Poor and Proud

by Oliver Optic

I was thrilled beyond belief to find this little gem on the internet. As a child in the l940's, I was given a copy of this wonderful little book and it became the most prized book of my childhood. Somewhere along the way, it was lost , and I despaired of ever finding it again and began wondering if it really had existed. I cannot tell you what it meant to me to be able to re-read it. I have vivid memories of that poor child pulling the molasses candy and burning her fingers. I can still picture my self reading that book and crying at her plight all those many years ago.
Thank you for printing it on the internet. ( I love my computer--it has found me my childhood friend!)
