“Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.” Ten Christmas Stories
BY EDWARD E. HALE, AUTHOR OF “TEN TIMES ONE IS TEN,” ETC. WITH ILLUSTRATION BY F. O. C. DARLEY
This is a collection of ten Christmas Stories, some of which have been published before. I have added a little essay, written on the occasion of the first Christmas celebrated by the King of Italy in Rome.
The first story has never before been published.
It is but fair to say that I have not drawn on imagination for Laura’s night duty, alone upon her island. This is simply the account of what a brave New-England woman did, under like circumstances, because it was the duty next her hand.
