Jenny Strong is come to visit us. She came in the morning of today. She came on the logging train . She brought her bags with her. The mamma did send me to meet her at the meeting of the roads . The bags, they were heavy to carry, and my arms got some tired. As we did go along, inbetween times I did look looks at Jenny Strong. There is so much of interest about her. The gray curls about her face did have the proper look she wants them to have. To get that proper look she does them up on curl-papers. I have seen her so do when she was come to visit us before. And this morning her plump cheeks were roses. And all her plumpness did most fill the gray dresses she was wearing. Jenny Strong has little ruffles around the neck of that dress, like the little ruffles that was around the neck of the man with the glove when Titian made his picture. Those ruffles on the neck of the gray dress of Jenny Strong did look like it was their joy to cuddle up against the back of her black bonnet.
