     See, mamma! What a nice ship Ned has!

     Yes, it is a very nice ship. You and Ned may go

down by the pond and sail it, but do not get into

the water.

     Come, Ned, let us go. Did you see Roy? 

     Yes, and I saw the pretty toys the funny old man

left for Mary.

     What old man, Ned?

     I do not know, but he came and left a ship, drum,

book, and some little dishes. 

     O how good! Look, here is Mary. I will ask her to

let me see them.

     Now let us go and see the nest the hen made in the hay.

     Well, come on. Mary will go too.

     Here is the hen, Ned. Let us see if there are some

little chicks under her.

     Ned, you hold the hen, and Mary will put her hand
into the nest.

     Is there a chick under her, Mary?

     O yes! Take the hen off the nest. 

     Well! well! Do look at the dear little chicks. One, 

two, three, four, five, six, of them.

     Run, Ned, get some food, and we will feed them.

     Will the hen take care of them?

     Yes, she will hide them under her wings.
