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."
