                      SARA CREWE
                          OR
            WHAT HAPPENED AT MISS MINCHIN'S

                          BY
                FRANCES HODGSON BURNETT


In the first place, Miss Minchin lived in London. 
Her home was a large, dull, tall one, in a large,
dull square, where all the houses were alike,
and all the sparrows were alike, and where all the
door-knockers made the same heavy sound, and
on still days--and nearly all the days were still--
seemed to resound through the entire row in which
the knock was knocked.  On Miss Minchin's door there
was a brass plate.  On the brass plate there was
inscribed in black letters,

MISS MINCHIN'S
SELECT SEMINARY FOR YOUNG LADIES

Little Sara Crewe never went in or out of the house
without reading that door-plate and reflecting upon it.
