  1. Mother Bunch had said that the little brown boys in India looked like the bronze Cupid who was on the mantleshelf, but this little boy was white, or rather sallow- faced, and well dressed too, in a tight, round, leather cap, and a dark blue kind of shaggy gown with hairy leggings; and what he was shooting at was some kind of wild- duck or goose, that came tumbling down heavily with the arrow right through its neck. – Little Lucy's Wonderful Globe by Charlotte M.
