A Letter to Frank by Anonymous
DEAR FRANK,—One day a rabbit came out of the woods to
see if he could find any clover. Some boys saw him, and tried
to catch him. He ran under the barn; then came out, sprang
through the fence, and so got clear.
I will tell you of a smart thing
that my red cow does. When she goes for a drink and finds
the trough empty, she takes hold of the handle with her
horns, and pumps the water.
While I was waiting for a train at the station, the other
day, a boy with a little dog came in to wait also. The poor
dog was afraid, and tried very hard to get away; but the boy
held him fast by a stout string.
There is one very selfish little chicken in my barn. When the
other chickens are just going to sleep, this selfish little
chick pecks them, and drives them down from the roost. He is
very naughty, and wants the roost all to himself.
