Memory Bells. Alice Pease Bates. Buffalo: Charles Wells Moulton, 1894.
"Memory bells — how sweet the chime, When the soul looks back on the march of time! Though their cadence has often a minor strain, And wrings the heart with that throbbing pain. That it felt when the wound was fresh with grief, And even time scarce brought relief.”

Aunt Louisa’s Nursery Favourite. Laura Valentine. London: Frederick Warne and Co.; New York: Scribner, Welford and Co., c.1874.
"Once upon a time, in the days of the Fairies, there lived, on the borders of a great wood, a widow who had two daughters. She was a silly, ill-tempered woman, very proud and disagreeable. Her elder daughter, who was like her in temper, was her favourite child; and she spoiled her by constant praise and petting, till the girl grew so proud and rude, that.no one loved her except her mother."
