Excerpt

, I fear, But you are so brave that you won't shed a tear; And although you've one arm, one leg, and no nose, You're dearer to me because of your woes.

"But what was the hardest and cruelest sting Was that father once called you a horrid old thing: He said, 'What a battered and wretched old fright! Do take her away, pray, out of my sight.'

"And, dolly, he said that a new doll he'd buy; To find me a nice one he really would try; She should have two legs, and more than one arm: I am sure that papa did not mean any harm.

"Pray what would they all say if I asked mamma To go out and buy me a nice new papa, Because father dear is old, bald, and gray? I should like very much to hear what he'd say."
