A story about five children raised in a "very wicked" household. Four of them are wicked, but the fifth child, Jane, is saved when she learns about God in school. She quotes from the hymn "Little Children, love each other." In Chapter II, Jane's mother send for a man to kill her own children; instead, the man adopts the children into his own happy family, "religious people" who "went to church every Sabbath." At the end, their wicked mother, now "blind and feeble" comes to the children's adopted home but faints "at the sound of their voices." Note in Mary's mother's, (Frances Chrystie's) hand at the bottom of the page reads "Story for the box. Written Between 8 & 9 years of age."
