    In the early s, she became a governess for the younger children of the Parnell family in the rural town of Browns, Dallas County. What an inspiration she was! And she went back to the man what sold her the and Tot book, and told him all about it; and he took back all the little stoves and tubs and iuns and things she had bort, and give her the money, and she carried it strait to the poor woman, and told her to buy some bread and cloes for her chillen. After thinking for some time, Diddie wrote, "Once 'twas a little girl, and she was so bad," and read it aloud; then said, "Now, Dumps, sposin' you make up the nex' line. But he was a very good old man; as Mammy used to say, "he wuz de piuses man dar wuz on de place;" and he had for years led in "de pra'r-meetin's, and called up de mo'ners. And now the scene changed.

    Yer better quit dem ways yer got, er runnin' off an' er gwine in de mud, an' er gittin' yer cloes tor'd, an' er gittin' me butted wid sheeps; yer better quit it, I tell yer; ef yer don't, de deb'l gwine git yer, sho's yer born. Tot was so little, and treated her dollies so badly, that "Old Santa" had brought her an India-rubber baby, dressed in pink tarlatan, with a white sash. Our sons have definite memories of Winkie, while Katie's memories are based on family lore. And now, the plank being as full as it would hold, they all returned to the hotel to arrange the table. We subscribe to and comply with their codes of ethics. How the little folks laughed and chatted as they pulled the things out of their stockings!

    The procession drew up in front of the house, and Diddie, Dumps, and Tot went from one end of it to the other distributing candies and apples, and oranges and toys; and how the bright faces did light up with joy as the little darkies laughed and chuckled, and I dare say would have jumped up and clapped their hands but for Aunt Nancy, who was keeping a sharp eye upon them, and who would say, as every present was delivered, "Min' yer manners, now! Mammy made a bed for the doggies in a box in one corner of the nursery, and the children were so excited and so happy that she could hardly get them to bed at all; but after a while Tot's blue eyes began to droop, and she fell asleep in Mammy's arms, murmuring, "De booful itty doggie. Good luck with your next project—wherever it takes you. I jes come fur de chil'en, an' yer bet not fool 'long er me, yer low-life sheep. Diddie carried her her meals, and Dumps gave her "Stella," a china doll that was perfectly good, only she had one leg off and her neck cracked; but, for all that, she was a great favorite in the nursery, and it grieved Dumps very much to part with her; but she thought it was her "Christian juty," as she told Diddie; so Aunt Milly made Stella a new green muslin dress, and she was transferred to Dilsey. And so at the breakfast-table next morning, when Dumps asked her papa to tell her something to name her puppy, Diddie gravely remarked, "I think, Dumps, we had better name 'um Cherubim an' Seraphim, for they continually do cry.

Diddie, Dumps, and Tot book

As I grew older, I realized that for my mother sharing my father with her demanding sister-in-law was exceedingly stressful, so much so my mother refused to bury my father in his parent's section at Hollywood—the thought of "resting" in turmoil next to her sister-in-law was too much to bear.

Nancy Walker You have done a truly magnificant job pulling together so many pieces of Big Pollys life. I had no idea you were working on it.

Return to List of Illustrations The winter was always a great season with the children; Mammy would let them have so many candy-stews, and they parched "goobers" in the evenings, and Aunt Milly had to make them so many new doll's clothes, to "keep them quiet," as Dumps said; and such romps and games as they would have in the Dumps nursery!

Many Diddie. They were to have the frolic only on condition that they would go to bed and not insist on being at the wedding. It is all I anticipated and more. Diddie was perched upon one gate-post and Dumps on the other, while Tot was sitting on the fence, held on by Riar, lest she might fall.

I'd forgotten about her readings. Den de little birds would sing,' I wush I wuz;' an' dey'd wush dey wuz lubly, an' good, an' gran'; un' 'twould all come ter pass jes so.

For instance, "he didn't 'low no singin'uv week-er-day chunes uv er Sunday," nor "no singin' uv reelchunes" dance music at any time; nor did he "'low no sassin' ofole pussons.

But after the table was set the excitement was all over, for there was nobody to be the guest. Miss "Unker Bill" was shown to her room; and now Riar came out, shaking her hand up and down, and saying, "Ting-er-ling—ting-er-ling—ting-er-ling! Reading it this weekend was sheer delight.
