what have you done what a sight you are where are your dresses and 

your shawl are the new shoes gone that i just bought for you and the

new stockings that i made myself where are they all heidi

     the child quietly pointed down and said there

     the aunt followed the direction of her finger and descried a little heap 

with a small red dot in the middle which she recognized as the shawl

     unlucky child deta said excitedly what does all this mean why

have you taken your things all off

     because i do not need them said the child not seeming in the least 

repentant of her deed

     how can you be so stupid heidi have you lost your senses the 

aunt went on in a tone of mingled vexation and reproach who do you

think will go way down there to fetch those things up again it is 

half-an-hours walk please peter, run down and get them do not stand

and stare at me as if you were glued to the spot
