"The Little Lady can hardly get through her supper, she is so sleepy; but she gets over it a good deal while she is being undressed, and there are a number of things that she wants to talk about. "Perhaps you may have heard of the Little Lady who lives in the House of Many Windows, which some people call an apartment house because they do not know that it is really a great castle, with dungeons beneath and battlements at the top, from which you can see ever and ever so far ---- way over the River of the East, even to the Far Land of Trees and Fields where the Little Lady goes in summer time. And you may have heard of the Big Man who lives with the Little Lady, and of the Little Woman." ----- from Chapter 1 (The Little Lady). 'Now I'll say my prayers,' she begins, as her little gown is settled into place and buttoned. 'Is it cold, mamma? Is it too cold to say 'm outside? Is it mamma?' 'I guess not, dear.' The Little Lady becomes an angel for a brief moment. Then she scrambles into bed in a way that would never make you think she was sleepy. The Little Woman lies down by her." ---- from Chapter II (Daffydowndilly). Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 036995
