It was'the history of a'housemother's day.Jrom the peep of dawn, she was awakened by the baby's cooing 'and calling, .w'ntll the "children were nestled all, snug-'jn their beds" and'the weary time to sit to mend the 'clothes they had their play. It was a realistic true In every particular, that; I wrote to the anony- mous author, thanking for enter- Ing into and describing so fully and sympathetically; the trials and cares and compensations .none but the mother of a family v.'ho is 'levins' and -conscientious can appreciate.
