“What is that?” said Lucy, as she came out on the steps.
“Oh, it is a little boat! What a pretty one it is!”
“I will give it to you when it is finished,” said John, kindly. “Would you like to have it?”
“Yes, very much, thank you, John. Has grandma seen it?”
“Not yet; we will take it to her by and by. What have you in your pan, Lucy?”
“Some corn for my hens, John; they must be very hungry by this time.”
