Description:

Paperback. 54 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.Excerpt: . . . would be nice if you had a horse, said May; then she could go for a drive sometimes. That would be lovely, agreed Dorothy; but I know we couldnt afford to buy a horse. We havent very much money. Thats the main reason we came up here, because grandma said we couldnt afford to go to the places we used to go to. But you might hire a horse, suggested Jack; you have a barn. Yes, there is a small barn, said Leicester. I think it would be great to hire a horse; that wouldnt cost much, Dot. No, said Dorothy, I dont believe it would. But whod take care of the horse, and whod drive grandma around Why, I can drive, said Leicester, or if grandma wouldnt trust me, Mr. Hickox could drive her. He could take care of the horse, too. Its a good idea, said Dorothy; lets go and ask Mr. Hodges about it now; he always knows about things of that sort. The whole crowd scrambled to their feet, and ran gaily towards Mr. Hodges place. They were not surprised, when he declared he had just the thing for them. A fat, amiable old horse, who was well accustomed to the steep mountain roads, and guaranteed perfectly safe; also a light road-wagon that would hold four, and that was very easy and comfortable. He would rent them this turn-out for ten dollars a week, and he declared that they would find it most convenient; not only for pleasure drives, but for going to market or other errands. Indeed, he said, that the proprietor who had last tried to run the hotel, had engaged that horse for the season. It struck Dorothy as a good plan; and being always quick at decisions, she agreed then and there to take the horse and carriage for a week, saying she felt sure that Grandma Dorrance would approve. Leicester said he would drive it home, and any of the girls who wished to, could go with him, the rest going back in the boats. Dorothy said she would go with him, as she wanted to tell grandma about it herself. As Fairy expressed a great desire to. . . This item ships from multiple locations.
