There may be something here. Come home early at noon,and I'll help you get your paper ready. I'll be here, but if you want Frank, you'd better tell him not todawdle over Annette's gate half an hour," began Jack, who could notresist teasing his dignified brother about one of the few foolish thingshe was fond of doing. No romping was allowed there, so a truce was made by locking littlefingers, and both sat down to get their breath. I am to go on the piazza, for an hour, by and by, Doctor said.

Although this here Louisa May Alcott novel, although Jack and Jill is in many ways incredibly preachy and moralising, and definitely much more so than her Little Women, and although I always do tend to cry my eyes out at one particular part (even more so than when Beth dies in Little Women), I keep rereading and enjoying Jack and Jill. I read books by women like Louisa May Alcott because I wish the world were more like the way she painted it, not this depraved rock we currently live on. I'm putting this one on my to-read list because I love her books and I hope she was as "heavy-handed" with the moral talk in this one as she was in her others!.
