Pickwick, trying to get up an awful frown and only succeeding in producing an amiable smile. I planned it, and she only gave in after lots of teasing. Allow me to present the club key, and with many thanks for your favor, take my seat. Weller deposited a little key on the table and subsided, the warming pan clashed and waved wildly, and it was some time before order could be restored. A long discussion followed, and everyone came out surprising, for everyone did her best. So it was an unusually lively meeting, and did not adjourn till a late hour, when it broke up with three shrill cheers for the new member. Tragedies and cravats, poetry and pickles, garden seeds and long letters, music and gingerbread, rubbers, invitations, scoldings, and puppies. How they laughed when the secret came out, never dreaming how many love letters that little post office would hold in the years to come. I want to learn some new songs, and my children need fitting up for the summer. They are dreadfully out of order and really suffering for clothes. Fun forever, and no grubbing! They all drank it merrily, and began the experiment by lounging for the rest of the day. Beth began by rummaging everything out of the big closet where her family resided, but getting tired before half done, she left her establishment topsyturvy and went to her music, rejoicing that she had no dishes to wash. Amy arranged her bower, put on her best white frock, smoothed her curls, and sat down to draw under the honeysuckle, hoping someone would see and inquire who the young artist was. As no one appeared but an inquisitive daddylonglegs, who examined her work with interest, she went to walk, got caught in a shower, and came home dripping. At teatime they compared notes, and all agreed that it had been a delightful, though unusually long day. Jo had burned the skin off her nose boating, and got a raging headache by reading too long. But these were mere trifles, and they assured their mother that the experiment was working finely. Beth got on pretty well, for she was constantly forgetting that it was to be all play and no work, and fell back into her old ways now and then.
