"Well, Amy child, how can I help you?"
"Why, Polly Pepper, what do you mean?"
"Baby ought to have a Christmas tree," said Phronsie slowly
"Oh!" said Jack Loughead. Then he tapped his boot with his walking stick
"Joel's gone," panted Phronsie, flying back
Joel swinging a big box, rushed into Dunraven Hall
"And did we," cried Phronsie, "find it out, Polly, and spoil it all?"
"Will you?" asked Phronsie, looking down into their faces
"We don't know how to tell it, Grandpapa"
"Now do set us to work, Joel"
"Oh, you don't know how I miss those boys!"
"And please make dear papa give her the right things"
Charlotte, standing composedly in one corner of the hall
Alexia coolly read on, one arm around Polly
"My dear Alexia," cried Miss Salisbury, quite softened, "don't feel so"
"I'll not sing a note!"
"For shame, Polly, if the Little Brown House teachings are forgotten like this"
Polly turned and waved her music-roll at them
"I'm not going to lecture you"
"Don't stop me," cried Pickering crossly
"I'm going home," declared Charlotte

About the Author

Margaret Sidney was the pseudonym of American writer Harriett Mulford Stone Lothrop (1844 - 1924). In addition to writing popular children's stories, she ran her husband Daniel Lothrop's publishing company after his death. The daughter of New Haven architect, Sidney Mason Stone, she was "brought up in an atmosphere of culture and learning enhanced by free access to her father's large library." From early girlhood she "delighted in creating imaginary people". She was educated at seminaries near her home and graduated from Miss Dutton's School at Grove Hall in New Haven in 1862. While a student there "she displayed such mental alertness, combined with retentive memory and a great imaginative and poetic talent that she was marked for future success." She traveled extensively in the United States, and began creating literary compositions early in life.
