Page 55 - This, in truth, was poor Caroline's mug and stool, having been appropriated to her from childhood upwards ; and here it was her custom meekly to sit, and eat her daily meal. It was well that the girl was placed near her father, else I do believe she would have been starved ; but Gann was much too good-natured to allow that any difference should be made between her and her sisters.
