Product description

The Religious Tract Society - Hardcover/Colour plates/illustrations - LUCY MAKES FRIENDS WITH HER COUSIN BELLA. Ogaks punishment was rigorously carried out. At first he pretended to himself that he did not care for it, and was disposed to bring up obstinacy to struggle with his aunts determination. But he knew which would gain the victory at last; and as day after day passed away heavily in his seclusion, without intercourse with any of those around him, and with no means of passing the time otherwise than either in preparing his lessons or in desperate idleness, his resolution gave way. Meanwhile Lucy made some progress in acquaintance with her Cousin Bella. I mean to like you, cousin, though you are prettier than I am, said Bella, one day, after Lucy had been endeavouring for more than an hour to amuse her. Oh, Bella, darling, what a strange thing to say, said Lucy, laughing good-humouredly. No, it is not; it is not at all a strange thing, replied Bella, sharply, and if you say So agttln I wont like you. You know you aro prettier than I, she went on; nurse says so, and so does Mary. I wish they had not said so, I am sure, and you must not think anything about it; dont, dear. How can I help it when I hear it said every day They told me you would be, before you came; and directly I saw you I knew it, and I hated you for it. Oh, darling; I am so sorry to hear this. Why It is the truth. But it is so sad to hate anybody, dear cousin. The Bible tells us to love one another, you know. No, I dont know--at least, I dont know much about it. But I dont hate you now, Lucy. I think I shall love you: I mean to do it, though you are pretty and I am so ugly. Dont you know that I am she demanded, passionately. No, darling, sid luck..
