1 "When children are playing alone on the green, in comes the playmate that never was seen.When children are happy and lonely and good,The Friend of the Children comes out of the wood."

We entered the door marked 'Infants', moved gradually to the other, and were thenhanded on to the world.Lucky, lucky point of time; our eyes were on it always.
