Page 72 - My kittens, with tails so cunningly curled, Are the prettiest things that can be in the world. The bird on the tree, And the old ewe she, May love their babies exceedingly ; But I love my kittens there, Under the rocking-chair.

Page 89 - God will make and keep you good. Oh, how sorry I am that you have to leave your dear mother. Did she cry when you bade her goodbye? Don't you often think of her at night, when you are going to bed? Do you kneel down and say your prayers? If I were you, I would not care if the other soldiers did laugh; God will smile upon you. I am sorry, very sorry that you are sick. I wish that I could go to nurse you. I could bathe your head, and read to you. Do you know the hymn, " There is a happy land ? " I...
Page 92 - May we meet in that happy land. I do not think that my fellow-soldiers will deter me from serving my Master. There are many others here that his Spirit is striving with.
