THE STORY OF PATSY

by

KATE DOUGLAS WIGGIN

Author of The Birds’ Christmas Carol

[Illustration:  “Patsy minding the Kennett baby.”]

H.C.A.

IN REMEMBRANCE OF GLADNESS GIVEN TO SORROWFUL LITTLE LIVES

“The young lambs are bleating in the meadows,
The young birds are chirping in the nest,
The young fawns are playing with the shadows,
The young flowers are blowing toward the west—­
But the young; young children, O my brothers,
They are weeping bitterly! 
They are weeping in the playtime of the others
In the country of the free.”

Mrs. Browning.

The original Story of Patsy was written and sold some seven years ago for the benefit of the Silver Street Free Kindergartens in San Francisco.  Now that it is for the first time placed in the hands of publishers, I have at their request added new material, so that the present story is more than double the length of the original brief sketch.
