottom!" Then Raggedy Ann remembered that there was an opening at the bottom of the pipe. "Tomorrow night if we have a chance, we dolls must take a stick and see if we can reach Raggedy Andy from the bottom of the pipe and pull him down to us!" she thought. Marcella came up to the nursery and played all day, watching the rain patter upon the new tin gutter. She wondered where Raggedy Andy was, although she did not get worried about him until she had asked Mama where he might be. "He must be just where you left him!" Mama said. "I cannot remember where I left him!"...
