Exercise # 18
From "Spotty the Turtle Wins a Race"
Old Mother West Wind, by Thornton W. Burgess 

     So it was agreed that Peter Rabbit and Reddy Fox and Billy Mink

should start together from the old butternut tree on one edge of the 

Green Meadows, race away across the Green Meadows to the little 

hill on the other side and each bring back a nut from the big hickory

which grew there. The one who first reached the old butternut tree 

with a hickory nut would be declared the winner. The Merry Little 

Breezes flew about over the Green Meadows telling everyone about 

the race and everyone planned to be there.
