Willie, Rose, and Kate.

A pretty little chapbook with characters dressed in the styles of the early 19c, but with late 19th c child rearing practices (and simplified mob-caps)!

When Lucy comes back very late after supper after a day playing in the fields, "You promised me, dear child, that you would not be long, And yet you stayed quite late/ You know 'twas very wrong."

These little books were sold in packets to be used as school reward books and little children's hospital presents and this title was also #7 of the Halfpenny Reward Books packet.
