|Hurrying back to Elsie
||By-and-by, when my feets were dry, they did put my shoes on and they laced them up. They didn't miss a string-hole like I do sometimes when I am in a hurry to get them tied up. Then, when they did have them tied up, they did want me to stay to dinner. But I did have feels I must hurry back to the
house of Elsie
and tell her that the baby was hers. She might be having anxious feels about it. When I did say good-bye they did give me two apples -- one for
and one for
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
. And they did give me some cheese for
Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus
and corn for
Lars Porsena of Clusium
. And they came a long way with me.
